    Comics these days really do seem like they are written with TPB format in mind. Kinda sucks, but hey, I do love me some trades.

    Yeah, "The Button" Batman/Flash crossover wasn't bad by any means but it was a letdown. It just confirmed what everyone already knew since DCU Rebirth started over a year ago. And Barry freaking failed for not being able to remember Jay Garric, the first Flash, the Flash Barry friggin' named himself after.

    The Logos tried to corrupt the new Seeder of worlds, Lifebringer Galactus. Also Logos killed all but one of the Celestials. The Queen of Nevers managed to save one of the Celestrials, the One Above All.
    I understood literally none of that. But I assume it's from Ultimates. And since Al Ewing is top dog at Marvel right now (imo) probably gonna read it.

    Correct, the Ultimates are involved. I glossed over some major details. Lets say it involves forces getting fucked over that Thanos with the Infinite Gantlet didn't have the powers to mess with.

    It's the way Barry is being written lately for that failure, the editorial and writing team would rather string fans along than go for plot progression. Readers are already in the know but DC is obviously milking it more than they should. Shame as the premise has sooooo much potential to really eclipse their previous reboot (or whatever they wanna call it) efforts since I myself am looking forward to seeing the JSA return to the books.

    That and Dr. Manhattan's blue wang (no homo) LOLOLOL

    from a financial standpoint, it's much better than doing retcons especially for a series with a built-in readership such as DC's trinity (supes/bats/ww) or Marvel's super groups (avengers/x-men) just to name a few.

    reboots let them fuck around with the status quo for a book or even multiple titles without hurting character histories (too much) and losing sales since older readers who lose interest are replaced by newer readers who may like the revision they made.

    The Watchmen stuff DC is doing is disappointing. You compare it to actual Watchmen and it pales in comparison - and they're pissing further on the back of Alan Moore. Hopefully at some point they do right by him, but that day will likely never come.

    On the plus side, I've been promised Miracleman #23 will be out some time some day. :sad:

    I have to say this, Fuck Alan Moore.

    He a good writer and he does do great comics, but with his attitude and personality I not just don't mind he gets pissed on, I am glad he gets pissed on.
    Alan Moore is no god. Fuck him.

    Alan Moore is a hermit.
    hermits are old and grumpy and do not give a shit with what the world wants.
    they just want to be left alone.

    please leave alan moore alone.

    Alan Moore often gets angry over nothing. He hates it when his work is adapted even when it's faithful to the source material. He shitted on DC for using his old Green Lantern stories to build up Blackest Night.

    Alan is just grumpy. I think the only adaptation he liked was the "what do you give the man who has everything" cartoon version.
    "You embarrass me," said Shadow, smiling. Then Shadow took his penis out and picked Cream up. "Let me charge up for a super ejaculation!" Shadow laid Cream down on the ground and then took his penis with him, which was already huge and shaking with sex energy, and found Cream's Piggy Bank, which was full of coins and dollars and things to save up for money, so she could buy what she wanted when she had enough inside it. Shadow took it and using his muscular penis, smashed a hole right through the piggy bank so now it was sitting on top of his penis like a hat. Shadow's penis looked like it belonged in a fashion show.

    he has tried to distance himself from adaptations of his work (such as v for vendetta, the league of extraordinary gentlemen and watchmen to name a few) and ultimately turned down large sums of money on offer to have his input and/or be involved to some capacity with the films.

    his main point of contention would be the liberties the films take on the source material i.e. his work on the books, which he despises since he sees comic books as a special medium that film will not be able to express or execute well. apparently, this seems to be the case on most of the films that were based on moore's work. slightly less on watchmen as that movie was almost a panel-by-panel recreation of the book sans the plot twist change they did to "contemporize" the story LOLOLOL

    imo, his body of work is very compelling to read. shit, his work on supreme polished a crappy superman-inspired character and made the darn book readable.

    See if you refused to be a paid consultant for the adaptions, you really don't have the right to complain how the adaption process goes as you had your chance to give input and refused it.
    Moore will never be happy with any adaptions of his work as he never happy with his own work in the first place.

