Alan Moore's Time Twisters!!

Early in Alan Moore's writing career he penned a number of short stories for 2000 AD where he developed his ability to spin fun stories from cool concepts.
Two of my favorites featured a funny little character that Moore and Watchmen collaborator, Dave Gibbons created, called Doctor. Dibworthy.

Later Moore and Alan Langford revisited Doctor Dibworthy for another romp in conceptual time travel.

In these stories you can see Moore's love of playing with cool ideas. He would often use this technique in his writings especially in his short stories for DC and his ABC line of comics. It is also one of the things that makes Moore so great..

These stories were taken from Qualitiy Comics' Time Twisters #2 (10-87), and Time Twisters #6 (2-88) respectively.
