    The Kevin Smith 'Fatman on Batman' podcast is well worth a listen, if you haven't already. I'd start at Ep 1 where he interviews Paul Dini. Then in 2 & 3 it's Mark Hammill. There's a Bruce Timm episode and a Walter Flanaghan one (which is awesome).

    You have to suffer him trying to sell you stuff for a few mins at the start then it's about 1-1.5 hours worth of Batman chat.

    Good shit.
    Kevin Smith needs to be kept away from comics. He can't write them for shit.
    That maybe so. But the podcast interviewing people involved in the universe is really good.

    An interview with Alan Moore. http://www.seraphemera.org/seraphemera_books/Alan_Moore_Interview.html

    Alan Moore doesn't want someone like me buying any of his stuff, ever again:

    If people do want to go out and buy these Watchmen prequels, they would be doing me an enormous favor if they would just stop buying my other books. When I think of my audience, I like to have good thoughts and think about how lucky I am to have one that is as intelligent as mine and as moral as mine.

    So, I wouldn't want to think that my readership were the kind of comic fans who are just addicted to a regular fix of their favorite character and, "Yeah well Jack Kirby he's not as good as he used to be, is he?" And, "Who cares that he created almost everything that Marvel have built their line upon?" And note, Jack Kirby, I'm saying, created them. I'm not even saying "Lee and Kirby." From my perspective, it looks like Jack did most of the work.

    The kind of readers who are prepared to turn a blind eye when the people who create their favorite reading material, their favorite characters, are marginalized or put to the wall--that's not the kind of readers I want. So, even if it means a huge drop in sales upon my other work, I would prefer it that way. I mean, there's no way I can police this, of course. But, I would hope that you wouldn't want to buy a book knowing that its author actually had complete contempt for you. So, I'm hoping that will be enough.

    He's such an arse.

    I didn't think it was possible for Alan Moore to disappear even further up his own arsehole.

    Talented bloke for sure, but it's hard to take the plea of "don't buy my books if you're a comics mong" seriously when he's already sat on a big stack of money and the result isn't going to affect him.

    He's been like that his entire life though and its made no difference to his sales at all. People will continue buying his books in droves as he writes superb comics.

    I would. If I was widely regarded as the best of my generation, every cunt would know about it, especially if I had got to the stage of my career where I could pull crap like this.

    More power to him.

    Just wanted to recommend Brian Talbot's "Alice in Sunderland". Really beautiful book with a very interesting story, especially for anyone who enjoys history.

    Just finished Long Halloween. Just spent half an hour reading up on theories! damn open endings ( i do actually like them). So shall re-read soon for another take on it.

    Shall i get dark victory next then? as i understand Y1, LH, and DV are like a sort of trilogy?

    He was about a decade ago. His recent stuff is fucking awful.

    His work on Wolverine has been some of the worst stuff done to the character since... well, ever.

    See also: Catwoman: When In Rome, which ties up some of the loose ends from LH and DV.

    I'm not sure if any of them are considered canon though, especially given DC's penchant for endlessly rebooting their continuity.

    Read DV first. Not sure they're tied into Miller's Year One, however. But LH, VD and WiR are all Loeb/Sale.

    Nope, definitely read LH first. It came first, and DV references it extensively.
  • Deleted user 28 July 2012 21:45:44
    He's read LH no?

    Watched Year One Animated. IGN murdered it and although I can understand their arguments (wooden dialogue) I think it was a really good effort. Also forgot just how fucking good Year One is.

    Year One is probably the best Batman comic ever written. It's the definitive starting point for the massive fucking gaylord

    @destroyohboy.
    Yeah, Alice in Sunderland is great. Far more cerebral than the usual caped spandex wonder.

    I couldn't sit through it. I don't know if Kevin Conroy has spoiled me for life but Batman/Bruce Wayne sounds plain wrong in it. The guy voicing Gordon is good though.

    Gordon is my favourite thing about Year One.

    Brian Cranston does the voice of Gordon I think. Keep meaning to watch it.

    Just started Batman on the New 52, really good so far! Big fan of Scott Snyder.
