*Unofficial Alan Moore (*UAM)

What is *UAM and where did it go?

*Unofficial Alan Moore was intended to be at once a repository for all things Mooreian, as well as a place for Art and the pursuit of Societal Change/Betterment, particularly through the Arts.

IN ORDER TO CONTINUE TO SUPPORT AND SHARE BOTH ALAN AND HIS PROJECTS, EG, ARTS LAB NORTHAMPTON, WITHOUT BEING MISCONSTRUED AS SPEAKING ON OR AUTHORIZED BY MR. MOORE WE HAVE REMOVED ALL *UAM TEXT AND LINKS

Who are you?

At the moment I am a singular being under the cognomen of Emporium Purgatorio with a growing group of friends and artists along for the ride of our lives 🙂 The anonymity is solely for having the attention always be on what’s important within *UAM: the Art & the Artists.

Are you affiliated with Alan Moore?

This Alan Moore pages/articles/comics, as well as the content thereof, is in no way endorsed by Alan Moore, nor any of his friends/associates/publishers, etc. It is purely an undertaking from someone who has spent countless (wasted?) hours searching the internet for Alan Moore information that could not always be verified or was outdated; especially the specific links and current projects and causes he is working on or supporting. Emporium Purgatorio is hoping to contribute to pushing the collective Idea Space by being a conduit from idea to follow through: once you’ve found a pursuit or cause worthy of your energy, where do you go next to take an action? Whether that action be reading a fantastic comic, creating your own Art, or pushing Society kicking and screaming towards betterment.