    Moore also gets very short very quick with fans. Even if the fans in question are perfectly behaved and hold Moore up as a god.
    He gets short with everyone, then gets mad when people stop liking him for his terrible temper.

    well. that's the issue with comic to film adaptations: it's trying to execute a fantastical story from one format to another and crossing your fingers in the hopes it works.

    pretty much hit-or-miss as film history will show but it's gotten better over the years.
    if moore was even slightly open to the idea of enlightening directors and screenwriters to ideas on how to PROPERLY adapt his work then it might have been for the better of the movie.

    but yeah, moore fucking hates hollywood for some reason lololol[

    You can hate Hollywood for all you want, the reality is the Movies sells books (and merch). So Comic books has to get in bed with Hollywood to make any Bank.
    You can't change the system by isolating your self from it, and Moore wants to change the system, but he thinks he can do so by insulating himself entirely.

    And his passive aggressive behavior is only hurting himself in the long run. It going to come to the point where DC and other publishers will refuse to work with Moore and he has to go independent.
    And Moore hates indies as well as he looks down on those who are trying to struggle.

    So picked up Teen Titans Special #1, which is the finale to the Lazarus Contract.
    Damian Wayne needs to be tossed off a building and land on a bike with no seat. That little crap stain stopped Kid Flash's heart in the past and now Wally needs a pacemaker to support his weakened heart. Why must Speed Force King always suffer?

    Moore isn't trying to change the system. He's against the adaptions because he feels his stories can only work in the comics and wants them to stay in that medium. I personally believe that he's wrong.

    I don't think he wants to change the system. He simply has his own set of principles. It's more to do with how Hollywood as an entity has attacked him and dishonored his work. It's about respect. The whole thing with League of Extraordinary Gentlemen and the lawsuit that Fox dragged him into was a big breaking point. Then there was the time the Wachowskis and/or Warner Bros. tried to use his name to hype up the V for Vendetta movie. And his issue with Watchmen is probably more to do with the comic and ownership. After DC swindled him, it's hard to hold it against him that he's been embittered against them.

    Alan Moore doesn't hate indies. He supports them and he's published mags that help new creators that are struggling to put their work out there. All he does now is indie/alternative when it comes to comics. (Like the aforementioned Cthulhu fish rape comics.) DC and Marvel would love to have a chance to work with Moore again. He has no interest in those kinds of comics. It's his choice. He doesn't need them. They may not need him, either, but they would want him. Marvel went out of their way to reprint his Miracleman stuff fairly recently.

    I may not agree with Moore's beliefs and every single cause he champions, and I may not particularly enjoy his recent comics as much as his older ones, but I can sympathize with his views on the corporations that have wronged him. I also don't think he's quite as angry old man as people seem to think. Some of his interviews in print don't really do a good job of showing his tone of voice. A lot of the excerpts picked up by many of your standard comics news sites just look for controversial quotations. I've listened to some interviews/podcasts with him and he sounds like a normal person with a good deal of self-awareness.

    I've been thinking about getting into Wonder Woman with some more of the TPBs. I picked up Wonder Woman by George Perrez Book One months ago but haven't read it yet. I've heard Greg Rucka has done an awesome job on WW in the past and I've been tempted to pick up the first two TPBs of Rebirth WW.

    The best Wonder Woman runs are definitely the Rucka one from the early 2000s and the Azz/Chiang run from a few years ago. I've only read the FCBD issue of Rucka's new run, but I'm gonna probably buy it as a trade someday. I'm a Rucka fan.

    This is the way both mediums have been commercialized over the years. Back then, comic books sold on the strength of the stories it told and the artwork that came with it. Similarly, films we're watched multiple times due to a compelling plot and amazing visuals/cinematography. They made bank on their own merits.

    Historically, Moore has gone independent a couple if times. He worked on AD 2000 before and that was an indie publication years ago iirc lololol
    Going indie is old hat for Alan Moore.
    Being British and from an older generation of writers, he has been very critical of the way modern writers can/are manipulated by money. He sought to empower writers by sticking to his guns and improving his craft over the years. He's influenced Neil gaiman and Joss whedon among others to write compelling material that they can be proud of instead of going for a cash grab with no growth.

    There's a reason why his work on books like the killing joke is highly regarded. The guy is a hermit.

