Alan Moore, on Lost Girls:
“Ah, Lost Girls. Can you imagine anyone else being able to get a wonderfully accomplished artist to spend thirteen years drawing pornographic material for them, customised to demand; being able to declare himself a pornographer and have everyone take it as some bold new intellectual position; or even claiming against tax for high class scud-books like The Art of the Marquis Von Bayros as “reference material”? No. You can’t. This is why I am a genius. “What are you doing in that bathroom, young man?” “Mother, I am doing highly paid reference work.”
One of the things that has made Lost Girls work is that we realised fairly early on that there probably wasn’t a sexual act, no matter how seemingly perverse or even grotesque it might sound from a brief description, that couldn’t be made beautiful with enough layered crayon effects. ”
The second issue of Eddie Campbell’s Egomania can be ordered now from Diamond Comics Distributors, Cold Cut and Top Shelf Productions.
I mention it here because most of its 48 page length is going to be an interview with Alan Moore. I am so there…
