I don't think he needs presentation, but this comic book genius is personally quite unique and even though Watchmen, V for Vendetta and Lost Girls impressed me, I didn't had seen how complex was him until I read the 12 issues of Tomorrow Stories that actually left me wondering that if all that was written by him, since it goes from the very experimental stories of not-so-ambiguously sexual Cobweb where one issue was written as a Little Lulu story and another was a pastiche of XIX century illustrations sharing its pages with The Greyshirt, a The Spirit-type of Superhero where most stories were told by villains in different forms (one story was told in the form of a building, each floor was a diferent decade seen how the villain's killer was abused by him through the years and another one was entirely told through the mirrors of a cab) and not far from here in the same magazine there is The First American and U.S. Angel, a hilarious take that to the archetypical all-american superhero with references to pop culture (the First American, for example have had about 6 or 7 sidekick boys who have died for his own's incompetence or one of the first issues where he and U.S. Angel fight against Jerry Springler) and who could forget Johnny B. Quick, a boy genius whose misunderstanding of aphorisms makes him make floating cats by glueing the to butter toasts or trying to stop the light so this could follow traffic regulations? Personally, it's impressive how all this came from the same mind.



So, what do you think of him? his works? his obsessions? he is currently opposing the Watchmen film even though seems to be the first decent adaptation of his work.

I absolutely adore Alan Moore. His work...is different. He is ...well, I can't describe him. But, his graphic novels leave you in awe. It makes you go wtf and double-check what you've read. I can't really say much about him because I lack the words, but he's brilliant.

Like you said, Max, it's hard to believe that some of his works are actually his. And, I for one, am super excited about the movie! It looks amaaaaaaazing. It seems to follow the graphic novel, but will it convey the same message? I don't know. V was a pretty good movie, but it wasn't the graphic novel. Maybe this one will? Maybe since it's rumoured to run close to 3 hours....or was it less? I don't remember any more.

It's said it would run 3 hours if the studio allows it...

What's your favorite work by Alan Moore?

Side question: didn't Alan Moore's wife create the 'adventurous girls' tale with Neverland's Wendy, Wonderland's Alice and Oz's Dorothy?

Lost Girls, and they created that together. He writing and she drawing. I read it, it's quite erotic...
