I like Alan Moore's work. I can't say as I quite love it. There's something a little Victorian curiosity case about it. He likes magic & mysticism. He has allowed eroticism into his mainstream comics writing in a way that feels adult rather than adolescent. He's always detailed and his work well crafted. A bit cluttered. A bit high strung. Kind of chilly.
As an Ozzy I'll have to say I'm feeling more trepidation than anticipation over Moore's forthcoming Lost Girls. Says the publisher, "For more than a century, Alice, Wendy and Dorothy have been our guides through the Wonderland, Neverland and Land of Oz of our childhoods. Now like us, these three lost girls have grown up and are ready to guide us again, this time through the realms of our sexual awakening and fulfillment."
