Alan Moore stuff I haven't read

Post by Lucy McGough on Sat Feb 15, 2014 9:25 am

Anyone here read From Hell or Promethea? Are they any good?

I think that Promethea would be a good name for a guinea pig.

From Hell is excellent, I think, though not exactly guaranteed to lift your spirits. Umm, why a Guinea pig?

I read Promethea, and it's swell. I haven't read From Hell, but I saw the movie, and that was pretty good.

Yeah, but if it's a movie Alan Moore'll hate it, right?

If you think Promethea is worth it I'll put it on my 'to do' list.

If it's by Alan, it's worth it.

I started Promethea, but haven't finished it. Too busy. Good, though. But, From Hell is a masterwork. Fascinating story about violence and the effects on society, better literary techniques than Watchmen, and maybe his best work.

Alan Moore may worship Glycon, but I reckon you worship Alan Moore  Razz

High praise indeed! I'll definitely read it.

I'm sorry, but that beard is scary . . . like an evil forbidden forest or something!  Shocked

He's not scary. He's just a wizard from Northampton who worships a snake god.