    Steve Ditko will out-hermit Alan Moore any day of the week. Case in point, you know enough about Alan Moore to actually have this conversation.

    Read Venom #150 last week. 150? Um okay. They had to toss in the Venom Origin mini to get that number... Anyway, aside from Eddie calling his symbiote "My love" constantly in the main story which was just weird I enjoyed it. The Michelenie / Ron Lim back up story stole the show for nostalgia's sake. There's a story about how Flash lost the symbiote too.

    will make an effort to do research on him soon.
    moore on the other hand ,really made a fan out of me and got me reading most of his work that i could get my hands on since i found his storytelling very engaging and progressive.

    omg, i just finished secret empire #3 and it is riveting.
    pym/ultron was very disturbing and the attack on the atlantean temple just raised the stakes. again.

    my thoughts on thanos #7
    thanos has hit rock bottom and he is pathetic: eating rats [well space rats in this case] and getting kicked around by scavengers. fucking trash scavengers.
    almost reminds me of how he was portrayed in thanos:rising which was a very revealing take on the character.
    so good.

    jeff lemire is ridiculous right now.
    this and his current run on old man logan [considering he's picking up after bendis on the latter title] is really great

    I listen to the podcasts on Spidermancrawlspace.com all the time. They used to do a lot of interviews with Spider-Man artists and writers. That rarely happens these days but they do review current Spider-Man comics and tell you everything, and I mean everything that happens in them. So since I am a fan of Spider-Man but don't like Amazing Spider-Man at the moment, I listen in, listen to how bad it is and it keeps me on top of things. FOR FREE!

    http://www.spidermancrawlspace.com/

    The guys there are pretty cool. They had a live feed on one of their podcasts. I talked to them live on YouTube. They even called me by my name, Anthony! I mean, there were only 13 of us watching it live but it was fun! Spidey Friends, GO FOR IT! Lol!

    The reason I bring this up is because every now and then they do a bit called "Ditko News." They tell you what's going on with Steve Ditko. There's almost nothing to talk about. It's basically him turning down and rejecting interviews or slamming doors in reporter's faces. We do know that he is getting paid by Disney for the use of his stuff, and it's for a lot of money. Because a neighbor accidentally got one of his checks one the time. This allows him to lead his quiet life.

    Though yeah he's a total recluse. No wife, no children, that we know of anyway. He doesn't do interviews at all. Every now and then he surfaces with a strange and confusing online rant about how bad comic books are today. He still creates comics but no one knows how to get them. It's not like he's going to go to Diamond and have them distribute his work. You have to be part of some bizarre inner circle of friends to even get his comics.

    Well hey I'm sure those Hollywood checks and other royalties means he can do whatever he wants these days.

    It's funny that in Moore's Watchmen comic, Rorschach is based on Steve Ditko's The Question character. Only Moore had Rorschach speak exactly how Ditko speaks in his confusing conspiracy laced dialog. It's like he channeled Ditko through Rorschach instead of The Question.

    Compared to Ditko, Alan Moore is Kim Kardashian.

    Stop shitting on Moore if you read garbage like Bendis.
    Loeb, Howard Mackie and Bendis are the most awful writers that were allowed to put their hands on mainstream comics ever.

    I mean there's probably worse authors, but those motherfuckers had long lasting runs on prestigious series and some people even think their shit is good.

    Also Frank Miller is hella overrated.

    Loeb, Howard Mackie and Bendis are the most awful writers that were allowed to put their hands on mainstream comics ever.

    I mean there's probably worse authors, but those motherfuckers had long lasting runs on prestigious series and some people even think their shit is good.

    Also Frank Miller is hella overrated.

    What the fuck are you talking about? No one was talking about Alan Moore's work. The discussion was about him as a person.

    Agreed.

    As a talented artist Moore is great, as a person not so much.
    Stop shitting on Moore

    He a shitty person and for that he loses respect.

    Alan Moore is old af, he's British [no offense to any Brits, but their sarcasm is well-known] and he has the professional pedigree to back up his attitude.

    IF [big IF] and when he dies, he'll be remembered for his body of work and for being difficult to tolerate as a human being lolololol

    I'm curious. What are the things Alan Moore has done to make him such a despicable human being?

    He's not despicable. He's just a grumpy old asshole.
