Dec 28, 2009 by

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.

Who’d thought that’ll be possible?) is a genuinely interesting character with interesting things to say.
