    Halo Jones. You can’t forget Halo Jones.

    And SWAMP THING!!! Don’t forget he wrote for Swamp Thing which went from 2nd rate horror comic to Kirby Award winner and one of the first DC titles to loose the “Approved by the Comics Code Authority” badge. IMHO, Swamp Thing is superior to Watchmen. Also Miracle Man (I think called Marvel Man in the UK) is also great. In fact it’s been ‘sampled’ in several super hero movies of late.

    Curious what it has to say about “Lost Girls”, or if it casually ignores it’s existence.

    The book jacket looks like a ’70s smooooth rock album cover.  Possibly a ’70s outlaw country album cover.  I give it a thumbs up. 

  5. The latest League of Extraordinary Gentlemen has also been released and they are also reprinting Swamp Thing in new hardcover editions.  I’m glad books are still around!

    Hands down, best cover I’ve seen in a long time.

    And Watchmen Babies. Can’t forget them.

    Are we absolutely sure that this guy isn’t Rasputin?

    Am I the only one here hoping Millidge will get back to work on _Strangehaven_ now that this is out?

    This book reads more like a savant fanboy’s listing of all things Moore rather than really offering any analysis or insight or even in-person interviews with Moore himself. It’s nothing more than an exhaustive career summary filled in with a mix of quotes taken from a variety of sources and other publications. It’s not even very well edited (typos galore).
    If you’re not terribly familiar with Moore’s stuff, it’s a good enough entry point, and an exhaustive must-read list, but really, it wasn’t as interesting as Moore’s work itself, or Moore talking about his work and ideas in-depth, which he does in many other, less expensive publications. The CD’s got some decent jams on ‘er though.

    Alan Moore had me at Future Shocks/Time Twisters and later Skizz although it would take me years to realise they were the work of one man. I’ve been a lifelong superfan through Warrior and Swamp Thing/ Hellblazer and onwards… Just the thought of Valerie’s letter brings a lump to my throat.

    I’m old enough to remember the Roscoe Moscow strip he wrote and drew for Sounds in the late 1970s.  First time I met him, I asked him: “Are you Curt Vile?”  He grinned and said that he had been seen in the same room as Curt once or twice…
