The new Alan Moore novel will be published within a week. I recommend his work to those unfamiliar with his work as he has much to offer. He has often delved into historical, spiritual, mystical, and political themes. He has worked on this novel for many years and it is finally here. Like the Voice from the Fire much of the piece revolves around Northampton, his birthplace, and its linkage to past, present, and future experiences.
Here is an excerpt from Jerusalem, the scene taking place as an artist is starting restoration of a fresco:
"... With a bleak, numb horror moving up his spine Ern realised that without its modelling disturbing the almost-flat plane on which it was described or breaking from the confines of its two-dimensional domain, the angel’s massive face was turning slowly, still within the surface of the fresco, to regard him with a gaze that was head-on."
The cover image is by Alan Moore, who is also an artist. He started out his career drawing and writing, including bouts of Maxell the Cat, a Godzilla illustration, and much more. Check out his other projects including Electricomics.
