I’m no apologist for Alan Moore, but it seems like more than anything Alan Moore just wants to be left alone to pursue his other interests, and has largely retired from the comics industry (if not from the medium). An industry that has cost him money, friends, and a good night’s sleep, I might add. Good for him. It’d be nice if people left him to do that, rather than scaring up a new “Fuck you,” interview every six months. It doesn’t do anyone any good to put a great man into a bad mood and then capture it on tape, save for the bean-counters at Wired and Bleeding Cool, of course.
The main thing I think about this is that Tom Spurgeon, as usual, has the best take on the whole thing.
The other thing I think about this is: Can you imagine if Neil Gaiman actually gave interviews to the comics press, and let them know exactly where the bodies are buried? The masses would turn on him in a second.
