Publicité

Alan Moore, né le 18 novembre 1953 à Northampton, est un scénariste de bande dessinée et écrivain britannique dont les œuvres les plus connues sont les comics Watchmen, V pour Vendetta et From Hell.

Moore commence sa carrière au Royaume-Uni avant de travailler pour des éditeurs américains. Célèbre pour avoir rendu dans les années 1980 les comics plus matures et plus littéraires, il a également beaucoup apporté à la forme du médium, par des effets de mise en page inédits jusqu'alors. Ses influences, très diverses, comptent des auteurs comme William S. Burroughs, Thomas Pynchon, Robert Mayer et Iain Sinclair, des écrivains de science-fiction comme Michael Moorcock et d'horreur comme H.P. Lovecraft, Clive Barker, des cinéastes comme Nicolas Roeg. En bande dessinée, l'influence de Bryan Talbot, précurseur de la bande dessinée « adulte » avec The Adventures of Luther Arkwright, a été déterminante.

Végétarien et connu pour ses opinions anarchistes, il se présente par ailleurs comme un magicien et un adorateur de Glycon, une divinité-serpent romaine.

„Stories are at the absolute center of human existence.“

— Alan Moore
Context: Stories are at the absolute center of human existence. Sometimes to disastrous effect; if you think about how various ancient religious stories — that may have been intended at the time as no more than fables — have led to so many devastating wars up to and including the present day. Obviously there are some occasions when the fictions that we base our lives upon lead us into some terrifying territory.

„I don’t believe that a violent revolution is ever going to work, simply on the grounds that it never has in the past.“

— Alan Moore
Context: I don’t believe that a violent revolution is ever going to work, simply on the grounds that it never has in the past. I mean, speaking as a resident of Northampton, during the English civil war we backed Cromwell — we provided all the boots for his army — and we were a center of antiroyalist sentiment. Incidentally, we provided all the boots to the Confederates as well, so obviously we know how to pick a winner. Cromwell’s revolution? I guess it succeeded. The king was beheaded, which was quite early in the day for beheading; amongst the European monarchy, I think we can claim to have kicked off that trend. But give it another ten years; as it turned out, Cromwell himself was a monster. He was every bit the monster that Charles I had been. In some ways he was worse.

„Admittedly, I do have several bones... whole war fields full of bones, in fact... to pick with organised religion of whatever stripe.“

— Alan Moore
Context: Admittedly, I do have several bones... whole war fields full of bones, in fact... to pick with organised religion of whatever stripe. This should be seen as a critique of purely temporal agencies who have, to my mind, erected more obstacles between whatever notion of spirituality and Godhead one subscribes to than they have opened doors. To me, the difference between Godhead and the Church is the difference between Elvis and Colonel Parker... although that conjures images of God dying on the toilet, which is not what I meant at all. In "Correspondence: From Hell" by Alan Moore & Dave Sim, conclusion, Cerebus #220 (2003)
