Geez Admiral, let's not get personal.
I'm just tired of hearing about how brilliant and mind-blowing the stupid graphic novel is supposed to be. It's good, it's dynamic, it is not the be all and end all of comic books.

To be as good as its defenders claim it would have to be better than something like Maus. Seriously?

The movie is a great adaptaion. If you want exactly what Moore put in the original, tell his highness to climb down off his high horse and write the adaptation himself. Failing that, you got the most faithful adaptation you're ever going to see, and there's really nothing wrong with it.
