Dave Gibbons’ ‘Confabulation: An Anecdotal Autobiography!’ Details the Artist’s History in Comics

Dark Horse Books upcoming Dave Gibbons’ Confabulation: An Anecdotal Autobiography! offers an in-depth and personal look at the artist’s career in comics, from his early 2000 AD days to Watchmen, Give Me Liberty, and beyond.    

Confabulation is arranged alphabetically instead of chronologically, and is filled with informally written anecdotes that allows readers to examine his creative life in a creative fashion. Inside, Gibbons’ autobiography contains unseen comic pitches, discussions about his life as the first Comics Laureate, his early advertising and album cover designs, and plenty about the comics that he is best known for, with over 300 illustrations, covers, and photographs.

Speaking of comics that Gibbons is best know for, the artist offers a great deal of insight into Watchmen, and discusses, for the first time in a publication, the end of his relationship with fellow Watchmen co-creator Alan Moore.

The Confabulation: An Anecdotal Autobiography hardcover will be available everywhere books are sold on October 25, 2022 for a retail price of $39.99.
