Alan Moore in conversation

This is tonight, don't forget!

The Guardian Live events team have announced "Alan Moore in conversation with Stewart Lee". All details are here - they say...

Legendary comic book writer Alan Moore will talk to comedian Stewart Lee about his first ever short story collection, Illuminations.

Described by fellow fantasy writer Neil Gaiman as “both mind-expanding and cosmic while utterly rooted in our urban reality,” Illuminations is an epic tour-de-force that combines madness with urbane magic. Through nine stories, Moore takes us into the folds of his wondrous and strange universe, introducing us to a cast of memorable characters, from the four horsemen of the apocalypse and paranormal study groups, to people plagued with nostalgia.

Widely regarded as one of the best comic book writers in the English language, Moore’s works include The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, From Hell and V for Vendetta. He has published two novels, Voice of the Fire and Jerusalem, and in 2024 he will launch Long London, a fantasy quintet that will move from the “shell-shocked and unravelled” capital of 1949 to a version “just beyond our knowledge”.
He will be in conversation with stand-up comedian and writer Stewart Lee, and answering your questions in this livestreamed event.
