Alan Moore is a fucking prick

Post  thecolorsblend on Sat Nov 30, 2013 12:17 am

Alan Moore wrote:When I mention that Geoff Johns has done a whole series of Green Lantern based on his story "Tygers", he gets tetchy. "Now, see," he says, "I haven't read any superhero comics since I finished with Watchmen. I hate superheroes. I think they're abominations. They don't mean what they used to mean. They were originally in the hands of writers who would actively expand the imagination of their nine- to 13-year-old audience. That was completely what they were meant to do and they were doing it excellently. These days, superhero comics think the audience is certainly not nine to 13, it's nothing to do with them. It's an audience largely of 30-, 40-, 50-, 60-year old men, usually men. Someone came up with the term graphic novel. These readers latched on to it; they were simply interested in a way that could validate their continued love of Green Lantern or Spider-Man without appearing in some way emotionally subnormal. This is a significant rump of the superhero-addicted, mainstream-addicted audience. I don't think the superhero stands for anything good. I think it's a rather alarming sign if we've got audiences of adults going to see the Avengers movie and delighting in concepts and characters meant to entertain the 12-year-old boys of the 1950s.

I've always wanted to divorce Alan Moore from the cult-of-personality that has sprung up around him. There are droves of fans out there who are Moore devotees and put him on a pedestal that honestly I thought he would resent.

That's in the past.

Now I think that by whatever means (osmosis or whatever else) his followers have correctly identified how Moore views most comic book collectors and desperately want to avoid being painted with the same brush.

I have sympathized with Moore on a great many of his sentiments but this is one time when I give him the ol' one-fingered salute. Fuck you and the horse you rode in on, you pretentious, self-absorbed cock.

The guy is so far up his own ass that he doesn't realize what he just said goes DOUBLE for him. He couldn't even TRY and claim he doesn't "love"the medium he makes his money in, including the characters. So if someone just enjoys READING them and is "subnormal" emotionally, what is someone who LOVES them so much he made it his CAREER?

An old, ignorant fuck who BELIEVES he's a magician, or some shit?

Moore is about crazy anyway ain't he? Wouldn't be the first time I read something to that effect. I guess Dave Gibbons was the voice of reason here huh?

Try bringing that up with him, see how far it gets you. He'll probably throw another temper tantrum. Fuck him right in the ear.

I've talked to people who have been to some of his... I don't know what to call them. Demonstrations? Exhibitions? I've got my views of spiritual forces and his mojo is something I don't want any part of. No thanks.

It would take a LOT more than his bitchcraft to intimidate me.

I'd piss in his beard and wipe my nuts off in his hair.

Be my guest. Just know that he'd probably have another crybaby tantrum if you do anything besides throw roses at his feet and kiss his bare ass.

I don't think he'd want to go there. Keep in mind we're talking about some overweight elderly Limey dude. I think the last thing he'd want to do is get physical anybody.
