Alan Moore

Fecha de nacimiento: 18. Noviembre 1953

Alan Moore es un escritor, y guionista de historietas, labor esta última en la que ha destacado por sus trabajos reconocidos por la crítica y popularmente aclamados como Watchmen, V de Vendetta, From Hell y The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. Ha sido catalogado como el «Mejor Escritor de Historietas de la Historia».

Trabajó primero para el mercado de su país en revistas como 2000AD o Warrior. A partir de 1984 trabajó en el mercado estadounidense, principalmente para DC Comics. Desde mediados de la década del '90 trabaja mayormente en editoriales independientes a ambos lados del Atlántico.

Su pintoresco pasado, aunado a una actitud con ciertos matices misantrópicos y su autoproclamada conversión en mago del caos, lo han vuelto célebre hasta el punto de convertirse en un icono. Políticamente se declara anarquista, ideología que refleja en algunas de sus obras.


„Las culturas sexualmente progresivas nos dieron las matemáticas, la filosofía, la literatura, la civilización y el resto. En cambio las sociedades sexualmente restrictivas produjeron la Edad Media y el Holocausto.“

„La vida no se divide en géneros. Es una horrible, romántica, trágica y cómica novela de ciencia ficción de detectives. Ya sabes, con un poco de pornografía, si tienes suerte.“


„Lo más importante que he aprendido sobre la teoría de la conspiración es que los teóricos de la conspiración creen en ella porque es más reconfortante. La verdad es que el mundo es caótico. No es la conspiración de la banca judía, ni de alienígenas grises, ni de reptiloides de 12 pies de altura que controlan desde otra dimensión. La verdad es más aterradora, nadie tiene el control. El mundo carece de timón.“

„Hay una relación inversa entre el dinero y la imaginación.“

„My experience of life is that it is not divided up into genres; it’s a horrifying, romantic, tragic, comical, science-fiction cowboy detective novel. You know, with a bit of pornography if you're lucky.“

„People shouldn't be afraid of their government. Governments should be afraid of their people.“ V for Vendetta

„Behind this mask there is more than just flesh. Beneath this mask there is an idea... and ideas are bulletproof.“ V for Vendetta

„Everybody is special. Everybody. Everybody is a hero, a lover, a fool, a villain. Everybody. Everybody has their story to tell.“ V for Vendetta


„Artists use lies to tell the truth. Yes, I created a lie. But because you believed it, you found something true about yourself.“ V for Vendetta

„Heard joke once: Man goes to doctor. Says he's depressed. Says life seems harsh and cruel. Says he feels all alone in a threatening world where what lies ahead is vague and uncertain. Doctor says, "Treatment is simple. Great clown Pagliacci is in town tonight. Go and see him. That should pick you up." Man bursts into tears. Says, "But doctor... I am Pagliacci.“ Watchmen

„You wear a mask for so long, you forget who you were beneath it.“ V for Vendetta

„The past can't hurt you anymore, not unless you let it.“ V for Vendetta


„Knowledge, like air, is vital to life. Like air, no one should be denied it.“ V for Vendetta

„Stood in firelight, sweltering. Bloodstain on chest like map of violent new continent. Felt cleansed. Felt dark planet turn under my feet and knew what cats know that makes them scream like babies in night.

Looked at sky through smoke heavy with human fat and God was not there. The cold, suffocating dark goes on forever and we are alone. Live our lives, lacking anything better to do. Devise reason later. Born from oblivion; bear children, hell-bound as ourselves, go into oblivion. There is nothing else.

Existence is random. Has no pattern save what we imagine after staring at it for too long. No meaning save what we choose to impose. This rudderless world is not shaped by vague metaphysical forces. It is not God who kills the children. Not fate that butchers them or destiny that feeds them to the dogs. It’s us. Only us. Streets stank of fire. The void breathed hard on my heart, turning its illusions to ice, shattering them. Was reborn then, free to scrawl own design on this morally blank world.

Was Rorschach.

Does that answer your Questions, Doctor?“
Watchmen

„Remember, remember the fifth of November of gunpowder treason and plot. I know of no reason why the gun powder treason should ever be forgot.“ V for Vendetta

„My mother said I broke her heart... but it was my integrity that was important. Is that so selfish? It sells for so little, but it's all we have left in this place. It is the very last inch of us... but within that inch we are free.“ V for Vendetta
