    Oh god. Neil Gaiman writing about Alan Moore...

    In comic form.

    If you haven't seen this, it's so awesome. So very, very awesome.

    First you compliment me, then you take it back by saying you're joking. What cruelty!

    Admittedly, I have no idea what's going on here, but that's still a great comic :P

    I agree with Varan. I barely know who Alan Moore is or what this comic has to do with him.

    Alan Moore wrote most notably V for Vendetta and Watchmen. He's also extremely eccentric.

    Also League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, which can be summed up as British Pulp. And the exact opposite of the movie.

    Ahhh, I see! V for Vendetta is one of my favorite movies, definitely in my top 5. This explains the excellent writing style.

    She's from Higurashi.

    If that isn't explanation enough as to why she's scary, it's probably just as well. :)

    Yeah, the comic. Which is much better.

    It's awesome, he made them take his name off the credits for the movie because he considered the script to be trash.

    He's so awesome.



    He also wrote Promethea, and lots of other comics. He's pretty fucking awesome. (Read Watchmen right fucking now if you haven't. NOW.)
