People are complex, and we have to recognize that. I grappled a lot with Moore's more questionable statements because I so admired the rest of who he was and what he did.

I do think that while the sentiment is admirable, its focus is pretty narrow. There are plenty of markets for four-page stories-- for many young creators, that's a Tumblr or Imgur post. You might call that not a real "market" because it doesn't pay, but then we get into freemium models and other facts of life for the young cartoonist, facts about which Moore doesn't seem to have thought much.

Acting as a spokesperson for comics is admittedly a pretty thankless and doomed job. No matter how impressive your resume, you're always going to experience only some of the vast universe of experiences it offers. But some of us think we're qualified anyway, and that's when we run into problems.
