Use of the Rp template[edit]

This article is noting pages within sources using Rp. That is a valid method.
At present, it is using the syntax "rp|page=7" which outputs [1](p7)
rather than the syntax "rp|7" which outputs the shorter [1]:7
I don't personally recall seeing another page opting for that syntax.
So, this look is by choice, rather than by accident?

Wizard?[edit]

I notice that the article says Moore is a wizard, but does not link the term. How is being a "wizard" distinct from being a "ceremonial magician"? john k (talk) 00:41, 28 June 2012 (UTC)

I agree. "Neo-pagan" is also redundant and not cited. After looking through many interviews with him on the topic, I can no where find him referring to himself as a "neo-pagan" or "wizard," but only a magician. I am planning on removing these words. I also may remove "occultist," as it is implied by "magician," for which there are verifiable sources. Wiki.correct.1 (talk) 12:59, 1 January 2013 (UTC)

credited with the development of the term "graphic novel" over "comic book"[edit]

According to the article, Alan Moore "has subsequently been credited with the development of the term "graphic novel" over "comic book"." This may be true, he might have been credited with the development of the term, I cannot find the article in Time Out magazine. However, Moore has expressed a dislike of the term "graphic novel" in one of his documentaries (either Monsters, Maniacs and Moore or The Mindscape of Alan Moore). He specifically states a dislike of the term "graphic novel" and says they should be referred to as "comic books" as that is what they are. Being unable to find the article online, and uncertain of the protocol involving his being credited with it, I wasn't sure if I should edit the page. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 66.168.47.108 (talk) 03:58, 7 July 2012 (UTC)
