Dark Horse Books has announced Dave Gibbons’ Confabulation: An Anecdotal Autobiography! This comprehensive, in-depth, and personal journey through the eyes of one of the world’s most famous comics creators spans his earliest years copying Superman and Batman comics as a kid, to co-creating the bestselling graphic novel of all-time, Watchmen, and beyond.
Presented alphabetically, with informally written anecdotes that can be read from cover-to-cover or simply dipped into, Gibbons reveals unseen comics’ pitches, life as the first Comics Laureate, adventures in advertising and album cover design, and his journey from fanzine artist to infiltrating DC Comics in the 1970s. This book covers everything from his work on Doctor Who and meeting Tom Baker to his induction into the Eisner Hall of Fame. Gibbons also discusses, for the first time anywhere, the end of his relationship with fellow Watchmen co-creator Alan Moore. Packed with over 300 iconic, rarely seen, and unpublished art pieces and photographs, Confabulation: An Anecdotal Autobiography not only entertains, but peels back the layers of a fascinating career in comics.
Confabulation: An Anecdotal Autobiography hardcover will be available everywhere books are sold October 25, 2022. It is available for pre-order on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and at your local comic shop and bookstore. Confabulation: An Anecdotal Autobiography will retail for $39.99 in the US, £29.99 in the UK, and $49.99 in Canada.
