Alan Moore

Alan Moore

Alan Moore is the Rasputin-like madman behind some of the comic industry’s most critically acclaimed graphic novels. Many of them have been adapted into feature films, and without fail Moore has condemned them as bastardizations of his creations. From Hell, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, V for Vendetta, Watchmen…all shite movies according to the man. (Granted, he was right on one of those occasions.) So how do you combat an industry that continually messes with your work? By eliminating the middle man and making the films yourself of course. To that end Moore has joined forces with Mitch Jenkins to create a series of short films. Moore writes them, Jenkins films them, and presumably everybody’s happy in the end. The first of their collaborations is called Jimmy’s End and will be hitting the web at the end of the month. Check out the first teaser below.

It’s the most anticipated movie of 2009, and it’s finally coming to theaters. Zack Snyder’s grim adaptation of the classic graphic novel may run 163 minutes, but it’s still a visual sight to behold. And why not behold it with Dr. Manhattan’s giant blue wang in your face and a drink in hand.

Before The Dark Knight came out we thought we had a lot of marketing materials. We thought the same prior to the release of Iron Man.
