This was Alan in Northampton about six or seven hours ago, with moi and Jonathan Ross...

Excuse blatant name-drop, but hey, this is of comicsy interest, no? ;-)

Somehow I never pictured him wearing a three piece pinstripe suit.

Great photo!

Is it okay to feel that Alan Moore is pretty un-frightening and kind of a grandpa or will he send his snake god after me?.

Amadeo, Saturday, 3 March 2007 09:38 (seventeen years ago) link

Don't worry. His snake god only exists in Ideaspace. ;-)

I guess I can add here, because I mentioned it breifly on my blog, and JR talked about it very briefly on his radio show last week, so I'm told (missed that!), that he is making a comics-related TV show. I know a few people have asked him, 'Why don't you do that?', inc Damon Albarn on the Friday Night show back when Demon Days came out... well, I know for a fact he's wanted to do that for years (and did try to talk Bragg into doing an SBS about Kirby in the early '90s, to no avail), but it hasn't been possible till now.

And it might not be a one-off. I guess it depends on how it all goes down. Anyhow, that's why he was with Moore, and as for me, I did a bit of work on the show and tagged along because, hey, Alan Moore's always worth seeing! I filmed a bit of it myself on my camcorder, inc stuff that won't be shown, but I can't let anyone see that -- sorry! Alan was on good form, though, mixing spurious storytelling with incisive commentary, and a real fun thing to see. :-)

I'm guessing it'll be on BBC4 in the Summer, but not sure yet.

So, Big Numbers: the "most ambitious comic book of Alan Moore's career," according to a

Chuck_Tatum, Thursday, 5 March 2009 15:30 (fifteen years ago) link

...slightly rubbish Slate article on Slate. I haven't read it. Did he ever finish it? Should I look out for it?

don't bother.

Matt OCD (Raw Patrick), Thursday, 5 March 2009 15:36 (fifteen years ago) link

Loads of potential, but it was still in the setting-up stages so no idea how well it was going to go. There were a couple of bits that were Bojeffries-level funny.

WmC, Thursday, 5 March 2009 16:12 (fifteen years ago) link

It might have been ambitious, but BIG NUMBERS is the least complete of just about anything he's written that I can think of. An interesting fragment, yes.

Loads of potential, but it was still in the setting-up stages so no idea how well it was going to go. There were a couple of bits that were Bojeffries-level funny.

Exactly so. It doesn't actually get started before it runs out (there are only 2 issues extant, right?)

James Morrison, Thursday, 5 March 2009 22:12 (fifteen years ago) link

I want to say there's three, but I only have two of them. Maybe it was that there was a third one completed and then destroyed (as the story goes.)

Matt M., Friday, 6 March 2009 00:07 (fifteen years ago) link

I thought it was two as well.

Alex in SF, Friday, 6 March 2009 00:09 (fifteen years ago) link

If you can find those two issues they are worth getting (great art too) and it's definitely his great unfinished work (and it's not his only unfinished work).

Alex in SF, Friday, 6 March 2009 00:11 (fifteen years ago) link

Two were published. I seem to remember that Al Columbia destroyed a bunch of the art he did for #3...?

WmC, Friday, 6 March 2009 00:28 (fifteen years ago) link

WmC's recollection matches mine.

Thrills as Cheap as Gas (Oilyrags), Friday, 6 March 2009 01:21 (fifteen years ago) link

Actually, I think all of 3 and significant headway on 4.

Thrills as Cheap as Gas (Oilyrags), Friday, 6 March 2009 01:21 (fifteen years ago) link

Dave Sim would probably try to strike me dead telepathically for saying this, but I wonder if the series might have progressed farther if Moore hadn't been under the pressure of trying to self-publish.

WmC, Friday, 6 March 2009 01:38 (fifteen years ago) link

Of course it would have, the completed #3 could have been printed if he hadn't gone bust paying his wife and her girlfriend a wage and office expenses. Or the other publisher hadn't chosen not to, as actually happened (Tundra had taken over by then).

