I'm not saying I'm surprised it has had any impact or some impact, but so many threads and such bitterness already before the books are out, yes a little bit surprised.
I guess the backlash against Alan Moore and Watchmen just doesn't compute because I'm a big fan of him. It's not like I'm reading or writing theses about the book's importance or anything, because I'm just a fan of his stuff and that sort of thing can ruin your enjoyment of something.
I guess the use of the properties doesn't shock me either, and I don't see how it would ever change my impression of the Moore book. Christian already underscored the tip of the iceberg of reconstituted literary hash.
The backlash has made me want to buy them, though, when do they come out?
