We all knew Alan Moore wouldn’t be happy with the Watchmen prequels.
But now another comic book author has stepped and called the prequels “unnecessary.” Mark Millar says he doesn’t see the need for them and that he has no plans to read them.
“The books might be good, they might not. But I sort of feel like if I want to read Watchmen, I’ll read the original one. To me it feels unnecessary, and I’m saying this as a guy who wroteSuperman, and Captain America, and The Ultimates. So we all do it I guess,” he said.
“I’m loyal. I love [Alan] Moore and I love Watchmen. My curiosity isn’t so much that I’d pick it up. But I don’t blame the guys for doing it. I guess we’re all guilty of it in comics, but that’s what’s nice about creator owns. It feels a bit more honest – I make it up, I get the money, and nobody comes to take it off me.”
