>>110224897>this is all just because i love the tagline "He loves peace enough to kill for it"
That reminds me, there was an interview with Moore in Comic Book Artist years ago:
CBA: When I was a kid, I grew up in a rather left-wing environment, and I remember seeing The Peacemaker with the tag-line "He loves peace so much he's willing to fight for it." I thought, "Ugh. Too reactionary for me," and I_passed it by.
Alan: When I first read that, I thought, "Well, that's stupid!" [laughter] I was only about 10 or so, and I hadn't really grown up in a left-wing family—my family voted labor, and that was back when Labor was a socialist party—but it was a working-class family, probably not a very well-educated one, and so their political opinions didn't run very deep, but even so, yeah, the idea that "He loves peace so much he's willing to fight for it," [laughter] I could see the holes in that one straightaway.
CBA: Keith Giffen modified the tag line to read "He loves peace so much he's willing to kill for it." [laughs]
Alan: Bomb, murder, assassinate! Because we're not doing The Peacemaker or The Question, we could be much more extreme with all these characters. We probably couldn't have had The Question living in a completely filthy slum room and being mentally disturbed, who had a personal odor problem, and be a little guy who was ugly—you would've had to have had Vic Sage, successful TV commentator. http://www.twomorrows.com/comicbookartist/articles/09moore.html
