COMICS

Sounds Magazine
Alan Moore worked for the UK music paper Sounds from March 31st 1979 to March 19th 1983 doing a weekly comic strip. None of these have ever been collected, and most Moore fans have never had a chance to see them…until now.

Also worth noting these strips do contain the occasional boob or cussword, so if you are offended by boobs and cussing, you have been warned.

Promethea #32

This was originally posted on the Yahoo Groups Alan Moore Message Board http://groups.yahoo.com/group/alanmoore/ By Jose Villarrubia and is reposted here with his permission (thanks Jose).

“I just got off the phone with Alan and he gave me some advice on how to read
Promethea 32 that I would like to share with you:

First read the Promethea dialog only in all the pages in the order that they are printed. When the pages are upside-down, just rotate the page and read the dialog (monologue, really), left page first and then right and left side of the page to the right and top to bottom.

After you are done, go back to the start and read the additional captions on each page in the same order you read the dialog...

Then, take off the staples, and be careful with the bits of glue that hold the pages together. Tape all the pages in the correct order, two new giant pictures will appear and read each one of the sides again, this item in a slightly different order from the first that according to Alan will make even more sense... there are also paths of stars and ankhs connecting the captions that define yet another sequencing...

Alan told me that he likes to make his readers work... no kidding”.

Jose Villarrubia


We are also posting the two lager images the book makes once disassembled, they are too small to read but large enough to see the images they form.

Marvelman Special

“Saturday Morning Pictures”: was published by Quality Communications in 1984 and was mainly a reprint of earlier (1960’s) Marvelman comics. Linking the reprints together was a framing sequence (presented here) by Alan Moore and Alan Davis, tying the story into modern Miracleman comics. This story fits into continuity after Miracleman #3 and tells the tale of two cleaners sent to the Zarathustra Bunker after Miracleman’s visit.

Daredevils #8 (Moore Parodies Frank Miller)

In the UK magazine The Daredevils #8 Alan Moore wrote a 4 page story called “Grit!”, in it he parodies Frank Millers Daredevil with art by Mike Collins & Mark Farmer. Could it get any better than Moore riffing on Miller, I don’t think so.

Fashion Beast Screenplay
Excerpt
The only screenplay Alan Moore ever wrote but the movie was never made. We have retyped it to make it more monitor friendly (readable), but due to limitations in html formatting we were not able to exactly duplicate Alan Moore’s original formatting. Also the copy of the script we have was missing a word from time to time on the right hand margin of the page. Rather than guess at what the word might be we have just left it omitted, it sucks I know but thankfully it doesn’t happen that often.

League of Extraordinary Gentlemen

These two character model sheets done for the first League of Extraordinary Gentlemen mini series were supposedly done by artist Adam Hughes. I can not attest they are genuine, but they are very well done, and offer a glimpse of a League that might have been.
