Alan Moore Would Be Pissed



Well, it looks like DC has decided to bring characters from The Watchmen into their new rebooted universe. From what I understand, Dr. Manhattan will play some role as the creator of this timeline. I can’t imagine crusty old Alan Moore is very pleased.

Reboots are a classic comic company trick. They sweep all the old shit under the rug so new readers don’t feel overwhelmed by the need to dig into the back catalog. It’s a good strategy if you want that noob money.


Moore has long been my role model for how to age weirdly. At 40 he decided he was going to be a wizard. I think I might do something similar when I reach that vintage. Of course, I’ll have to come up with my own thing. You can’t seriously consider yourself an original if you’re biting on someone else’s snake go worship.
