Alan Moore is shaking my hand and telling me how nice it is to meet me in person.
Let me explain: I used to work for a national entertainment publication, and in 2003, on a couple of occasions, I spoke with Alan Moore on the phone. I interviewed him once about LXG, and once about Neil Gaiman (with a brief followup the next day). He was completely engaging and wonderful to talk to. So, I heard from Top Shelf Comics, the publisher of Lost Girls, that Alan Moore and Melinda Gebbie were going to be doing a talk in London. It seemed like a good time for a short vacation, so I took this opportunity to meet the man, face-to-face.
I was a little nervous, so I think I was talking too much when we finally did meet. But he was absolutely lovely!
