|This collection of old interviews with Alan Moore has been great fun to flick through. The very earliest one, I’d never actually heard about. There’s a few early ones that are sadly omitted while arguably being richer pieces (the ARKENSWORD interviews, for instance, or the Eddie Campbell dialogue in ESCAPE), but the selection generally feels strong. And I’m particularly enjoying finding herein interviews that I haven’t read before.
I’d recommend this book to anyone with more than a passing interest in Moore’s work over the years, because it does quite wonderfully illustrate the evolution and mutation of the thinking behind the work over… christ, thirty years or so. It’s a nice bit of curation by Eric Berlatsky, and a joy to read.
