According to Sunday’s edition of The Independent, In Alan Moore’s latest chapter of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Harry Potter appears as the Antichrist, killing someone with a bolt of lighting from his flaccid penis. Yes, you read that correctly. Absurd, hysterical, and likely to make millions around the world burst into tears at the sight of their favorite anti-heroe’s junk. While some may say this is tasteless, anyone who knows Moore will understand this as satire, and a commentary on the current trend in publishing to take great stories and turn them into massive cash cows. The writer of The Independent article, Laura Sneddon, got an exclusive first look at the book, and she wrote a damn good piece about it. READ MORE
Back in the 80s when Alan Moore was in his heyday of creation, he wrote a little (actually massive) screenplay called Fashion Beast. The idea was to modernize the classic tale of “Beauty and the Beast” in a dystopic, and slightly horrific, society (this reeks of Moore). The film script never saw the light of day. The screenplay has now been adapted to comic form, by Moore himself, for a ten-issue series to be published by Avatar Press beginning in September. This may be the book fans have been waiting for to bridge Moore’s visionary storytelling from the 80s with his more experimental work of the past decade. There are a bunch of alternate covers that you can check out below with some more details. READ MORE
With the all the superhero blockbusters hogging theaters this summer, it seems that film producers are relying more and more on comic books for their source material. On top of the big-budget superhero movies, the success of The Walking Dead TV series, and films like 30 Days of Night and Blade, are perhaps a sign that we’ll be seeing more horror comics being adapted for the screen in the near future. While the horror genre hasn’t always been the most accessible, recent trends in pop culture have veered towards the darker side of fiction, opening the door for horror comic adaptation. We’ve done some wishful thinking and put together a list of comics we’re dying to see in live action, some of which are already in the works. READ MORE
Harvey Pekar, who was a renowned comic writer, past away a few years ago and recently his wife and a few good friends took it upon themselves to begin a Kickstarter campaign. The goal of the campaign was to get a Pekar memorial created at the Cleveland library, where he spent most of his time. As a little push for people to donate, the mastermind Alan Moore took part in a two-hour web chat. Moore shares his opinions on Before Watchmen, Grant Morrison, and more. Thanks to reddit for bringing this to my attention. It’s well worth the watch.
Alan Moore has always been one cheeky dude, but this 1983 pastiche of Frank Miller’s “Daredevil” takes the cake. Now this Doesn’t overtly reference Miller’s work, but it’s pretty evident if you’ve ever read his Daredevil. Even if you haven’t chanced a look at Miller’s version of the blind super lawyer, this comic is absolutely hilarious constantly sneering at this image:
