Strange Attractor has announced the death of its contributor Steve Moore, comics creator, editor and so much more, over the weekend.

Long standing editor and contributor to The Fortean Times magazine from the beginning, creator of 2000AD‘s Future Shocks, of Red Fang and Valkyries, of Lazer Erazer and Axel Pressbutton, contributor to Warrior Magazine, 2000AD, Doctor Who Magazine and so much more. He was also the subject of Alan Moore‘s novella, gallery and album Unearthing, and Moore cited his friend since childhood as a principal creative influence.

He wrong Young Tom Strong and Jonni Future for DC Comics as well as the novelisation of V For Vendetta. And created the Hercules comics for Radical, which he considered his finest comics work.

At the time of his death he was working on the Bumper Book Of Magic with Alan Moore for Top Shelf and Knockabout.

There is much outpouring of feelings from the comics community, and much more to come. Our feelings of condolence go out to his friends, family and all who knew the man.
