Curmudgeonly comics creator Alan Moore has expressed his thought about the plans to adapt his League of Extraordinary Gentlemen series into a television programme. It will come as no surprise then that the native of Northampton is just as cynical as ever.

"Me and [co-creator Kevin O'Neill] have been chuckling about that one, we only heard about it the other day," he told Entertainment Weekly.

"When DC did the Watchmen prequel comics I said all sorts of deeply offensive things about the modern entertainment industry clearly having no ideas of its own and having to go through dustbins and spittoons in the middle of the night to recycle things. The announcement that there is a League of Extraordinary Gentlemen television series hasn't caused me to drastically alter my opinions. Now it seems that they are recycling things that have already proven not to work."

Whatever happens let’s hope that the TV version is vastly superior to the dreadful 2003 film, and that it actually respects it’s source material.

I would be so very happy if they could remake it properly and keeping the aeasthetics of the comics! honestly, the comic by itself makes a wonderful colorful and dark storyboard!
HBO maybe?
THis would make my day!
