>>106915607>Dc can’t be this conceited over a shitty watchmen fan fiction
But they are, I apologize since I can't recall the names but I recall someone mentioning all this kicked off when back around the Watchmen movie they called up Moore and offered to hand over the rights if he'd do a sequel.
He flat out said no, fuck the money, the rights, just hung up and went back to his spliff like turning away a telemarketer. The sheer audacity must have set someone off because ever since they've done everything to not only keep Watchmen brand afloat with the a range of prequel material, which didn't fly so good, the TV series and this, the introduction of Watchmen properties into DCU proper, starting with the insinuation all their problems were actually due to Blueman and Johns via Lex of all people mocking Veidt's plan as silly, plus there's also been various other Moore material popping up in relevance and inclusion like Tom Strong with the Terrifics and Promethea giving the JLA a pat on the back.
It's war, anon, they might not be winning as effortlessly as they imagined, he might barely be paying attention unless someone goes out their way to let him know the tally, but I take it someone up top is just intent and content if they can have the record show come his passing on that they got him, they took his ideas and his name and did what they liked even if he didn't like it.
I don't know how on board Johns is on all that, but it's pretty clear he has full clearance to carry on as long as it takes. Because the alternative, letting it go, would be one for Moore against the company without even trying, and they can't have that on the scoreboard.
