You probably know him best as one of the most lauded writers in the field but Alan Moore is also a talented underground cartoonist.

One of his most famous works as an illustrator, working under the pseudonym 'Curt Vile,'was "The Stars My Degradation" a weekly strip which ran in Sounds music paper in the early 80ies & scripted by Moore's pal Steve Moore (no relation), working under the pseudonym 'Pedro Henry'.
At a 2000ad signing session (probably this one from 1983) I was lucky enough to get Moore to sign this 4 page special, and even have him to sketch Axel Pressbutton for me on a blank playing card he was surprised that anyone would want him to do a sketch but graciously obliged
Another example of how Alan Moore's work was part of the UK underground scene is this bootlegged illustration (by Alan Davis) from the Moore penned 2000ad strip D.R & Quinch which was reappropriated for this anarcho-feminist issue of Class War.
