(W) Alan Moore, Tim Perkins (A) Eddie Campbell
Two of Alan Moore’s performance pieces are adapted by comics by his From Hell collaborator Eddie Campbell. The Birth Caul 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 entwines the disinterment of Oliver Cromwell and Elizabeth Siddell, the visionary nature of Arthur Machen’s experiences after the death of his wife, and Moore’s magical traveler John Constantine.
