When comic book legends collide: Neil Gaiman and Alan Moore
There couldn’t be two comic book authors that are more opposite in their fashion sense.
Like Martin Luther King Jr., Roman Abramovich has a dream. Or, rather, he had a dream, which really was less a dream than a looming reality. Problem is, it was ever looming, and it now seems to have passed him by. The Champions League trophy was on Abramovich’s horizon for years, yet it turned out to be no more than a mirage, a now long-lost memory of hope forgone. After all, he was the first in England to do what he did. That morose night in Moscow is the closest the Russian came to grasping his dreams by the throat.
