Last Alan Moore Interview? - Comics god Alan Moore has issued a comprehensive sign-off from public life after shooting down accusations that his stories feature racist characters and an excessive amount of sexual violence towards women. He also used a lengthy recent interview with Pádraig Ó Méalóid at Slovobooks to expand upon his belief that today's adults' interest in superheroes is potentially "culturally catastrophic", a view originally aired in the Guardian last year.
Alan #Moore - Saga of the Swamp Thing Vol. 1 - The issues collected here were groundbreaking not just for Moore but for comics as a whole. Swamp Thing was reportedly the first series that abandoned the Comics Code and composed solely for adults, and Moore’s issues created characters like John Constantine and crossover successes like Hellblazer and The Sandman.
