"I'm not sure my characters are so much anti-establishment as suffering from a lack of options. Kev, the Pro and so on have really just been dealt a shit hand, and are endeavouring to do the best with what they've got. Billy Butcher in The Boys is a different example; he single-mindedly sets out to achieve his goal and - if not actually joining the establishment - certainly gets close enough so he can use the establishment's resources to achieve his own aims.

Put simply, I suppose I'm interested in how people behave when they've got their backs to the wall and are faced with a limited set of choices. A billionaire who can finance a private war on blue-collar crime, or a bloke who's bulletproof and flies through the air - the trials and tribulations of people like that just don't do it for me."

"It's hard for me to go around shouting about the relevance- or otherwise- of my war comics; I'm not going to claim that all the answers to the world's current problems lie within the pages of 303. But it was partly inspired by the disastrous maelstrom we've managed to get ourselves into, and provides an outlet for some of my thoughts on the subject."

"303 is the story of a Russian Special Forces Colonel, who, after a particularly brutal bit of black ops nastiness in Afghanistan, decides to walk to America to take out a highly important target. It's a story I've had kicking around in my head for the last few years. The title refers to the rifle he's going to use for the job, an antique British army Lee Enfield, three oh three calibre."

"The Courtyard was my attempt to write a story within the mythology of H.P. Lovecraft that did not try to regurgitate Lovecraft's style. It was an attempt to write a Lovecraftian story that was set in what was then the near future rather than in a Lovecraftian Era. As such, I thought it was a very successful story and it has always been a little favorite of mine in terms of my horror output."
--Alan Moore, AvatarPress.com

"It’s a repurposing of the Lovecraft pastiche to make it a vehicle that tells us more about Lovecraft and his world rather than simply extending the roll call of unpronounceable gods. And rather than regurgitating tropes that were brand new and exciting back in the 1920’s, I wanted to create stories that were true to the essence of Lovecraft, but were as shocking and unprecedented as Lovecraft’s stories were when they first started to appear in small circulation fanzines and in the pages of Weird Tales." - Alan Moore
