* AnachronicOrder: Telling the history of comics from the perspective of Moore and Morrison means she often has to go back and fill in the history of genres and comic companies once they become relevant. Book Two has the structure of each chapter mirroring the equivalent chapter of ''Comicbook/Watchmen'', including flashbacks in the appropriate places. Most obvious with Chapter Four, which is Moore's entire history in the style of Dr Manhattan jumping through his own life.

* ButIDigress: Dr Sandifer enjoys it when the main topic of a blog entry isn't the official subject but a digression which will tie back in at the end of the entry. On one occasion, a parenthetical comment runs for three entries, after which he carries on exactly where he left off.

* YourMindMakesItReal: Alan Moore and Grant Morrison are both documented as taking this approach to occultism. Alan Moore's line in [[{{ComicBook/FromHell}} From Hell]] about gods being real in our minds is an obvious example. [[NotMakingThisUpDisclaimer Alan Moore now worships the Roman snake god Glycon.]]

* ViewersAreGeniuses: The reader is assumed to be at least somewhat familiar with things like WilliamBlake's work, principles of occultism, and a lot of comics, many of which are obscure and haven't seen reprints in ages. Or, if not familiar, at least open-minded enough to try to learn.
