Alan Moore is a writer perhaps best known for the groundbreaking comic Watchmen. Other notable works include his novel Voice of the Fire and comics such as V for Vendetta, From Hell, and League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.
Moore is also a practicing magician, of the occult variety. Although he was always interested in the occult from a theoretical perspective it wasn’t until he wrote From Hell that he became interested in it as a practice rather than an academic concern.
Moore has also provided vocals for musical projects with David J from Bauhaus and written and performed occult performance art works.
In 2009 he founded the print magazine Dodgem Logic, which he edits.
