Steve Moore RIP

Post by tony ingram on Wed Mar 19, 2014 6:07 pm

Veteran British comics writer Steve Moore, creator of Tharg's Future Shocks, Axel Pressbutton and  Marvel UK's Abslom Daak: Dalek Killer and Kroton the Cyberman, and frequent contributor to Warrior, 2000AD, Dr Who Monthly, Hulk Comic and a surprising number of other titles, and mentor to Alan Moore (no relation) has died aged 64. Another of the unsung heroes of comics taken far too young.

Steve will apparently be getting a short obituary in the next issue of Doctor Who Magazine.

I'll keep an eye out to see if the Telegraph does an obituary for him.

Did you folks here about Alan Moore saying people should boycott the new Hercules movie, which was based on a comic series written by Steve Moore?

Yes, because Alan reckons Steve didn't want his name associated with the project and they've put him in the credits. There is some debate as to what actually happened...

I wouldn't put it past Alan to have talked to Steve post-mortem and ascertained his opinion.

Unfortunately, Alan seems to have based his view of the situation on comments from Steve thayt nobody else can verify, which seem to be at odds with Dave Elliot's recollections.

Wherever Steve is now, I doubt he cares that much about whether or not his name appears in the long list of names at the end of a movie that nobody watches apart from you and me because we're hoping there'll be an extra scene afterwards (and then it turns out to be some random mutant called Apocalypse I've never heard of building pyramids, which was lame).

Apocalypse is actually quite a significant character in the X-titles, and has been for about 25 years. He's sort of Doctor Doom level.

I do like villains who put their initials on their costume for ease of identification. Remember Galactus with a big 'G' on his chest? As though anyone was going to not recognize the big purple guy as Galactus...

I dunno... I think the big 'A' makes him look too similar to Captain America.

Well, he was originally going to go with a big "L" for his first name, "Laestrygones", but people kept mispronouncing it or saying the big "L" stood for "Loser".

Also, As are better for costume symbols because they're symmetrical. No, seriously. Think about it. A 'G' for 'Galactus' just isn't a good idea.

In fact, neither is Superman's 'S', but he gets away with it 'cos he's had it since the 1930s so it's traditional. But the 'W' in Wonder Woman's metal bra looks much better.

Yes, but Superman just wouldn't suit a metal bra.

I don't see why he couldn't wear a metal band across his chest.

It takes a strong, confident man to embrace his feminine side.

I thought the New 52 version already did that?

The John Romita Jr. version is really atrocious.

It is actually even worse than everything else Romita Jr has ever drawn.
