Frank Miller, currently in the process of ruining absolutely any respect any human being ever had for him, recently posted a cranky and hilariously clueless rant about the Occupy movement about how they were all whiny hipsters and Al Qaeda was laughing and insert Fox News editorial here. Frank, we understand that you think writing a few good Batman comics gives you absolute authority over the planet, but it really does help to do some research.
Anyway, Alan Moore, who has been ripping on Miller for his politics and overblown tendencies since the early ’80s, recently weighed in with this:
Well, Frank Miller is someone whose work I’ve barely looked at for the past twenty years. I thought the Sin City stuff was unreconstructed misogyny, 300 appeared to be wildly ahistoric, homophobic and just completely misguided. I think that there has probably been a rather unpleasant sensibility apparent in Frank Miller’s work for quite a long time.
Moore goes on to say:
[Occupy is] a completely justified howl of moral outrage and it seems to be handled in a very intelligent, non-violent way, which is probably another reason why Frank Miller would be less than pleased with it.
Yes, Frank, you just got served by a snake worshiping English hippie. The best way to settle this? Dance battle. Definitely dance battle.
