Alan Moore

One of the most renowned and respected comic book creators of all time, Alan Moore is also a filmmaker, anarchist, and accomplished wizard in service of the snake god Glycon. Bursting onto the comics scene in the 1980s, Moore effectively broke the entire comics industry, which has been trapped in a nostalgic feedback loop since 1986.

From coverage of Moore’s seminal work with Dave Gibbons, Watchmen, (not to be confused with Moore’s fish-semenal work, Neonomicon) to his current projects and cultural commentary, Bleeding Cool brings you all the latest news about Alan Moore as well as the unauthorized sequels and adaptations of his work. Moore’s most famous comics also include From Hell, Swamp Thing, Marvelman, League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, V for Vendetta, Promethea, The Killing Joke, Tom Strong, Providence, Lost Girls, and others.

Of Moore’s magickal prowess, the only comic book creator viewed as having comparable magick abilities is fellow Englishman Grant Morrison. However, fellow comic book creator “The Great One” Brian Bendis has gone on the record as saying that Moore could easily defeat Morrison in a wizard battle. “Alan Moore’s mage powers are not to be f***ed with,”  Bendis said. It’s a lesson DC Comics, which has kept control of the Watchmen rights instead of releasing them to Moore and Gibbons after keeping the book in print for perpetuity to fulfill a contractual loophole, must one day learn as well.
