And Away We Go!!!

A Happy Mandrill


All systems are a go, go, go! Emporium Purgatorio, via our *Unofficial Alan Moore site, is actively seeking/promoting Indie Comics, Indie Artists, and those that may have something to SAY through their art about our current climate of…well, of needing a ‘Mandrillifesto‘.

All characters are real. No names will be changed to protect anyone. Oh, and when I took 20 things and added another 3 from a friend, well wouldn’t you know! Magical!

Please, VOICES ARE NEEDED! Jump in on our comments, Artist’s Job Board, send an article or a revue. Make a comic. Sell your work here with no strings attached. Write a poem. Tell us to fuck off. *to be honest, this last one wouldn’t feel very good, but we support your right to give us the bird. we’re fans of aviary anyways.

To respectfully quote some of our favorite people… Watch This Space…

Festival 23 & Discordia Approach

Festival 23. Wonderful. Glorious. Necessary. Alan Moore.

The (Apple) Core: The Principia Discordia
First I must sprinkle you with fairy dust…




“In 1965 the Discordia came alive, its principles captured in words
Inspired by a vision and a visit from Eris, it set out to achieve the absurd
To find peace in the chaos, using humour and derision
It birthed a new movement off the back of a religion
The religion was a joke, as all religions are
But if you absorb the Principia you’re sure to go far”
Lord Fnord, 23rd August 2015

Alan Moore talks with John Higgs about the 2000’s, LOEG Century, From Hell, Providence & Lovecraft

John Higgs knows a few things about the twentieth century. He also knows a few things about Alan Moore. Together, Higgs and Moore lay some groundwork for what could quite easily (and fantastically) be a future collaboration using this and other of their talks as a jumping off point.


John Higgs – author of Stranger Than We Can Imagine: Making Sense of the Twentieth Century – talks to Alan Moore about how the 20th Century has been portrayed in his work – in particular From Hell, Providence and League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: Century.”
