Magician, writer, cultural icon…Alan Moore has done it all.
Alan Moore started producing work in the late 70’s, around the time I was born, so it figures that he would have an impact on my life down the road. I was personally introduced to the worlds of Mr. Moore completely by accident when I found a beat up issue of the original Watchmen run in a back issue bin circa 1989. I eventually found a trade paperback of the book and my initial comic book education truly. I had studied the works of Kirby, Moore, Morrison, and Miller. It was a great way to get into comics other than my love of Spider-Man and Superman and took me deeper down the rabbit hole of the comic book multiverse of ideas. It really is a terrific medium.
In my opinion, he’s also one of the world’s most prominent practicing magick users. He speaks on his magick use more than most and his ideas are intriguing.
