a Yankee in London' blog takes the From Hell chapter four tour of London. That's the episode where William Gull explained, while moving through the Victorian capital by horse and coach, all the mythical and mystical points on the map that are relevant to his wicked masterplan. I was enjoying it until the blogger, Jason, photographed his big greasy English breakfast. The horror, ugh, the horror!

Smoky man has a great Alan Moore story, and a great photo courtesy of Norman Adams to go with it.

'Alan Moore defends rational thought' in a piece of street oratory outside Abington park Museum. "The protest, organised by Northampton Socialist Forum, came after an information sign about Darwinism at the museum was partially covered following a complaint by what appears to be a Christian fundamentalist."
The Northampton Chronicle has the museum story:
Museum in censorship row over Darwin sign
"Censorship of an exhibition on evolution at a Northampton museum has led to claims organisers are pandering to Christian fundamentalist sensibilities..."

Mr. Moore: always the dapper gent.

It's a long, long time since I've had a fry-up like that. Every now and then my stomach feels nostalgic. Trouble is that my diet is so meat- and fat-free these days that even fish 'n' chips can make me feel queasy afterwards. So much for being a Blackpool kid.

Wow! Thanks for the link! Sorry about the breakfast, my American side still craves giant plates of grease every now and then and I find the cafes more than happy to oblige.

Seriously, this link made my day. I met you at Comic-Con once a few years ago and I still tell people about how nice you were. I regret not buying a page from From Hell then (not enough money at the time) but I did want to say how much I really like your work. Like I said in my post, your art captures London in my mind perfectly - it is the 'ideal' London if you will. Thank you!!!

Cool; English Soul Food! And I thought Huevos Rancheros was a ghastly breakfast! (I'm Latina.) Bless that dapper Allan Moore, someone has to stand up for rational thought! Namaste- Yoga Gal -Geri
