When ever Alan Moore is brought up, i automatically think of someone who's career consists of making money off other peoples work. Watchmen, the most persistent source of Alan's tirades was based on pre existing comic characters. Just about every famous literally character you can think of has made it on the pages of the Alan Moore's The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. And yet, for some reason, every single time I hear about this crotchety old vag fart, he's complaining about someone "messing with his work". And how this guy and that guy is devoid of any ideas. This is a quote from moore i read earlier today that literally made me laugh out loud.
" As far as I know, there weren’t that many prequels or sequels to Moby Dick.”
This is the man who turned Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, Dorian Gray, Ishmael from Moby Dick, the invisible man and Captain Nemo into crime fighting Super heroes. Does he seriously believe that Lewis Carroll, Frank Baum, and J. M. Barrie would approve of Moores portrayal of their characters in lost Girls? Yes i can totally see, Baum being ok with Dorothy being turned into a sex addicted coke whore who has sex with her own father. Im sure Mr. Barrie would be patting Alan on the back for turning Peter Pan into a male prostitute who watches his sister tinkerbell get brutally raped by the pedophile, Captain Hook. Because that's totally what Baum had in mind when he wrote Peter and Wendy. /rant
So what do you people think? Is Mr. Moore justified in his constant complaints? Or is he a Hypocritical jack-ass who needs to stfu and go away. I think My post is quite clear on where is i stand on this.
