Here’s a handy list of all the comics makers who participated in Before Watchmen. I refuse to buy or read anything by these folks: Neal Adams, Rafael Albuquerque, Michael Allred, Brian Azzarello, Lee Bermejo, Jordi Bernet, Tim Bradstreet, Massimo Carnevale, Cliff Chiang, Michael Cho, Amanda…
There’s a lot of creators on this list whose work I like but seriously there has to be a better way to make a dollar that on something like Before Watchmen. I won’t be reading or buying the books of any of these people for a long time.
Dan, I love you, but Alan Moore is not worth losing even two of those creators.
okay, yeah, the way DC has treated their creators has been terrible. but please stop acting like Alan Moore is the God of All Comic Creators. it’s not right the way he was treated, but he’s not all that fantastic either.
and aside from that, this is very immature way of going about this. you don’t know why the comics makers listed participated in this project- maybe they liked the idea, sure, or maybe they just wanted to get work done to pay rent. don’t ‘boycott’ creators, that doesn’t help. boycott the companies, not the workers.
