This just in – Alan Moore not a fan of Frank Miller’s politics.

...knows the score.

Stunning scenes – Alan Moore doesn’t really like Frank Miller’s work and suspects that his personal politics are a bit, well, suspect.

In other news, Ken Loach probably really doesn’t care for Michael Bay’s oeuvre.

More seriously, is anybody really surprised by this? ¬†Miller’s message ends at “Might is Right”, noir tropes and lone big men with bigger guns clearing up the streets as violently as possible – it’s not as though he has much in common with the Midlands’ most pre-eminent warlock and weird-beard genius.

Sweet hat, crap politics.

I have yet to forgive Miller for his singularly crass and incoherent take on “The Spirit” and I suspect few reading this will have much time for him either. ¬†He is the personification of the old curmudgeon standing on his lawn and yelling at kids to go away and should probably be taken as such – a relatively harmless and irrelevant old duffer whose schtick is tired and increasingly laughable.

As much as I read The Guardian daily, when it comes to nerd pop culture stuff like this, they’re never slow to find the most obvious angle and pursue it ad nauseam.
