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.
Page 3 of The Animist (working title).
What is happening on this page?
The lead character, Reid Brennan, is recounting his troubles with the local community college, which has recently become a part of the university system. His problems are not with the university, though. Apparently, there was a big shakeup when his colleague, Boz Miller, attempted to murder another professor (Dr. Trent Wertham) over some kind of dispute. Now unemployed, while watching his favorite physics program on television, Reid laments the lax role that he played in that dispute… even though the part that he played represents no actual guilt, he still thinks that he could have prevented the whole ordeal had he been a better friend and been a better listener (which becomes clearer on page 4). Here on this page we see the camera roll back to show planet earth and the sun, in outer space as Reid recalls the last year. Then it pulls back even further and we see that Reid is watching the earth and the sun on television. When Reid emerges fully into the fourth panel, he reveals that the focus of his anger is himself. His back remains turned to the “camera”, to further emphasize his sense of isolation and guilt.
Dinosaur comics presents a choose your own adventure, sorta. And it is hilarious, as usual, Grand Theft Zoosmell.
A blast from the past. Here’s one of my favorites from “A Lesson Is Learned But The Damage Is Irreversible” Be sure to look through their archives at their other strips.
I like this particular strip because it captures the essence of psychotherapy, paranoia, fear of intimacy and being in a relationship, and dream logic combined with wish fulfillment. Theres a lot to absorb all at once

Strip by Michael Kupperman, the amazing creator of Snake n’ Bacon, and Tales Designed to Thrizzle
From Michael Kupperman’s Tales Designed To Thrizzle.
This particular strip gets even crazier shortly after this. You should buy it to see the rest. (HOT TIP, click the pic to see the rest… then go to Amazon to buy the collected Tales Designed to Thrizzle Vol 1.)
This a comic strip by Michael Kupperman. Michael is a comedic genius, however, this particular strip was rejected by the New Yorker. It probably was because their particular demographic would have been horrified at the subject matter, and also would have had no particularly noticeable sense of humor.
