Alan Moore and Chums

Halloween is awesome. I was going to spend the day watching horror movies and searching Instagram for pictures of college girls playing beer pong while dressed as Boltie or Slutty Richard Harrow, but instead, here’s a treat.

I was looking through one of my many back issues of the superb Fortean Times, and came upon this wonderful and terrifying thing in the March 1995 letters page. Yes, that’s Alan Moore. The Alan Moore. With a ghost.  Click for bigger.

Letters of Note? Pfft. As far as I can find, this picture (and letter) didn’t exist online until I stuck it up right now, so maybe this is a new avenue for me. Although, if any celebrities do happen to snap off a picture with a ghost, maybe they could kill two Halloween birds with one stone and get caught with a spectral cheerleader, or a Slave Leia that drove off a bridge on the way back from a frat party.

  3. I dunno… there’s all sorts of weird shit right there. Dem strings connecting a poodle or something…

  4. [...] Moore had previously recorded “March of the Sinister Ducks” and other works with David J of Bauhaus and Love and Rockets (the band, not the comic). Speaking of whom, Moore once wrote a letter to Fortean Times about one of his performances with J, which has been reproduced online. [...]
