The Starry Wisdom – two of however many

THE STARRY WISDOM contains contributions from several comics folk, most notably among them the two shimmering lights in the firmament of the magickal side of comics creation: Alan Moore and Grant Morrison.

Lexicon for the future

Capital traps Debt wizard Capitalmancer Post-inauthentic Guilt quilt Para-paradise Nopocalypse I may talk about one or more of these later on. Nopocalypse is the most likely for a first candidate. It’s a word we could use, don’t you think?
