Moore from The Underground

In a recent post we looked at a 4 page underground strip written and illustrated by Alan Moore (as Kurt Vile) for Sounds music paper in 1982.

In this follow up feature I'd like to share a couple more Moore strips.

Firstly another Vile 'Axel Pressbutton' strip, this time from Warrior magazine.

People Like Us Shop At...


On a recent clear-out I happened to discover these old plastic bags from Forbidden Planet & Comics Showcase that had been stashed amongst my collection since the early 80ies.

Battle Of The Eyes "Corpsemeat 2"



The original Corpsemeat Comix was a b/w photocopied zine produced by Savage Pencil, under the 'Sexy Swastika' banner in 1983 (reprinted 1991).



It's follow up "Corpsemeat 2" is something of an un-holy grail amongst underground comix collectors. For a start there are 2 distinct versions of Corpsemeat 2 the A4 ish b/w version produced by Long Gone John's Sympathetic Press and a full colour screen printed version printed in France by L'A.P.A.A.R.

Alan Moore: Underground Cartoonist.


You probably know him best as one of the most lauded writers in the field but Alan Moore is also a talented underground cartoonist.

Scan stolen from Philip Sandifer
One of his most famous works as an illustrator, working under the pseudonym 'Curt Vile,'was "The Stars My Degradation" a weekly strip which ran in Sounds music paper in the early 80ies & scripted by Moore's pal Steve Moore (no relation), working under the pseudonym 'Pedro Henry'.


At a 2000ad signing session (probably this one from 1983) I was lucky enough to get Moore to sign this 4 page special, and even have him to sketch Axel Pressbutton for me on a blank playing card he was surprised that anyone would want him to do a sketch but graciously obliged
(see above).

Savage Pencil X Stussy

One of the highlights for me at Savage Pencil's 'Freek Meet' opening, at Into You Tattoo, was the chance to finally get hold of one of these awesome, and long sold out, t- shirts.

Back in the summer of 2009 Savage Pencil teamed up with Stussy to create a couple of designs.





Stussy have a long tradition of collaboration with artists but with "Super Fly" Savage Pencil decided to push the envelope...

Tronics at Safari

Yesterday afternoon I visited the first Breakdown Press Safari Comics Festival.



While making this sketch of "Boy Crazy Boy" comics creator Sina Sparrow I was surprised to hear the DJ playing "TV On In Bed" by futurist punks The Tronics.
I was surprised because:
1, I've never heard The Tronics played out by a DJ, and...
2, many years ago I played in a later incarnation of this group then know as The Zarjaz.





The DJ explained that it seemed to him like an appropriate choice for an indie comics event, 
he had no idea how appropriate.
