Alan Moore killed the Blue Beetle

Okay, it's been said before. "Dark Knight Returns" and "Watchmen" always get blamed for ruining superhero comics, but I don't buy that. No, it's not even current fan-writers getting misinspired from the wrong bits of those fine works that has ruined comics; but nonetheless it is Alan Moore's fault.

Alan Moore and his chaos magick and his snake-worshipping. He dances around his mystic circle, writing comics, adding positive energy and positive works to the industry and when he suddenly stops.

BLAM!

We get ultra-crap.

Now that's not to say no one else is capable of writing good comics or that the only comics worth reading are by Alan Moore. Nonono. Though it is Alan Moore's positive contributions that help raise the industry and the genre. And his retirement has caused a psychic backlash that's caused a nose-dive for everyone and everything riding along. Eventually we'll all level out, but we'll be so far beneath where we were, we won't even see the sun anymore.

It happened before, you know. He left, we suffered, comics nearly died. Upon his return, there was resurgence in comics; tiny little flowers filled with comicy goodness blossomed in his footsteps. Now that he's gone? Well, let's put it this way, Byrne's Doom Patrol is not the worst book DC is putting out, by far. When did you ever think you could say that?

It's all Alan Moore's fault, well, his and the giant snake that told him to stop writing Tom Strong. Damn that snake.

That fucking snake was always a bad influence on Moore, and now he's complicit in the death of the Blue Beetle. He's really hurting comics. I think Lea Hernandez needs to amend her list.

Wow...the first entry by Tadhg on the blog.

I think Marv said it best when he said, "There is no settling down! This is blood for blood and by the gallons. This is the old days, the bad days, the all-or-nothing days. They're back!"
