Alan Moore Brightness

I’ve been on an Alan Moore binge recently and I’ve been getting into his rough cuts – and that term is going to bother a lot of people because when I say rough cuts, I mean his non-DC Comics stuff. If you bring Moore up to the average non-comics reader he is the Watchmen guy or the Swamp Thing guy or sometimes the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen guy. And then they usually make a comment about him being angry, especially about Watchmen or the movies and that is why I am here to say Alan Moore is a fun guy. I am here to remind you that a guy who is famous about shooting Barbara Gordon, for having brutally real characters – he is a hilarious guy.