#1 and #2 were done by Sink and Columbia and published. #3 was done by Sink solo and never published (though many pages were later shown unlettered in Submedia and TCJ and another magazine that I forget right now but had a green cover). #4 was completed by Columbia solo and then destroyed.

Bernard's Butter (sic), Friday, 6 March 2009 02:13 (fifteen years ago) link

I bought a copy of the script for #3 from a CBLDF auction a few years ago. It's very good, and very long.

So LoEG 1910 is pretty underwhelming huh. Barely enough plot to get your teeth into, I'm just hoping it's building up to a pay-off in the second two chapters.

Re-read Halo Jones over the weekend. That's how you do it.

chap, Tuesday, 2 June 2009 22:30 (fifteen years ago) link

Looking back at Moore's body of work, I've started getting the feeling he's always been more of a concept man and the babies themselves are a little thin and spindly when they finally plop out onto the ground. I'd say From Hell and the Bojeffries stories are tied for his best.

resistance is feudal (WmC), Tuesday, 2 June 2009 22:36 (fifteen years ago) link

Looking forward to the complete (with new final story) Bojeffries Saga!

James Morrison, Tuesday, 2 June 2009 23:50 (fifteen years ago) link

What?!?! I missed this news!

resistance is feudal (WmC), Wednesday, 3 June 2009 00:37 (fifteen years ago) link

Moore mentioned it in a recent interview at Forbidden Planet blog (

Relevant bit reprinted here:

PÓM: And I think the other thing that I know is forthcoming – I believe is forthcoming – is – isn’t there a new Bojeffries Saga story?

AM: Yes, Bojeffries Saga. ... yeah, I have written a final Bojeffries – well, I don’t know if it’s a final – but I’ve written a kind of, it wouldn’t hurt if it was the last one, although maybe me and Steve will want to do some more with them. What we’re going to do is, we’re going to collect up, with Top Shelf, all of the Bojeffries material that’s appeared to date, and we’re going to cap it all off with a twenty-four page story called After They Were Famous, which is the Bojeffries in 2009, existing side-by-side with culture as it is now, as opposed to culture as it was in the eighties and the early nineties, and I think it’s the best Bojeffries thing yet, and

It’s great working with Kevin on the one hand and Steve Parkhouse on the other. They are two of the most British of all of my collaborators, you know, their influence are – I mean, this is not to mock the artists whose influences are more from the other side of the Atlantic, but there’s something very cheering about working with a couple of artists who grew up on the same Beano and Dandy illustrators that I did. You know, the Paddy Brennans and the Ken Reids and the Leo Baxendales, and who kind of worked that into their style.

So, yeah, I mean, I don’t know what the schedule is, I believe that Steve is working away, he said he found the script very challenging, but he thought it was a perfect ending, a perfect contemporary take on the Bojeffries, so that, I think people will enjoy that when it comes out, it’s very funny. It’s also got, they’ll never need to make a movie of the Bojeffries because one of the episodes in this twenty-four page story is coverage of the Bojeffries Movie, which shows a few shots, two scenes, a clip from the Bojeffries Movie, which starred, I think, Meryl Streep as Uncle Raoul, which is probably all you need to know.

It’s pretty good, it’s pretty good, and that’s just one part of this story. There’s a whole Big Brother part to it, and Ginda is a Blair’s Babe, Reth is a Booker Prize-winning author hanging out with Julie Burchill at the Groucho Club, and, yeah, what happened to Baby, and what happened to Jobremus, and what happened to Granddad. It’s pretty good. The entire family is broken up, by the way, when the story starts. They haven’t seen each other for years, which doesn’t sound like the most promising introduction, but it leads to a very, very good story, so I think that everyone’s going to enjoy that.

P; I always loved Bojeffries, I felt they were…

AM: One of my favourite strips, and fantastic to be working on it again. Writing the script it was like I’d written the last one a couple of months before. The characters were just immediately there, and I suspect that Steve is going to find some similar things when he’s drawing it.

