Thanks for this, i'll keep a lookout for The Terrifics.

Only good thing to come out of Milestone was Static, so not too hyped for the new imprint.

Did you actually read any of the books or are you saying that because you only recall Static's show?

Xombi, Hardware and Icon were all pretty great. Blood Syndicate was a little hit or miss for me.

    Yeah, just wait until he hears about the new Tom Strong movie....Starring Tom Cruise!!

Maybe I should take that down in case it gives somebody bad ideas.

In their defense he's easily pssed off.
I never got behind his while 'my characters are untouchable' shtick.

I am more disturbed by his willingness to cast aside longtime friends for imagined slights and then drag them through the mud publicly.

I've said it before.  As a write,r the man is brilliant.  As a human being, he's a pissy asshole.

being a brilliant artist and being a pissy asshole seem to go hand in hand a lot.

He terminated his friendship with David Lloyd because Lloyd didn’t thank him in an obsequious enough manner for the money Lloyd made off of the V for Vendetta movie. Nevermind the fact that Lloyd was the co-creator. ::)

Dave Gibbons didn’t call him after the Watchmen premiere, or first screening or whatever it was that he was supposed to call Moore after

Moore ended the friendship right then and there

Reading this and the rest of the responses, i guess i'm not in the minority for once.

Moore later admitted that Gibbons might have been intimidated by a Moore previously telling him that if Gibbons spoke to him about Watchmen for ANY reason he’d end their friendship.

It’s a fucking tightrope.

This is why I prefer Gaiman. He's just as good of a writer but also seems like a nice guy.

I disagree. You can't be my friend if you don't wear deodorant and/or shit your pants regularly.

Until you break the news to him that libraries are largely obsolete and not free for non-world famous writers.
