There's a great interview with noted comic book author Alan Moore over at the NYT. Definitely worth checking out.
Despite the radical change in format, the “Unearthing” project is no less significant to Alan Moore, a prolific (and prodigiously bearded) 56-year-old resident of Northampton, England. To him it is a tribute to a colleague and mentor, and a demonstration that he has transcended the boundaries of the graphic novels for which he is best known.
“After all those years of working within the comics industry and quietly going mad, this is what erupts,” Mr. Moore said in a telephone interview.
