A Disease of Language by Alan Moore
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Originally a performance piece by Alan Moore and Tim Perkins, "The Birth Caul", adapted as a comic by Eddie Campbell, is a shamanism of childhood, a journey from the present to the past, back into the womb and beyond. The magical creation theory story of love, death and resurrection, "Snakes and Ladders" was also a performance, entwining the disinterment of Oliver Cromwell and Elizabeth Siddell (to retrieve Rossetti's poems), the visionary nature of Arthur Machen's experiences after the death of his wife and Alan Moore's magical traveller John Constantine. In Eddie Campbell's self published magazine, "Egomania", he interviewed Alan Moore at length to produce (possibly) the most informative and fascinating insights into the creative process and Alan's study of magical realities. This title includes the studies of magic and rebirth. It features: "The Birth Caul"; "Snakes and Ladders"; "Egomania Magazine"; and Alan Moore Interview.
