Give it up for Glycon.

Good interview with Alan Moore by Susanna Clarke in the Telegraph today here. Mostly on Lost Girls but bits and pieces on Watchmen and V For Vendetta
Ending with some wry observations on:
LIFE 'It's a horrifying, romantic, tragic, comical, science-fiction cowboy detective novel. You know, with a bit of pornography, if you're lucky.'

HOLLYWOOD FILMS 'If I write a crappy comic book, it doesn't cost the budget of an emergent Third World nation.'

LOVE 'I'd recommend to anybody working on their relationship that they should try embarking on a 16-year elaborate pornography [project] together. I think they'll find it works wonders.'

Cool interview with Moore! I think I'll start worshipping Glycon, it seems as good as any other god, eh?My boyfriend picked up Lost Girls last year just before it was banned in Canada. The ban was lifted a couple of months later. I haven't read it yet, the collection of books was pretty expensive and I'm terrified that I'll put a smudge on it or something!
I don't know how some people can read a comic and make nary a crease. If I even look at one, the condition can go from mint to "toilet tanker"! That's why I either buy ones that are already kind of toasted or I get trade paperbacks - then I get a chunk of story in one fell swoop and I don't have to fret about trashing a 9.5 worth $50.00...
You haven't brought up the writing at all, how is it going?
