"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."
