It's on the front page of Yahoo! right now...I'm sure this will do wonders for the industry.

I guess I haven't been paying attention, because I didn't know that's what the book was about...wow.

Very even, fair, and balanced response from St Ormands. Impressed.

Ugh.  This reminds me of those maquettes that depict characters like Dorothy and Alice as leather wielding whores or drugged out looking things that I think are pretty gross.

"I don't really see that you can ban anything in this day and age."

Oh really?

It's a misuse of the word 'ban' in Moore's quote. 

If I wrote, self-published and tried to sell some Harry Potter stories.  Would people accuse JK Rowling of 'banning' me from doing so?

Edited because I misread a quote in the article.

This is the first time I've been glad to see someone use the term "graphic novel" instead of "comic book" in the mainstream media.  If only they hadn't said "comics writer Alan Moore", it might have been a good way to abolish the use of the term gn to prevent embarrassment over referencing "comic books".

Got my copy on order. Looking forward to it more than any other comic in quite some time.

I hope he has a good lawyer - to sue the lawyers who told the publishers there wouldn't be any copyright problems!
