Steve Moore: Fabulous Beasts

This is an interview I did with Steve Moore back in 2000 when he returned to regularly writing comics after a fifteen-year break. I used a pen-name (Neil Cooper, a veteran of Comic World) because I was also editing the paper and didn't want people to think I was just promoting the work of a friend. I hope you enjoy this trip down memory lane with one of Britain's finest comics scribes.

Yes but why "Neil Cooper",Steve? And did you write these?

Steve said...

Most of the pen-names I used were in magazines I edited - it gave the illusion that the contents were selected from a range of authors rather than desperately put together by the editor because he had no budget! No, I didn't write books, only features.

And names tended to be two from the nearest shelf, so it was a combination of Neil Gaiman and Richard Cooper... that kind of thing.
