Portrait of the day, pretty much how I imagined him edition

Alan Moore, by Frank Quitely.


  1. Here’s a pretty reasonable photo of him, which looks a lot like this portrait is based on it:

    Or, for the pure art fan, a picture of that rare beast, Alan Moore’s chin, aged 18:

  3. Zombie or Lich? Too smart for a zombie I think.

  4. There’s also a photo of him, as an illustration, in the book The Voice in The Fire.

  5. Of course, it’s when he talks that you get the biggest surprise. He LOOKS for all the world like a modern-day Gandalf, and you’d think that’s how he’d sound, rumbly and erudite. But when he speaks it’s all Barry from Auf Wiedersehen, Pet.

    His reading from Rorschach’s Diary (available on You Tube) cannot be un-heard.

  6. Check out his wikipedia site: – esp. the man-jewellery in the second photo half way down the page… Awesome.

  7. Conor – five quid says he ordered it out of the Alchemy Gothic catalogue.

  8. For added awesomness, check out Neil Gaiman’s photos from Alan Moore and Melinda Gebbie’s wedding from 2007.

    (Yes, that Neil Gaiman).

  9. Someday, I too will be so cool that Neil Gaiman will come to my wedding.
