Alan Moore Interview in Wired

Mar 2, 2009 by

In the previous episode the babblers spoke a little about the magic that is Watchmen, and the impending movie.  Here is an interview with Alan Moore, the writer of Watchmen (the comic, not the screenplay/script, etc – the real deal himself!) in Wired.  He talks about his movie adaptations (more specifically, why he hates them), superheroes and other things.

I could go on about Alan Moore (including the fact that he is a real-life magician – as in wizard, not as in Copperfield), but suffice to say that the man largely credited with deconstructing the whole superhero mythos (“I’m a super-powered go-dooder with cape & spandex” to a genuinely human level and [gasp!] superheroes can get killed! Who’d thought that’ll be possible?) is a genuinely interesting character with interesting things to say.

  1. Thank you for making me laugh – again! I listened to this while scanning and saving old family photos and the time just flew by. (I guess this could come under the heading of helpful household hints?)

    Like you, Donny, I used to enjoy Stephen King and my theory is that he was killed by the man in the van with the dog and the fish and that Tabitha has been writing his books since then.

    Anyway, I love listening to the four of you babble and I’m so glad to have you back.

    Thanks Still for all the kind words. The King fanatic among us is actually Bjorn (actually, I should say ex-fanatic, but he still harbours a soft spot for King esq.)

    Haha! Actually helpful household hints indeed! 🙂
