As for the readers, I have to say that if you are a reader that just wanted your favorite characters on tap forever, and never cared about the creators, then actually you're probably not the kind of reader that I was looking for. [...] If people do want to go out and buy these Watchmen prequels, they would be doing me an enormous favor if they would just stop buying my other books. [...] I mean, there's no way I can police this, of course. But, I would hope that you wouldn't want to buy a book knowing that its author actually had complete contempt for you.
