Who cares? You always have to put up with more crap when dealing with the best, Hollywood knows this.
The bottom line, for me at least, is for reasons having nothing to do with the creative talent of the artist they no longer have him producing work. If I were a shareholder I'd be upset about how in the long run, this is a bad business decision. I don't care if he wanted to use one of the DC executives as a footstool if it kept him cranking out great books. They took a very shortsighted approach in handling this.
yes, there are primadonnas who are fantastic, but besides Charlie Sheen with his upcoming FX show, what actor famous for shitting on any studio he's worked with in the press is still working?
The bottom line, for me, is that Moore has become a ranting hypocrite who insults not only DC and Marvel executives at every turn but also the creative forces behind the product. He basically says "no one right now is doing anything worth while, and if it is good its only because I did it first" pissing on the creators who write books, but also the fans that like them.
What would Moore say about Robinson's own work? He took some public domain characters and changed them around. He changed Dorothy into something Baum wouldn't recognize. Wrote a book that was a twist on classic horror, and wrote some Superman. To paraphrase Butters' sidekick "Moore did it!"
I wish Robinson well, I never read any of his books and often forget his name so I'll probably not check out any future product, especially if its touted as "brought to you by the writer of I, Zombie" - but none of that takes away from the fact that Moore has spent years telling me that I shouldn't read Hellblazer because some one else is writing something he created.
Fuck Moore, he can keep Fish-head Rapeman, or whatever his next last comic book ever will be, I'll keep reading Fables...a book with public domain creations doing things they weren't initially set up to do.
oh, fuck, "Moore did it!"
