ALAN MOORE GETS IT COMPLETELY WRONG - AGAIN...
Remember a while back (in this post) when I said someone
should stick a sock in ALAN MOORE's gob to stop him making a
total t*t of himself almost every time he opens his mouth? Well, listen
to him accuse STAN LEE of claiming, in one of his ORIGINS books,
to have created CAPTAIN AMERICA with JACK KIRBY. I've got
those Origins volumes - Stan never says he created the shield-slinger in
any of them. In fact, although he's been mistakenly credited as having
done so by lazy reporters who don't know their comicbook history,
he himself , as far as I'm aware, has never made such a claim in his
life. (Unlike Jack, who once claimed to have created SUPER-
MAN, and designed SPIDER-MAN's costume.)
Furthermore, to add insult to injury, Mr. Moore totally mis-
represents the conversation between JONATHAN ROSS and
Stan in the TV programme IN SEARCH OF STEVE DITKO,
completely distorting what the two of them actually said and
painting Stan in a bad light in the process.
Mr. Moore would do well to remember that, without Stan
Lee, there might not have been a comicbook industry in which
to carve out a lucrative career for himself - largely using the
creations of others who preceded him.
