I came across this and thought I would share. It's a sad story, even allowing for the Alan Moore of it all. It's an amazing shame that someone could put in the amount of work Steve Moore seems to have put into his series of Hercules comics, only to have them mangled by the likes of Brett Ratner, not get paid, and then not even get his wish to have his name removed from the movie and in fact have his death used to promote the movie. Even allowing for Alan Moore's own reasons for wanting to stick it to the movie industry, it's a story that is all too familiar to anyone with a passing knowledge of the comic book industry.
I think it is a good read, if it is old news or a similar to something already posted let me know and it will vanish.
