Alan Moore Redirects Royalty Checks from DC Comics to Black Lives Matter

English author Alan Moore revealed that he is longer taking royalty checks from DC Comics for films and television series based on his works and has asked the company to send these checks to Black Lives Matter.

In a new interview published on September 13, 2023, by The Telegraph, the comics icon behind ‘Watchmen,’ ‘V for Vendetta,’ ‘Batman: The Killing Joke,’ ‘The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen,’ and other works discussed his transition into literary publication following the release of his short story collection, ‘Illuminations.’

Moore was questioned by The Telegraph if it was accurate that he divided all of the money he made from film and TV series among the writers and other creatives, and the writer responded,

“I no longer wish it to even be shared with them. I don’t really feel, with the recent films, that they have stood by what I assumed were their original principles. So I asked for DC Comics to send all of the money from any future TV series or films to Black Lives Matter.”

Alan Moore’s other notable works include ‘From Hell,’ ‘Jerusalem,’ ‘The Ballad of Halo Jones,’ ‘Lost Girls,’ ‘Marvelman,’ ‘Promethea,’ ‘Swamp Thing,’ ‘Voice of the Fire,’ ‘Superman: Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow?’ and ‘For the Man Who Has Everything.’
