ROLLING STONE: The Doors Get Their Own Comic for ‘Morrison Hotel’ 50th Anniversary
“I think the songs don’t just lend themselves to the medium, they actually cry out to be comics,” author Leah Moore says.
Like many younger fans of the Doors, Leah Moore was intoxicated by their aura, their mystery, when she was a teen. The comics writer recalls being introduced to the band via 1987’s The Lost Boys, particularly the Jim Morrison poster the vampire teens kept in their cave. Then, in 1992, she convinced her physics teachers to take her class to visit Morrison’s grave during a class jaunt to Paris.
