Have you seen 'The mind scape of alan moore'? quite an interesting watch, I haven't read anything by him however...

Is it the film interview of him? I've been meaning to watch that. You should most definitely read Watchmen - one of my favourite books ever.

I also enjoyed Lost Girls but it's not a particularly good graphic novel... apart from being very "graphic" haha.
