Off-Topic: Nice Awesome Universe Alan Moore Comics Previews Available On Google Books

Just came across this and thought I'd post it: I found some decent previews of a few of Alan Moore's Awesome Universe titles at Google Books earlier this evening. Here are the links:

Supreme: The Story Of The Year

Supreme: The Return

Judgement Day

These are definitely worth a look if you haven't had the pleasure - there's a nice Silver Age DC vibe to the Supreme stuff that old school comic book geeks like myself will find especially charming.

(Semi-)Off-Topic: Excellent Steve Ditko Documentary (w/Alan Moore Interview) On YouTube

Thought I'd share a great BBC documentary on eccentric comics genius Steve Ditko that I discovered on YouTube recently.

The Alan Moore interview alone makes it worth the price of admission, particularly his inspired ode to Ditko's Randian superhero Mr. A via a reworked version of the Velvet Underground's
"Sister Ray" (which, incidentally, has had said song stuck on "repeat" in my head for the last week or so).
