DC Comics fans from wherever you are on planet Earth or beyond, welcome to Alan Moore: The Roundtable Discussion. Coming live from Hall 52 of the DC Universe Infinite Auditorium and Entertainment Complex this month’s program is presented by the DC History Club, Harley’s Crew, House of Horror, and the Justice League Book Club. We’ve invited some of the best and brightest minds in the DCU Community, and that includes you, for a discussion of arguably the most influential comic book writer in the last forty years, Alan Moore.
About twice each week, we will post a discussion question concerning Moore, his influences on comics and us, his most important works, and greatest strengths and flaws. What we hope follows is an entertaining and enlightening discussion.
This roundtable is scheduled to last for the month of July. But, like everything on the inter-webs, if you discover it later it’s still new to you and you can join on any question at anytime.
I have been asked to make a few administrative announcements before we begin.
-While this discussion is likely to center on Moore’s writing for DC Comics, much but not all of which is available on DCUI, citing his broader works is completely acceptable.
-Food and tobacco products are prohibited from Hall 52. Drinks served in the official 36 oz Alan Moore: The Roundtable Discussion water bottles are allowed.
-Alan Moore: The Roundtable Discussion water bottles, t-shirts and posters are available for sale in the lobby.*
-Don’t be a chucklehead. This is a talk about comics, not the fate of the human race. Chuckleheads will be escorted from Hall 52 with no refunds.
And, now to introduce the members of our roundtable: @Vroom, of the Justice League Book Club, @TurokSonOfStone1950 of the DC History Club, @Razzzcat of Harley’s Crew and @darkstarz of the House of Horror. Let’s also give @darkstarz an additional round of applause for the official Alan Moore: The Roundtable Discussion poster and our question prompt cards. I see a lot more roundtable discussion invitees (that’s you) ready to join and I’ll welcome them as they answer a question. And, finally I’m your host @msgtv from the DC History Club. Settle in, get comfortable, it’s going to be a great event.
There’s nothing for sale. Really, I wish there was, but there’s not. You should have already known that.
