Alan Moore On Superman Creators Siegel And Shuster’s Plight In ‘Occupy Comics’ #2 [Essay Excerpt]


The legendary and outspoken writer behind Watchmen, V for Vendetta, From Hell, and many more of the most memorable comic book stories of the last 30+ years, Alan Moore's feelings on creators' rights are well documented.
