“Well, Frank Miller is someone whose work I’ve barely looked at for the past twenty years. I thought the Sin City stuff was unreconstructed misogyny, 300 appeared to be wildly ahistoric, homophobic and just completely misguided. 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. It’s a completely justified howl of moral outrage and it seems to be handled in a very intelligent, non-violent way, which is probably another reason why Frank Miller would be less than pleased with it. I’m sure if it had been a bunch of young, sociopathic vigilantes with Batman make-up on their faces, he’d be more in favour of it.”

-Alan Moore in an interview with Honest Publishing on Frank Miller’s anti-Occupy quote. I will now be using “unreconstructed” as a way of saying “obvious.”

Frank Miller is crazy. He wrote some good Batman stories, added a lot of valuable stuff to the canon. But he’s crazy.

Related: There’s also this interesting Guardian interview with Alan Moore about his Guy Fawkes mask and the Occupy protests.
