Comic legend keeps true to roots
By Nic Rigby -BBC News, Northampton- Friday, 21 March 2008, 10:30 GMT
Comic book writer Alan Moore is revered across the world as being one of the most creative forces in the industry. Books such as Watchmen, From Hell, League of Extraordinary Gentleman and V for Vendetta show that some comic books must be placed on the high table of literature. But despite his fame, Moore still lives in his home town of Northampton, in a three-bedroom mid-terrace home similar to the one he grew up in.

Thanks for that, Mr. Campbell. Nice to know that a genius is a humble fellow.

It's a four pager in After the Snooter

If you're picking it up for Alan's appearance he reappears in other places in the book, and interspersed throughout there are ruminations on From Hell in which i draw scenes turning out differently from the way the did originally, or imagining actors in the parts etc. Nobody has counted before, but there are 30 new From Hell panels in the Snooter book.

anonymous, After the Snooter also has special bonus panels of Eddie Campbell's hairy arse!



(I have seen him use hairy arses as a selling point at conventions when it concerns Neil Gaiman's botty, but never his own. It works rather well, in case you were wondering.)

(Alan Moore's hairy bottom doesn't appear in After the Snooter, but I'm sure it's there if you squint at the trousers for long enough.)
