hehe…Alan Moore is a cartoonist, not a genius

Nah. He’s a genius who writes. There’s a difference.

LOL…he’s a cartoonist, which makes him an artist and a writer. Then it’s all a matter of what have become of this world…and not even he could know that. And it takes a lot more than a genius to know what’s going to happen in the future
I would say it’s pure luck

The New York Times has an extensive article about “V” and Mr. Moore. The money quote is this:
“I don’t want anything more to do with these works,” [Moore] said in a recent telephone interview, “because they were stolen from me — knowingly stolen from me.”
You’ll probably find the full article fascinating:

it appears he was quite prescient

Other movies based on Alan Moore’s works:
League of Extraordinary Gentlemen
Understandable if he’s a little skeptical about this one.
I’m going to see this one on Friday, and I can’t freaking wait. I’ve heard nothing but good things, and they’ve screened the hell out of it which means the studio’s proud of it (unlike LXG).

Yeh, LXG was a terrible, terrible, terrible movie. What spoiled it most of all was the awful fx of My Hyde. Totally over the top and crumby.
The one I’m most looking forward to is The Watchmen. When (and if) it ever appears.
Brad, let us know what you think of V! Please?
