Description


The Morrison Hotel anthology written by Leah Moore, in collaboration with the surviving members of the legendary rock band and drawn by artists from around the comic book world, will weave the band’s influence into  some of the lore that led to their status as the architects of counterculture, influencing artists, poets, and outsiders for generations to come, set against the backdrop of the close of the free spirit of the 1960s into the tumultuous 1970s. A decade in which women, African Americans, Native Americans, gays, lesbians and other marginalized people continued their fight for equality, and many Americans joined the protest against the ongoing war in Vietnam.

About the Author


Leah Moore has been writing comics since 2003, when she co-wrote Wild Girl for Wildstorm Comics with her husband John Reppion. Since then she has co-written Albion, for DC, three original Sherlock Holmes mysteries, and feminist fairy-tale Damsels for Dynamite Comics. She has co-written adaptations of Bram Stokers Dracula, two volumes of M R James Ghost Stories of an Antiquary, Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland, and HP Lovecraft’s Shadow Over Innsmouth. For Dark Horse Comics, she and John wrote all-ages supernatural mystery Conspiracy of Ravens drawn by Sally Jane Thompson.

She has loved The Doors since she ransacked her parents vinyl, aged thirteen, and tried to turn her bedroom into the vampire-infested sea cave from The Lost Boys. While on a school field trip to Paris, even though it was raining heavily, she made her class divert to visit Jim Morrison’s grave in Pere Lachaise cemetery. The Doors are, at least partly responsible for her misspent youth in rock clubs in the nineties, so she thanks them for that.
