Алан Мур — английский писатель, известный, прежде всего, работой в комиксах. Создал ряд произведений, положительно отмеченных критиками. Среди них: «Хранители» , «V — значит Вендетта» , «Из Ада» . Также работал под псевдонимами: Курт Вайл , Венус Лундж , Джилл де Рей , Шерлок Блу и Трэнслусия Бабун . Его часто называют лучшим создателем комиксов в истории, также иногда «одним из самых значительных британских писателей последних пятидесяти лет».

Мур начал писать для британских андерграундных и альтернативных журналов в конце 1970-х. Первые его удачные публикации появились в таких журналах как «2000AD» и «Warrior». Впоследствии его пригласили в американское издательство DC Comics, и он стал «первым автором комиксов, живущим в Великобритании и работающим в Америке». Он работал над некоторыми известными персонажами, такими как Бэтмен , Супермен и Болотная Тварь . Во время работы в DC Comics, Мур написал «Хранителей» , «Убийственную Шутку» и «Что случилось c Человеком Завтрашнего дня?» . В течение этого десятилетия Мур стал одним из тех авторов комиксов, которые помогли изменить отношение к жанру в Соединенных Штатах и Соединенном Королевстве. Впоследствии ему была приписана заслуга в разделении терминов «графический роман» и «комикс».

В конце 1980-х начале 1990-х он покинул индустрию комиксов и временно стал «свободным художником». В эти годы он работал над экспериментальными произведениями, такими как эпопея «Из Ада» , порнографические «Потерянные Девочки» и классический текстовый роман, «Голос Огня» .

В конце 1990-х Мур вернулся в мир больших комиксов. Работал на Image Comics, а затем возглавил издательство America’s Best Comics, в котором издавал свои работы «Лига выдающихся джентльменов» и основанный на оккультизме «Прометэа» .

Алан Мур также известен своими необычными взглядами. Он практикует магию и оккультизм, примеры которого можно видеть в работах «Прометэа» и «Из Ада» . Так же он выпустил оккультную аудиокнигу «Великий египетский театр Чудес Луны и Змеи» .

Несмотря на личное несогласие Мура, многие из его произведений экранизированы Голливудом: «Из Ада» , «Лига выдающихся джентльменов» , «V значит Вендетта» и «Хранители» .

Нельзя не отметить влияние Мура на многих деятелей культуры и искусства, среди которых Нил Гейман , Джозеф Хилл «Джосс» Уидон и Дэймон Линделоф .

Цитаты Алан Мур

„В середине восьмидесятых одна американская компания пыталась заказать мне книгу комиксов о самых темных местах в истории ЦРУ — с конца второй мировой до сегодняшнего дня. Там должны были быть такие вещи, как контрабанда героина во время Вьетнамской войны, контрабанда кокаина во время волнений в Латинской Америке, убийство Кеннеди и прочие эпизоды. Исследуя все это, я вынес для себя одно: последователи разных теорий заговора верят в них только потому, что так более комфортно. Правда же заключается в том, что мир — это абсолютный неконтролируемый хаос. Нет ни иллюминатов, ни еврейского банковского сговора, ни серых пришельцев — правда куда страшнее. Миром не управляет никто, и он валится куда-то, лишенный контроля.“

„Politics sometimes sells itself as having an ethical dimension, as if there was good politics and bad politics. As far as I understand it, the word actually has the same root as the word polite. It is the art of conveying information in a politic way, in a way that will be discrete and diplomatic and will offend the least people.“

— Alan Moore
Context: As to how politics relate to the storytelling process, I’d say that it’s probably in the same way that politics relate to everything. I mean, as the old feminist maxim used to go, “the personal is the political.” We don’t really live in an existence where the different aspects of our society are compartmentalized in the way that they are in bookshops. In a bookshop, you’ll have a section that is about history, that is about politics, that is about the contemporary living, or the environment, or modern thinking, modern attitudes. All of these things are political. All of these things are not compartmentalized; they’re all mixed up together. And I think that inevitably there is going to be a political element in everything that we do or don’t do. In everything we believe, or do not believe. I mean, in terms of politics I think that it’s important to remember what the word actually means. Politics sometimes sells itself as having an ethical dimension, as if there was good politics and bad politics. As far as I understand it, the word actually has the same root as the word polite. It is the art of conveying information in a politic way, in a way that will be discrete and diplomatic and will offend the least people. And basically we’re talking about spin. Rather than being purely a late 20th, early 21st century term, it’s obvious that politics have always been nothing but spin. But, that said, it is the system which is interwoven with our everyday lives, so every aspect our lives is bound to have a political element, including writing fiction.

