BRUBAKER: Really, though, the saddest part for me is the “fuck Alan Moore; he signed a shitty contract” thing. That’s really, really sad. When JMS at the Chicago Comicon — or wherever that was — said, “Did Alan Moore get a shitty contract? Yes. Jack Kirby got a shitty contract, too.” That really, to me, when I was reading that I was like “Holy shit.” Siegel’s and Shuster’s and Kirby’s shitty deals are now being used to defend a project as opposed to…SPURGEON: … indict a company.
Ed Brubaker and Tom Spurgeon on ‘Before Watchmen,’ Alan Moore and creators’ rights.
Really great and lengthy interview. Like, really great. And really lengthy. But worth the time.
