Quote of the Day: Before and after Watchmen

I tend to take this latest development as a kind of eager confirmation that they are still apparently dependent on ideas that I had 25 years ago.

– Alan Moore on the news that DC has announced a series of Watchmen prequels, blatantly to cash in on that god-awful Zach Snyder film.

I find it difficult to bring myself to care about this. Watchmen is a high watermark of comic storytelling and I don’t see how these cash-ins will be anything other than forgettable and derivative. That said, am would be mildly interested if someone can tell me how on Earth they are going to justify that splotch of blood on Comedian’s mask.