„Things tend to organise themselves. If there is any message from contemporary science, it is surely that.“

— Alan Moore
Context: Things tend to organise themselves. If there is any message from contemporary science, it is surely that. I am very fond of the anarchist proverb regarding laws – good people have no need for them, bad people pay no attention to them, what are they there for, other than as a symbol of power – ‘We can say this is law’. I could say I rule the universe, it depends on whether anyone believes me or not. To some degree, I don’t think the authorities care whether the law is observed or not, as long as it is there, and everyone accepts the idea of law. As long as they buy into the idea of law.

„The main thing that I learned about conspiracy theory is that conspiracy theorists actually believe in a conspiracy because that is more comforting. The truth of the world is that it is chaotic.“

— Alan Moore
Context: The main thing that I learned about conspiracy theory is that conspiracy theorists actually believe in a conspiracy because that is more comforting. The truth of the world is that it is chaotic. The truth is, that it is not the Jewish banking conspiracy or the grey aliens or the 12 foot reptiloids from another dimension that are in control. The truth is more frightening, nobody is in control. The world is rudderless. "The Mindscape of Alan Moore" (2003)

„I have a more fractal way of working“

— Alan Moore
Context: I have a more fractal way of working, if you like, it is more like the way most people’s minds actually work. They don’t work in any linear way. When your mind wanders if you ever pay attention to some of the paths it takes, you generally find it’s these paths of association that can link all over the place. …The movements of the mind don’t follow any linear pattern, they can’t be explained with a mechanistic, clockwork view. You could find quantum models of how the mind works that might fit.

„Unless you’re talking about some incredibly rigid Victorian family, there is nobody that could be said to be the leader of the family; everybody has their own function. And it seems to me that anarchy is the state that most naturally obtains when you’re talking about ordinary human beings living their lives in a natural way.“

Context: Unless you’re talking about some incredibly rigid Victorian family, there is nobody that could be said to be the leader of the family; everybody has their own function. And it seems to me that anarchy is the state that most naturally obtains when you’re talking about ordinary human beings living their lives in a natural way. It’s only when you get these fairly alien structures of order that are represented by our major political schools of thought, that you start to get these terrible problems arising—problems regarding our status within the hierarchy, the uncertainties and insecurities that are the result of that. You get these jealousies, these power struggles, which by and large, don’t really afflict the rest of the animal kingdom. It seems to me that the idea of leaders is an unnatural one that was probably thought up by a leader at some point in antiquity; leaders have been brutally enforcing that idea ever since, to the point where most people cannot conceive of an alternative.

„I see magic as a vantage point from which one can look down on the rest of consciousness.“

— Alan Moore
Context: The traditional definition of magic – and I think this comes from Crowley who laid down a lot of the ground rules – he defined magic as bringing about change in accordance with the will. I’m not sure about that. It’s certainly part of it, but to bring about change in the universe in accordance with your will seems to me to be misunderstanding the relationship between the individual and the universe. In my relationship with the universe, I do tend to see myself as very much the Junior Partner. I don’t want to impose my will on the universe, I’d rather the universe imposed its will on me. I would rather that what I wanted was more in tune with what the universe wanted. So my definition of magic is a bit less invasive and intrusive. … It’s more exploratory with me. I see magic as a vantage point from which one can look down on the rest of consciousness. It’s a point outside normal consciousness from which you can look at normal consciousness, it’s a point outside beliefs from which you can look at beliefs. All beliefs are reality tunnels, to use Anton Wilson’s phrase. There is the Communist reality tunnel, the Feminist reality tunnel, all of which seem to be the whole of reality when you are in the middle of them. The whole universe is based on Marxist theory if you’re an intent Marxist. Magic is having a plan of all the tunnels, and seeing the overall condition in which they all work. Being aware of different possibilities.
