And, surprise, surprise, Moore isn't impressed by this idea:

"The announcement that there is a League of Extraordinary Gentlemen television series hasnít caused me to drastically alter my opinions. Now it seems they are recycling things that have already proven not to work.Ē
A bit ironic, since many of Moore's best known works are "recycled" from the works of others.
"Recycled." That's a polite word. I doubt Moore had permission from Aaron Sorkin, J.K. Rowling, Gildrose Publications, and the BBC (among many others) for the use of their characters in LOEG: Century. One of the best, and also most dismissive, comments on what LOEG is came from Comics Alliance's Chris Sims -- it's "Family Guy for smart people."
