Alan Moore Spells It Out

    (Airwave, 2005)
™ and © 2005 William S. Baker

Not a comic book, but a marathon interview with one of the great figures in comics, Alan Moore Spells It Out is a walk inside the titular creator’s head, courtesy of journalist Bill Baker. The topics circle around the act of creation—mostly comics, but also prose, poetry, performance art and… perhaps the sum of all of these, magic. Moore recast himself as a magician some time ago, and asserts that the difference between spelling words and spelling magic is a minimal one at its widest, almost certainly the same in origin, and definitely the same in intent (changing the audience’s consciousness). It’s a fascinating read that despite the hours of tape it occupies, feels like just barely enough to sate a hungry appetite.
