Alan Moore Rocks. He's the godfather of all that is black and dark int he goth world. He is the man whom Trent Reznor scared of at nighttime because of his dark genius. And he's got these incredible silver claws. Where does he get those?

It's popular knowledge that Moore was disappointed with the "V..." adaptation, but now knowing that he didn't even watch the movie doesn't serve to increase my respect for the man. Blind criticism is just blind criticism. I'm more curious of the illustrators feelings towards the movie, since it really is more of a direct translation of their visual medium.
