Watchmen came later in Moore's career and was made into a movie

Comic book fans with one of Apple's latest phones may now be able to enjoy access to a rare look at the early work of an industry legend.

Alan Moore, creator of Watchmen, V For Vendetta and The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, has had one of his oldest works converted for use with the iPhone 3G and iPod Touch.

Visitors to the App Store can now download Future Shocks, a short story strip that was originally published on the pages of long-established UK comic 2000 AD - home of well-known characters such as Judge Dredd and Slaine.

Commenting on the launch, the creative director of Clickwheel - the group behind the release - Will Simons said iPhone users now had access to the best comic-reading software and content around.

"If you like comics, if you want easy and high-quality entertainment, you need to check out the Future Shocks series - you won't be disappointed," he added.

A serialised motion comic of the original Watchmen graphic novel is also available from iTunes.
