I have to agree with JMS' sentiment: Alan Moore is a creative writer, vying for top spot as the best writer in comics in the minds of many (mine included). But Moore made a bad deal-- he made a succession of bad deals. How is it that Alan Moore's clout plus an agent or contract lawyer couldn't push the deal to be better? When I've seen bad deals, I've either taken them and looked at the strategic benefit; or I've walked away.
