Actually the Glycon livejournal seems to be the place to go for for explanations as to what all of these images are.

These are great, thanks. Anyone know if the actual Fashion Beast screenplay ever make it to the internets?

Also: a preview of the new League of Extraordinary Gentlemen book that I meant to post ages ago but forgot about.

Curious that Moore omits the Dukes of Hazzard Annual 1983 from his bibliography.

Alan Moore knows the score.

Oh, PWEI, gone from this word so that we might have music for trailers.

No Flickr from work, but looking forward to this when I get home.

Must be out there somewhere. I bought a Kinko's-bound one* at a comics show a few years ago -- I guess it could be an elaborate fake, but I kinda doubt it (if it is, I am very impressed).

*No, I am not scanning it. No scanner, legal issues aside. Sorry.

I'm guessing anyone who's read Big Numbers 1&2 would be very interested in this.

Those who like obscure Alan Moore material will probably enjoy this 1986 interview by Neil Gaiman.

Thanks for the Big Numbers #3 scans, Artw. Here's the alleged script. Eddie Campbell: "...I always felt a certain resentment that Billy the Sink got Big Numbers and blew it while i was stuck drawing Jack the bloody Ripper for ten years... "

"...(I once described it as a penny dreadful that costs thirty five bucks). I stand by my opinion that Big Numbers was the superior idea and would have been Alan's masterpiece."

Heh.

Of course From Hell is my outright favourite thing Moore has ever done and I consider it his materpeice. Until he does something better.

For someone who's retired he has a lot coming out in 2009.
