Alan Moore Interview
Superhero movies are a "blight" and he wants no connection to comic books - or so interview has it at Deadline Hollywood
I’m not so interested in comics anymore, I don’t want anything to do with them. I had been doing comics for 40-something years when I finally retired. When I entered the comics industry, the big attraction was that this was a medium that was vulgar, it had been created to entertain working class people, particularly children. The way that the industry has changed, it’s ‘graphic novels’ now, it’s entirely priced for an audience of middle class people. I have nothing against middle class people but it wasn’t meant to be a medium for middle aged hobbyists.
Moore voices an analysis on the current health of the industry, and what he says isn't positive: pre-Covid, the industry was in jeopardy, but getting the business out of Covid alive may never happen. This isn't too far removed from other voices who have said there are serious infrastructure problems to the business of selling comic books.

'I used to be excited whenever Hollywood or TV was going to make an adaptation of my favorite books and comic books. Now I'm afraid.'
