This. It's not like Moore, for instance, ever had to justify his output in this sense. In fact, I think he's a big fan of stuff like Love and Rockets, from what I remember reading.
It isn't necessary at all. I don't particularly like Chris Ware's work - Love his art style - but it's like Tarantino pissing on a Spielberg movie - Unnecessary, and unfair. They deal in different genres, different styles, etcetera. So as much as I like Morrison, and I actually agree, in some ways, that something needs to happen to superheroes to keep them a viable format in the eyes of the public - he's going about justifying his work and superhero comics in entirely the wrong way.
The more I read it, the more he comes across like an opinionated, thuggish member of Oasis, really.
