More ineresting in the history of modern occultism than in the history of comics IMO.

Huh?

Sorry it's a Friday and the in-laws are over?

I'm not aware of any beef between Birocco and Alan Moore (http://biroco.com/other/moore.htm). See also... (http://www.barbelith.com/topic.php?id=12871)

They just go way back, Moore's a serious occultist and whippet fancier, Biroco was a small-time magus and bookmaker who initiated the 156 current* with the Bablon working, and they did some work together. Principally Moore's contribution to the revived Kaos 14 but some other bits and piece too.


* Supposed to be the new version of the 93 Current that Crowley initiated, also partly via engagement with Babalon. On the Water Pumping rhythm.

I suspect it's that, as always happens, lotsa people in the chaos current fell out with one another.
i didnt think there is any animosity? just wondering how their paths became intertwined...

Sorry fella, got completely the wrong end of the stick, hence the edit above.

Biroco is kinda modern occult aristocracy (though he'd hate to be described as such) cos of publishing Kaos magazine in the 80s, which some regard as the best occult journal published in the last couple of decades. He's an extremely knowledgable and accomplished occultist who also has a total FU attitude to authority, which is nice. Alan Moore also knows his stuff and they just wound up sharing a circle of friends AFAICT. There's not that many degrees of separation in that culture.
