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

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
