Abstract

An analysis of the influence of William Burroughs' radically deconstructive fiction on the graphic novelist Alan Moore. In particular, Burrougs' conception of the word as virus is related to the relationship of word and text in the comic book genre, and its subversive employment by Moore. Also, the poltiical subversiveness of Burroughs' idea of the Nova Mob will be related to Moore's own countercultural politics.
