Paradynamo

The whirling dynamo of creativity is AT LARGE, ONCE AGAIN! Stand aside, ye wastrels of the digital ocean. Behold! Information moves in strange ways, indeed. Brett Wood, indy comic creator, spills the beans about "who dares go there," and "what," pray tell, "is going on?"

This book will be the best thing to happen in comics in the last 5 years.

Have your mind expanded and blown by Alan Moore, writer, magician, illuminated showman and creator of watchmen, V for Vendetta and the league of extraordinary gentlemen…

The Mindscape of Alan Moore is a 2003 feature documentary which chronicles the life and work of Alan Moore.

Alan Moore presents the story of his development as an artist, starting with his childhood and working through to his comics career and impact on that medium, and his emerging interest in magic.

This is Folly: The Consequences of Indescretion by Hans Rickheit, published by fantagraphics. I followed many of these strips online, as they were being produced. I even commissioned one of the strips myself (it happens to be the one used on the cover).

Get to know the surreal, disturbing, yet addicting world of Hans Rickheit. You won’t be sorry. If you want a huge sampling of his work, go to http://chromefetus.com/page1.html

Said this many times. Banal and horrifying. Glad Alan Moore agrees. At least we’ve got a wizard on our side.
