Alan Moore: Grumpy old man

Posted by Peter Bangs on Monday, September 28, 2009,

This is soooo funny!!!  The comics world is once more ablaze with bad feelings towards Alan Moore.  This time it's because he's said in an interview that DC is still living off the ideas he produced for them 30 odd years ago.  This time Geoff John's Darkest Night story is the target for his ire.  As ever Moore is railing against the storytelling bankruptcy currently prevalent in Marvel and DC comics and how far to many stories at DC are based on throwaway ideas in stories he produced at the c...

About Me

Peter Bangs Married, two kids, mortgage, working for my wife, looking after our two year old son and frankly terrified. Welcome to my little bit of sanity. I've spent 39 of my 46 years wanting to create stories and comics and achieving very little (a 200 page comic and a 24hour comic 10 years or more ago and very little since) so this is where I'm getting serious. Do work, put it out there, move on. Currently blog, reviews and a bunch of artwork will appear here, comics will be hosted on issuu on the words and pictures page. Now let loose the dogs of war. ( that would have been so much more effective in capitals with lots of exclamation points. )
