Alan Moore is an English writer most famous for his influential work in comics, including the acclaimed graphic novels Watchmen and V For Vendetta.
As a comics writer, Moore is notable for being one of the first writers to apply literary and formalist sensibilities to the mainstream of the medium as well as including challenging subject matter and adult themes.
Moore is also a practicing magician who worships a Roman snake deity named Glycon which he acknowledges to be a "complete hoax". He describes his understanding of magick as fundamentally synonymous with art (the use of words, images, and actions to affect people and the way they think).
In this three part interview from 2007, Alex Fitch finds out Moore's opinions of magick, movies, comic books, and just what giant bald men in nappies had to do with American paranoia in 1950s movies. (Resonance FM audio stream part 1, part 2 & part 3).
