More Moore rarities - The Bowing Machine

That Glycon chappy comes up with the works again, this time it's the Bowing Machine.
This one's an obscure strip from Raw Volume 2, no 3 back in 1991. This was the time when Raw went from the huge, beautiful, oversized and gloriously impractical volumes to the Penguin Books published paperback book size that seemed so radical and slightly wrong back in the 90s yet seems the norm today. Of course, Penguin were a few years ahead of the game and were jumping into publishing graphic novels after the successes of Watchmen and Dark Knight and Maus. One great boom in comics followed by a bust.

Anyhow, the Moore strip... illustrated by Mark Beyer.
