"Another retro blog going back to 1986 when I was a fresh faced fanboy aged 21, still learning the craft of drawing and writing comic strips. It's no secret to those who know me I'm a huge Alan Moore fan have been since his work for Warrior and 2000AD. These scans are from colour photocopies that are 26 years old so the colour has faded and Alan's skin has turned yellow! [...]"

"The initial sketch for this Marvelman cover was a little too woolly and vague so Big Ben wasn't recognised during the approval process. Clearly visible in the final pencils I discovered there were legal issues preventing Big Ben appearing so he had to be removed. Rather than erasing the figure and risking damaging the page surface I drew the correction on a separate patch which I inserted after Mark had inked both parts." [Alan Davis]
I know that I've been notorious or famous for doing those very long scripts. When I went back to look at the first "Marvelman" script, I was shocked. How did I ever get away with this skimpy script? These descriptions are barely a paragraph long! Some of the panel descriptions are a few lines. These days, say Promethea, that's going to be a 48 pages of type for a 24-page comic, and there have been some like the Moebius strip page in Promethea #15 where the script was 10 pages of manuscript describing it, because it was very complex. I can imagine that my scripts were a lot longer than what DC was used to. [Alan Moore]
