COMICS: Alan Moore Rejects Offer For Watchmen Rights In Exchange For Work On Sequels!
The legendary comic book writer who last year demanded removal of his name from the Watchmen movie adaptation, and even refused royalties, has now spoken out about DC approaching him with the offer of the rights of the characters in exchange for further work on the characters.
Alan Moore has revealed that he rejected an offer from DC to return the rights to Watchmen in exchange for prequels and sequels featuring the characters...
"They offered me the rights to Watchmen back, if I would agree to some dopey prequels and sequels," Moore told Underwire in a recent interview. "So I just told them that if they said that 10 years ago, when I asked them for that, then yeah it might have worked."
"But these days I don't want Watchmen back. Certainly, I don't want it back under those kinds of terms."
"I don’t even have a copy of Watchmen in the house anymore", he went on to reveal indicating that his feud with the company wont be coming to an end anytime soon. "The comics world has lots of unpleasant connections, when I think back over it, many of them to do with Watchmen. I’m pretty much out of comics now. I really want nothing to do with it."
