Alan Moore Birthday!

Alan Moore celebrated his 64th birthday on November, 18, 2017. He was born in 1953, in Northampton, United Kingdom.

Recently he completed his novel, Jerusalem. It is a complex narrative, rich with detail, plot, and character development.

"Will you still need me.
Will you still love me when I am sixty-four."

In other celebrations, this year marks the 100th birthday of Jacob Kurtzberg (aka Jack Kirby), and Will Eisner's 100th as well.