James Morrison, Wednesday, 3 June 2009 04:52 (fifteen years ago) link

Never heard of this Bojeffries thing. Worth picking up? I'm kind of a non-comics fan who loves Moore in general.

I'd love to read the Bojeffries Saga, but apparently it's only been reprinted once, in 1992, so it's probably impossible to find (in Finland at least).

there's always the internet... oof, not that cheap though:

man saves ducklings from (ledge), Wednesday, 3 June 2009 08:53 (fifteen years ago) link

Several of them have been reprinted before, eg in Dalgoda (colourised though - but so was the Tundra version. Which stopped me from buying it). Why not just wait for the new edition?

Chaka Demus & Plies (sic), Wednesday, 3 June 2009 09:25 (fifteen years ago) link

Tuomas, Wednesday, 3 June 2009 11:08 (fifteen years ago) link

Top Shelf is going to get lots and lots of my money. This year it's Eddie Campbell's Alec: The Years Have pants, Jeff Lemire's Complete Essex County and Marshal Law by Mills and O'Neill. Next year is the two volume complete Bacchus and hopefully this Bojeffries collection.

EZ Snappin, Wednesday, 3 June 2009 12:08 (fifteen years ago) link

They're reprinting Marshal Law? Cool, I might want to get that.

Tuomas, Wednesday, 3 June 2009 12:09 (fifteen years ago) link

I thought Marshal Law was owned by Marvel though?

Tuomas, Wednesday, 3 June 2009 12:10 (fifteen years ago) link

Marshal Law was initially published through Epic, which gave Mills and O'Neill certain rights; that they were then able to take it to several other publishers - Apocalypse, Marvel again and Image all published further adventures - and that they own the copyright says much. They're probably paying a licensing fee to reprint it.

It's some funny stuff alright. Probably the funniest thing I've read from the Discliple of Glycon.

Been keeping this under my hat for a while but now it's official.. My first presenting spot for BBC6 Music is airing on Friday 4th Oct, 7pm - 9pm. It's an interview with Alan Moore, the planet's leading graphic novelist. Two hours of Alan's favourite music and some extraordinarily tall tales in the Iggy Pop slot. I first interviewed Alan more than three decades ago for Strange Things Are Happening magazine. I met him again a couple of years ago, and he remembered the interview and the psych records I was reissuing at the time with great fondness. I mentioned this on facebook, and the post was spotted a certain BBC6 Music presenter, who thought it would be a good idea for a show. So here we are. Many thanks Lauren, much appreciated! Turn on, tune in.. it's not often you hear The Residents on the radio! :)

A short story anthology next year, and a five-volume fantasy series starting 2024, that will move from the “shell-shocked and unravelled” London of 1949 to “a version of London just beyond our knowledge”, encompassing murder, magic and madness.

Speaking about his book deal, Moore said that he was at a moment in his career when he was “bursting with fiction, bursting with prose”.

“I couldn’t be happier with the new home that I’ve found at Bloomsbury: a near-legendary independent publisher with a spectacular list and a fierce commitment to expanding the empire of the word,” said Moore. “I have a feeling this will be a very productive partnership.”

Reading through his Swamp Thing run at the moment. Just got into Constantine and the American Gothic storyline. Some of these issues are so good, I don't know what to do with it. I expect it to go downhill eventually, but the highs of Rites of Spring (psychedelic yam sex) and Love and Death (first issue without comics code stamp) are amazing. I had a copy of Love and Death when I was 8 years old, rereading it now I'm amazed at how much went totally over my head.

There was certainly a period mid 80s to mid 90s when 'mature' comics were ridiculously wordy.

chap, Wednesday, 5 May 2021 14:55 (three years ago) link

yer Don McGregors and Claremonts in the '70s and early '80s had set the bar for turgidity in colour comics pretty high already. most of the people copying Moore were still slightly above that level of readability.

bobo honkin' slobo babe (sic), Wednesday, 5 May 2021 21:52 (three years ago) link

Pre-Moore Swamps was just as verbose but not nearly as good. I started from the beginning and when I got to the Moore years it was a quantum leap in quality. Just about every issue would refer to a “ MUCK ENCRUSTED MOCKERY OF A MAN!!!”

