So, remember a few days ago, when I said Alan Moore is one of the most prolific and influential comic book writers in the world?

He also happens to be a complete madman.

How can I make such a harsh judgement, you may ask? Well, for starters, rather than have a run-of-the-mill midlife crisis when he turned 40, the man decided to declare himself the sorcery-wielding servant of his own, personal Serpent-God.

I think that reaches the threshold of madness in my book.

But, consequentially, as a madman, his writing is always entertaining. Here, he turns his rapier wit to the history of Iraq and the West on page 14 of "Arthur" magazine.
