It's the fault of Albarn/Hewlett.

Obviously.

You're wrong. It was Old Man Jenkins all along!

Darn, well, at least we can all console ourselves with a reading of Century 196... aw.

Monkey: Journey To The West was pretty damn awesome, and it would have been nifty to learn a bit more about John Dee in a novel fashion, but since it is a fair bet that Moore will not shut up about the guy, we'll probably hear all about it in due course.

And, to be fair, Moore hadn't made any enemies for at least a year. That might be a record for him. Positive reinforcement.

I misread the thread title as being about Godzilla. I like my version better.

I don't know if this is a bad or a good thing. Gorrillaz doing a rock opera would be cool, but Alan Moore writing it?

I guess we'll chalk this up to the "what could have been" pile.

But then that would've meant that Moore's collaboration with Godzilla would have fallen through. You don't want Moore to collaborate with Godzilla?

Godzilla's like Tom Jones, always hooking up with younger hipper acts in a desperate attempt to still seem cool and relevant.
