“Alan just wants to get paid more money, that’s it. Sorry Alan. I got my body of work out of Alan Moore, he doesn’t intimidate me, I don’t put him on a pedestal like Jack Kirby and Frank Miller,. He’s just a guy who wants to get paid, and he cuts deals for himself that he doesn’t like down the line, and then he gets whiny and cries about it...Hey man, he worked for me for two years, I was quiet for like ten years. And then I watched him burn every other bridge, and I go “Hmm.” Although we didn’t have a falling out with him. He just stopped working with us, because he now wanted to invest in his new universe with Wildstorm comics, and again, like I said, OOPS! That went up in flames. He gives 'temperamental artist' a new meaning.”
I never bought this, and told Rob so on a Rama thread.
Moore's thing with Wildstorm didn't go up in flames. He walked away because he didn't like DC/Time Warner aspect regarding the V for Vendetta movie. How does that paint a picture of a guy that's just in it for the money?
Moore doesn't take the money that studios give him for the movies they make of his creations. He usually gives it to the artist from what I've heard. (Rob dismissed this as not being a lot of money). Maybe it isn't, but you would think a guy so greedy that he wanted to write more and more comics would take every paycheck sent to him.
Marvel would probably give Alan Moore a corner of their universe if Moore wanted to write for them.
This just screams of Rob wanting attention. If Alan Moore REALLY wanted money, he would go to DC and tell them he had an idea for Watchmen 2, or V for Vendetta 2. Then he would pimp himself like crazy with the new Watchmen movie instead of distancing himself from it.
The story just doesn't jive for me.
