Remarkably happy

Excerpt from an article by Nat Segnit published on the The New Yorker website the 8th of September 2016.

[...] A few weeks after our meeting, I asked Moore whether his own mental health had ever been a concern. “It probably should have been, but it hasn’t,” he said. “I am remarkably happy in my life. I don’t seem to have many of the conflicts that my ostensibly more normal and sane acquaintances seem to have. I’ve never been tempted by the idea of analysis or therapy.” [...]

Above an amazing drawing by Master MIKE MIGNOLA from actor Scott Adsit's art collection featuring Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neill's League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.

Scott Adsit: "[...] I don't assign anything [...]. I just say it has to be a character that appears in the books and that it has to have red in it. That's all I say. [...]

[...] Variety is what I like. I like that I have Mike Mignola has a ballpoint, full page drawing that he did in a bar of Mr. Hyde and Nemo. Just ballpoint pen."

Moore confirms his retirement from comics

Excerpt from an article published the 8th of September on The Guardian.

[...]  At a press conference in London for his latest work, Jerusalem [... ] Moore said he had “about 250 pages of comics left in me”.
[...] "There are a couple of issues of an Avatar [Press] book that I am doing at the moment, part of the HP Lovecraft work I’ve been working on recently. Me and Kevin will be finishing Cinema Purgatorio and we’ve got about one more book, a final book of League of Extraordinary Gentlemen to complete. After that, although I may do the odd little comics piece at some point in the future, I am pretty much done with comics.”
[...] “I think I have done enough for comics. I’ve done all that I can. I think if I were to continue to work in comics, inevitably the ideas would suffer, inevitably you’d start to see me retread old ground and I think both you and I probably deserve something better than that.”
