Alan Moore To Create A Social Network?

Tomorrow’s Observer newspaper will feature a sprawling interview and feature with Alan Moore.

In which we learn about his great-grandfather, Ginger Vernon, who “used to trade caricatures for pints in the pub.”

He hates being coerced, whatever the financial incentive, and it may well be something in the blood. His great-grandfather Ginger, the hard-drinking cartoonist, was at the turn of the 20th century offered the chance to become the director of a glass company in town, Moore claims. He was told: “You’ll make millions! The only condition is that you stay out the pub for two weeks.” The answer, inevitably, was no; and Vernon spent the rest of his life walking past the mansion of the man who took the job.

The parallels are clear.

Not content to have made Jimmy’s End and its prologue Act of Faith, he has thought up all sorts of surplus fantasies that might flavour future episodes set in the same world. He has taken the time to write a fictional radio show that could feature at some stage, and with his daughter Amber has invented a computer game that might get a mention. He’s come up with a line of energy drinks. Also a social network.

Twatchmen? Fashion Book? Okay, this is probably a fictional social network… but could it spin off into reality as well?

Also, we get Bleeding Cool favourite Khandie Khisses‘ first appearance (in the background) of the newspaper in question…