Cow_Art, Wednesday, 5 May 2021 22:27 (three years ago) link

Pretty sure the first time I read Moore's Swampy in my early teens I skimmed over most of the verbose captions and still enjoyed the story fine.

Yeah I hate this. I've read quite a few comics that did this kind of thing. Even Leiji Matsumoto's Esmeraldas does stuff like this.

I do sometimes get the impression that even a lot of the writers who grew up on comics back then and even loved them maybe didn't have the same level of personal investment and pride in what they written as is normal today. There's a certain laziness to a lot of that 70s stuff that makes me think they really didn't give a shit sometimes.

Robert Adam Gilmour, Thursday, 6 May 2021 17:35 (three years ago) link

They must've been working to pretty tight deadlines on several books, no?

chap, Thursday, 6 May 2021 17:37 (three years ago) link

Yeah and I'm sure most prolific mainstream comic writers get jobs they really don't want but I still think today there's probably a bit more will to try and make everything good.

In the even earlier days there were more people who just saw it as a job.

anyway, contains:

* Miracleman (1985) 1, 3, 6-16
* Marvelman Special (1984) 1
* Material from A1 (1989) 1
* All-New Miracleman Annual (2014) 1

the floppies i have are probably 1985 series, so what's the warrior stuff? and i know some of the 1985 was reprints for various reasons, but i didn't think it was 3 whole issues.

I got illuminations today: therein is What can we know of Thunderman, and if it is his umpteenth exercise wherein he renames characters so as to make whatever points he wishes…well, there can never be enough such exercises, for me at least.

This time, it's just prose, and this time, it's 100% a "fuck you, every one of you in this business has always sucked and shame on me for not saying so in the 80s and 90s" whereas 1963 and Supreme he was very much accessing his long ago affection for the source material. But this thing drips with disdain for the fans turned pro that he made seem so pitifully parochial 40 years ago (he is brutal in belittling every single thing about them), like the affable al columns from 1963 but coming out of 15 years in which he believes (and so do I) that super hero content has had a hideously bad effect on culture worldwide. It's almost as if he now thinks that all the naysayers, from Wertham down to the teachers saying "you should read real literature" to the bullies who laughed at nerds clutching their precious comics featuring kiddie characters, calling them stupid and immature, were right.

I'm only 30 pages in, but can only put it down to write these words. Everyone who used to frequent ILC during its most active time in 2006-2008 should pick this up post haste.

Did you like In Pictopia, 1963, or Supreme, jimbeaux?

Vance Vance Devolution (sic), Wednesday, 19 October 2022 01:37 (one year ago) link

To be perfectly honest, I haven't read any Alan Moore since about 1991. I was reacting to veronica moser's description of Moore's latest book, which sounds from that summary like a miserable exercise.

I did like Warren Ellis's reworking of "Supreme," and admired much of Ellis's work before he was revealed to be a very problematic person.

There is an omnibus collection of "Miracleman" coming soon that looks to be worth the investment.

I am re-reading my checker trades of the Supreme run; I know that they are widely disliked, lousy reproduction, liefeld licensed the material to the Checker goofballs so that they could establish their company, which they did not succeed in doing, but they are fine for me, as I wasn't fuckin' with comics in the late 90s and didn't know about this shit until 2003 when the trades were published…

and yet I have a recollection seeing a Professor Night solo story, not the one with Supreme in which he and Prof (and Dax and Jack a Dandy) switch M.O.s… this would be a solo Prof Night/Twilight story, drawn by Veitch obviously in the style of Bill Finger/Dick Sprang… I cannot find any citation to this story in any references, particularly my copy of Khoury's extraordinary works of Alan moore reference…anyone know about this? did I dream this? and was there any other Supreme/Weisinger era pastiche material that was published during the Image/Maximum/Awesome run that didn't make it into the Checker trades?
