Allan Moore responds to Frank Miller

I liked Frank Miller’s Batman a lot, and some of his early works, such as Ronin, as well. Then I didn’t really enjoy the later stuff, and what he did to the Spirit was unforgivable, Recently I glossed over his anti-OWS rant, which (a) doesn’t make much sense in the first place and (b) is on the wrong side of history.

 

Then, I came across Allan Moore (one of my comics idols) responding to it, and all I can say is, nailed it.

And here’s the money quote, which stands on its own, regardless of Miller: “As far as I can see, the Occupy movement is just ordinary people reclaiming rights which should always have been theirs. I can’t think of any reason why as a population we should be expected to stand by and see a gross reduction in the living standards of ourselves and our kids, possibly for generations, when the people who have got us into this have been rewarded for it; they’ve certainly not been punished in any way because they’re too big to fail. I think that the Occupy movement is, in one sense, the public saying that they should be the ones to decide who’s too big to fail.

 

Couldn’t agree more with Moore. (sorry, couldn’t resist)
