AARGH (Artists Against Rampant Government Homophobia) was a one-off comics anthology published by Mad Love in 1988.

The comic was designed to aid the fight against Clause 28, which was a controversial amendment to the Local Government Act 1988, a Britishmarker law which was designed to outlaw the promotion of homosexuality by local authorities.

At that time Alan Moore, who was in a relationship with his wife and their girlfriend, felt that the law was heterosexist and that it would obviously affect them personally. To help their fight Moore formed Mad Love, his own publishing company, to release AARGH.

The title was a mixed bag of stories and art by Neil Gaiman, Bryan Talbot, Dave Sim and Dave Gibbons. Moore contributed an eight page story called The Mirror of Love, with Steve Bissette and Rick Veitch providing art. The comic was praised for some of its content and sold well.

Clause 28 was eventually repealed in 2003. Moore has also reworked The Mirror of Love with illustrator José Villarrubia for Top Shelf Productions.
