Okay, just to make it clear, Alan W. Moore is nowhere in this anthology comic from Atomeka Press. Alan Moore, however, makes two contributions, one featuring the Warpsmiths of Marvelman fame and illustrated by Garry Leach, the other a chapter in his Bojeffries saga with Steve Parkhouse drawing.
A1 was an independent attempt to give some of the top (mainly British) creators a forum in which to create their own work, free from constrictive regular deadlines. It pretty much works that way. In addition to Moore and his workmates, this all black-and-white volume of the 6-issue series includes Dave Gibbons, Brian Bolland, Neil Gaiman, Dave McKean, John Bolton and Eddie Campbell, to name just a few.
The work is of a very high standard, the only really noticeably weak point the silly furry-animal story 'Wayfarer: A Taste of Gold' from Paul Behrer and Una Fricker; the illustration in it is solid, but it's just kind of a one-off lame gag strip (featuring some sort of warrior rat) that takes pages to come off, when it could've done it in one. My favourite piece is probably 'Bad Bread,' from Graham Marks and Bolton; it's a short but handsome story of Pieter Breughel eating some bad food and hallucinating the creations we know him for.
A1 came out at a good time for comic anthologies, and was echoed by the same title for a short run stateside. This was a promising start, and a good miscellany for fans of the medium.
