Dear Alan Moore: You're Welcome!

Saturday 5th February marked Save Our Libraries day as over 400 libraries across the UK are under threat of closure. Among the support for libraries was thrown the hirsute weight of the comics and graphic novel luminary Alan Moore, author of critically acclaimed works Watchmen, V for Vendetta, From Hell and comic series Promethea among others.

He was clearly going to explore the unchartered areas of his medium anyway but it's fantastic to think he believes part of getting there was due to his time spent in libraries. An institution for research, a social hub and a sanctuary for genius - aahhhhh libraries, is there nothing you can't do?
