Steve Moore was a British comic writer who was born on the 11th of June 1949[2] and died on the 16th March 2014 at the age of 64[3].

Moore's first job after leaving school at the age of 16 was as a flour grader at teh Rank Hovie McDougall laboratory in Deptford. A following job as an office boy at Odhams Press (a subsidiary of IPC) led to his becoming a junior sub-editor on Pow! and Fantastic comics three months later. The two comics reprinted strips from Marvel Comics, for whom he would later work[1].

Moore became a freelance writer in 1972[1].

Steve was a close friend and acted as a mentor to Alan Moore (famously of no relation)[2]. Alan provided the introduction for a collection of Steve's Tales of Telguuth, the first involvement he has had with a 2000AD publication for almost thirty years[4]. Alan described Steve as his "oldest and dearest friend"[1].

He wrote the first of Tharg's Future Shocks and was involved in the creation of Fortean Times magazine[5].

Never married, Moore cared for his brother Chris, who suffered from Motor Neurone Disease before Chris's death in 2009[1].
