This chapter concentrates on the graphical novels of Alan Moore, the absurd fiction of J. G. Ballard, and Michael Dibden's thriller Dark Spectre to indicate some of the ways in which Blake is often used as a means to explain a peculiarly perverse form of evil, an intelligent psychopathy, that also has as its real target the institutional hypocrisy of moral law.
