    So Alan Moore has a whole TV series written? Channel 4, BBC what are you waiting for, this cannot be any worse than half the stuff you commission.

    Also, how did they finance Jimmy's end and how are they going to make their money back?

    The pretentiousness is palpable.

    How can a noble endeavour described in plain vocabulary be described as pretentious?

    It's more or less the basis of most of Grant Morrison's career, and it was hardly an original idea when he glommed on to it.

    [EDIT] actually, on a moment's reflection, it's the basis of all fiction, really.
