If you want to see what the modern master of comics has to say about superheroes, comics, homage, film and more, check out this Wired interview. There’s a bit of his thoughts on filmed adaptations of his works (in short: he has no use for them), and more about his upcoming “League of Extraordinary Gentlemen” series from Top Shelf.
He comes off bitter but brilliant, for the most part, with a different opinion on current comics than the one I have, anyway. (That said, he admits to not particularly following mainstream comics anymore.)
A funny comment from Moore about ending up working for DC after WildStorm was purchased:
When I returned to work for—well, I didn’t return. I was kind of press-ganged. I had DC buying the company I had just signed contracts with, which is flattering in one way and very creepy in another. It’s like being stalked by a very rich demented girlfriend who can just buy your entire street in order to be close to you.
