Jean-Emmanuel Deluxe: Someone sharing the same spirituality and mysticism as you is Alejandro Jodorowsky, were you at all influenced by him?

Alan Moore: Jodorowsky was somebody who I had heard of when I was younger, but I’m ashamed to say that while cinema is an interest of mine, it is not one of my greatest. In fact, I hadn’t actually seen Jodorowsky’s work until relatively recently. I’d heard of it and I respected it by reputation, but having discovered Jodorowsky, I think that he is wonderful. I think that his film work is tremendous, and I even very much enjoyed an article that he did that was reprinted in Arthur Magazine that was talking about how he had gone to Mexico and had met Leonora Carrington, the former wife of Max Ernst and the last of the Surrealists. She is still alive, living in Mexico, and she’s the last of the original Surrealists and she is probably one of the best as well. Jodorowsky wrote a wonderful piece about her. Yes, I believe, it’s safe to say we know each other’s work. A friend of mine, who is a film director actually met Jodorowsky and had mentioned my name and Jodorowsky had given a thumbs-up sign. To which I would give at least two thumbs up to Jodorowsky. He’s a remarkable artist and a remarkable human being.
