Alan Moore and Tripwire 21st anniversary

Cover of Tripwire Vol. 4, N.11, June-July 2002
Tripwire was one of the best comics-related publications produced in the past 20 years. It was created by talented and brave editor Joel Meadows and featured great materials from industry's top authors, articles, never or rarely seen art and also... included several interviews and pieces about Alan Moore and his work.
Even if the magazine ceased regular publication, 2013 marked its 21st anniversary and so it’s crowd funding at Kickstarter in order to produce a paperback and a hardcover collection.

The Kickstarter page is HERE: only 17 days left to pledge the project!!!

"Clocking in at 176 pages and A4 in size, the book will include classic TRIPWIRE interviews with creators like Mike (Hellboy) Mignola, Alan (Watchmen, League of Extraordinary Gentlemen) Moore, Frank Quitely (All-Star Superman, Batman & Robin), Grant Morrison (Batman Inc., Joe The Barbarian), Peter Milligan (Hellblazer, Justice League Dark), James (Starman, The Shade) Robinson and more. Also, it will feature a lot of brand new material like a selection of features looking at the key trends and issues of the past twenty years like the best and worst comic and genre movies 1992-2012, the twenty comic creators who have come to prominence over the last twenty years and topics like digital comics, the rise of the independent graphic novel and much more.
