Like the respect given to Watchmen?
You are seriously overestimating the importance of Batman Inc if you think it's comparable to Watchmen.
Oh, lord no. I'm simply saying that if they don't have respect for the Watchmen--a well loved COMPLETE story, why would they have respect for Morrison's wishes?
There are valid reasons to dislike the idea and/or execution of Before Watchmen, but I will fight anyone who bases their objection around ideas of "respect" for Alan Moore and his work. Moore has based a large part of his career around doing things with other people's characters and stories that their original creators would never have approved of as, I might add, was his intention with Watchmen before DC editorial realized it rendered their newly obtained characters unusable so taking Watchmen and changing and adding things is absolutely fair play as far as matters of "respect" are concerned.
