Slaginc: 30 Maude House Horatio St London E2 7RY

So, Slaginc muses

We are the gloomy children of the night.
Curses they call us in our homes beneath the ground.
We drive from home those who have shed the blood of men.

Where is the place, then, where the killer's flight shall end?

A place where happiness is nevermore allowed.

Now
the House of Justice has collapsed.

There are times when fear is good.
It must keep its watchful place at the heart's controls. There is advantage in the wisdom won from pain.

I, disinherited, suffering, heavy with anger
shall let loose on the land
the vindictive poison
dripping deadly out of my heart upon the ground;
this from itself shall breed cancer,
the leafless, the barren to strike,
for the right, their low lands
and drag its smear of mortal infection on the ground.

In complete honesty I promise you a place of your own,
deep hidden under ground that is yours by right
where you shall sit on shining chairs beside the hearth
to accept devotions offered by your citizens.

Aeschylus "Oresteia"

Alan Moore's Essay: Sexism in Comics

I "borrowed" the following scans and text from mechanicaljewel at Live Journal.com. I fondly recall the comic, "The Daredevils" from which they are lifted, it featured reprint comics and new editorial and comic-strip material, notably "Captain Britain". I thought it deserved to go 'viral'. To read the text click on each scan for the larger version.

Invisible Girls and Phantom Ladies: How far have we come?

Back in 1983, Alan Moore wrote a 10-page article on the portrayal of women in comics and the presence/lack thereof of female creators. It was serialized in Marvel UK's The Daredevils #4-6.

It's really interesting to see things like this, written 25 years ago, and to address the question 'how far have we really come?'










British Marvel Apes Colour Pictures

These images were printed on the back cover of Marvel's "Planet of the Apes" comic which was published in the U.K. from October 1974 to February 1977 when it was merged into the "Mighty World of Marvel" weekly comic. The U.K. Apes comic also included some interior black and white text and photo features about the Apes T.V. series that were never published in the U.S. edition of the magazine. I will scan and post these extra text features at a later date...
