    Alan Moore gives interview; fails to mention Watchmen movie, American cowardice

    Moore discussing the new League of Extraordinary Gentlemen project:

    Kind of nice to see an interviewer NOT going out of his way to push Moore's buttons.

    It's not so uncommon. There was a 2 part interview on CBR last week that did the same.

    Did he at least address his loathing of comics?

    Yes I'm a fan of Moore's and can understand his stance on film adaptations of his work. What they did to "The League of Extraordinary Gentleman" was an outrage. He is damned if he comments on it when people are asking him about his opinion, and damned if he doesn't if he refuses to give one. It's either "There goes Moore again on his high horse" or "He is too good to even mention it". He's said a million times that this is his opinion and that it doesn't matter because they are going to do what they are going to do. He doesn't lose sleep over it or spend his days wailing about it. He just doesnt' like it and doesnt' take a profit from it either. I think that gives him all due cause to not like it. Now stop asking those questions and focus on what he is doing. I'm psyched for some new LOEG!

    Oh, I'm just remembering the last year or so when it seems like we had daily links to Moore interviews, always with a subject line to the tune of, "Moore tells Snyder to suck it! And calls Americans fatties!"

    It was a little sensationalistic. And, uh, retarded.
