…linking to the reaction of noted biologist and skeptic PZ Myers to Alan Moore speaking about magic. Thought some of you out there might find that interesting.

Speaking of Moore, a couple of his stories were adapted in the recently-released Green Lantern: Emerald Knights animated moviewhich I just watched last night. “Mogo Doesn’t Socialize” makes it through more or less intact, but “Tygers” (the Abin Sur one, illustrated by Kevin O’Neill) is only barely recognizable, having been thoroughly reworked to meet the demands of the movie’s overarching plot. Nothing of the original’s impact makes it into the final product. Otherwise, the film was okay…it’s neat seeing all the Green Lanterns in action (and what must be, what, the sixth or seventh redesign for Kilowog?), but it’s a shame that Special Guest Ultimate Menace Krona didn’t get much to do other than be large and roar a lot. I think I would have rather seen this Krona-centric story made into a movie. But, you know, no one ever asked me.

    I like the idea of PZ Meyers going all fanboy listening Alan Moore. Great read.

    I’m a little concerned for the philosophy of Chaos Magic
    as a whole. Spending a life time treating supernatural entities as though they’re real, while simultaneously using hallucinogenic drugs? Who knows where your head will be at when you get older?

    I’ve never liked that Moore Abin Sur story. It just comes off as needlessly mean.
