Link.

I don't know if this is another massive tax debt to be paid off, and the inclusion of a secretly gay and Jewish policeman is slightly worrying, but I'm going to set my brainscrew for "cautiously optimistic."

I've never realized how scary Alan Moore looks.

Japanese tourists have on two occasions mistaken me for Alan Moore. What he'd be doing in Borders on Charing Cross Rd, I'm not sure.
Come read about Dreamhounds of Paris actually being played.

You want to try running into him in the local petrol station, that's scary;)

Perhaps he's stealing copies of Before Watchmen to burn then in some magical rite? Or just burn them for the hell of it.

(I once thought I saw Al Jourgensen in a Pizza Hut, so, one never know...)

I don't share AH's optimism. I don't think Moore gets Lovecraft.

My optimism is perilously unrestrained. This looks great.

I think the Courtyard demonstrates AM gets HPL. I think the sequel demonstrates that he sometimes takes it too far. That said, he's illustrating what HPL implies.

I've been reading up on Alan Moore's take on HPL for my essay, and I think he finds the man more fascinating than the fiction - and while he might dwell on his flaws (Moore would certainly disagree with HPL on nearly any social or political issue), I think it's just the strangeness of his life and positions that click with AM.

What is more disturbing is not running into Alan Moore, but having Alan Moore run at you.

Did... did Alan Moore actually charge at you? Good grief, the mental image is equally hilarious and terrifying.

I think nothing about Alan Moore is more terrifying than when someone created a magical girl manga based on him.

A brother of a friend. Alan Moore mistook him for an old friend and ran at his car, banging furiously on his windows. Said frightened driver just sped away.

I'm surprised said driver didn't have a heart attack out of sheer terror. I've never met Mr. Moore, but every picture I've seen presents him as an intimidating sort of man.

Not seen this news elsewhere on the site, although I've admittedly not looked too hard.

 

Mr Moore is releasing a new Lovecraft based comic book series called 'Providence'.  You can read an interview with him regarding the series on the link below:

Personally I found Neonomicon a difficult read, enjoyable in places but deeply disturbing in others.  Will be interested to see where this goes.  I do love the artwork of Jacen Burrows.

The sad thing is, I know which book of Lovecraft criticism he's talking about. The very sad thing is, it isn't mine.

I have a couple of buddies (more like "acquaintances") who look very similar, only taller/bigger. Alan's a bit manic, but I never considered him "intimidating". Sort of a more erudite and articulate "Aqualung".

 

BTW, I look forward to more blog posts, Mr. Derie!  :D
