Reflections on Mirror: At Newsarama, Alan Moore and Jose Villarubia talk about The Mirror of Love, an epic celebration of same-sex love that Moore wrote in 1988 in response to Britain's infamous Clause 28 legislation. Top Shelf released the 136-page hardcover last month:

"There will be a lot of unnecessary hardship and anguish and pain and fighting and shouting, but at the end of the day, things will progress, and they will move on. Those voices, I think, will become more subdued, as they realize that these things have happened and it wasn’t the end of the world. It wasn’t Sodom and Gomorrah and people turning to pillars of salt. The final judgment didn’t descend upon us because two gay librarians from Massachusetts happened to get married and tried to live happily ever after."
