“You know in the twenties Magicians still had style. Turbans, tuxedos and tarts in tiaras. Smashing times. Now it’s all Sigils, stubble and self abuse.”
-Alan Moore, probably making fun of Grant Morrison
[Moore saw himself as similar to the Golden Dawn occultists of the 1920s, and Morrison’s style is notorious for its use of sigils.]
Grant Morrison’s The Invisibles starts out rather strongly, but quickly becomes self-indulgent.
It starts off with a working-class, blond Cockney boy – kind of like a young John Constantine with longer hair.
