    Yeah, that really sucks about Moebius. HELL of a ****ing artist. I remember reading the Silver Surfer story he did with Stan Lee for the first time which, coincidentally, comes out in a new hardcover in May and thinking his Galactus was one of the coolest things I'd ever seen up to that point.



    Helps that I was super into Tron at the time, I'm sure.

    “If DC Want To Soil Themselves In Public And Kill The Reputations Of A Number Of Otherwise Possibly Halfway-Decent Writers And Artists, Then I’m Certainly Not Going To Stop Them. And, I Shall Take My Fun And My Pleasure However It Comes&#

    He told me they were planning to do these prequels and sequels, and that he had been offered something in the region of a quarter of a million dollars to oversee the project–that it would be handled by the top talent in the industry, to which I said some quite intemperate things. I said that, as far as Watchmen was concerned, I didn’t really think that there was any talent in the mainstream comics industry. If there had have been, they presumably, sometime over the past 20 or 25 years, would have perhaps come up with something that was as good as Watchmen–or as notable or as memorable–after they’d already been shown how to do it.
    It strikes me that, yes, I can understand why they took on Before Watchmen. It will probably be the only opportunity they get in their careers to actually be attached to a project that anybody outside of comics has ever heard of. So, I can see how that would be a great lure. I don’t think I would have done it, though, because to go down in history as the people who did the lame rewrites and prequels to Watchmen–well, that’s not for me. But, of course everybody has to make their own choices. So, no, obviously I won’t want anything to do with any of the people who are attached to this project at any point in the future, but that isn’t a huge loss.
    Jesus, what an *******.

    have a huge respect for my audience. On the occasions when I meet them, they seem, I like to think, to be intelligent and scrupulous people. If people do want to go out and buy these Watchmen prequels, they would be doing me an enormous favor if they would just stop buying my other books. When I think of my audience, I like to have good thoughts and think about how lucky I am to have one that is as intelligent as mine and as moral as mine.
    **** you, I'll buy your books and every goddamn one of the prequels. Suck it.

    That's a bit of a leap and a bit of an overreaction Doc. Moore is overly simplistic and almost Nazi-like in his empirical beliefs. Isn't it true that the Watchmen were based on the Charlton comics characters? Does not that make him a victim of his own argument? In his overstated opinion nothing good can come of a writer/artist reusing another creators ideas. That makes him a hypocrite. Plus he makes you look absolutely cuddly in comparison as far as being a prickly pear.

    Bull****. Who says the Watchmen prequels are going to be soulless? Not me. I also don't think every remake is soulless.

    So there. Suck it.
