Understandable enough. So-what did you think of it?

Has anybody seen 'The Black Freighter' - the separate film from the comic book in Watchmen?

The DVDs on my 'must have' list, but I haven't actually bought it yet.

It was really, really good. Now I want to read V for Vendetta.

I've changed my mind about V for Vendetta. I don't like the artwork.

The tone was dark, but I thought it was quite good.

Have you thought about giving it another try?

I think Lloyd's art is an acquired taste, but I've always liked it, myself. It has a very film noir feel, I think. I do think it looked better in black and white, though.

I think From Hell might be his best work, so far. It's better than Watchmen, has more depth, is more interesting and well told, more thoughtful. All around amazing.

I think there's so much diversity in Moore's work that it's difficult to say what's his "best". It really depends on what mood you're in at the time, what kind of story you're after at that moment.

True, and that's why I think he's the best writer the medium's seen. That said, I think From Hell stands out in terms of depth, technique and quality. And from him, that's something.

Is there anything of Moore's you haven't read yet?

It's certainly incredibly well-researched.

A fair bit, actually. If that was aimed at me.

Jerusalem, at the moment. I still need to read Voice of the Fire all the way through. There's a lot of his comic work I own but haven't read, or can't find yet. Halo Jones I own on PDF, for example, but have only skimmed the first chapter.
I actually don't know that I want to read it all, to some degree. I like knowing there's still more of his work out there for me. I know that's weird.

Halo Jones is something every fan of Moore's work should read, in my opinion. But that could just be because it made an impact on me at a very impressionable age.

No, it's as near to objectively true as you can get with an opinion about fiction.

I bought beat up copies off Ebay, just to have reading copies. NOW, I just need the time.

No, never. For al the things I want to read, watch and do, there will never be enough. Slightly depressing.

It's a shame if 'stuff I want to enjoy' becomes 'stuff I have to cross off my to-do list'.
