information entropy

November 7, 2002

the estimable blackbeltjones points us to alan moore on information and entropy, penned in the wake of 9/11.

i've been a slavish fan of moore ever since he started producing genre-bending comic book pieces like swamp thing and watchmen back in the 1980s. recently, he's been upping the literary ante in a series of demanding but rewarding graphic narratives like lost girls (with artist melinda gebbie, who also illustrated this piece).
