“He won 25 years ago when he became the brand.
No matter what’s happened to the comics industry in that time, however it’s changed and however it’s stayed the same, the reversal has taken place in the minds of the audience. The creators have become more important than the characters. The people who read comics then and are confused about what comics are any good now know what brand to look for and it’s not DC.
Alan Moore sells comics whether they’re superhero or pulp hero, pornographic or rambling guides to magic, cop soap operas or Victorian serial killers. He’s taken his audience with him.
And that creator-led approach, following the guys who come up with the stories rather than the guys who own the copyright, has become the norm.”
