Alan Moore, whose graphic novels V For Vendetta, Watchmen and League Of Extraordinary Gentleman have been turned into major movies, has joined the roster of Occupy Comics, a group of comic book and graphic novel artists and writers joining to support the Occupy protests nationwide. He joins his V For Vendetta collaborator David Lloyd, who came aboard last week. (The coalition, which numbers 53 artists to date, also includes The Walking Dead‘s Charlie Adlard.) Occupy Comics is creating new art and stories inspired by the protesters and has already raised $15,000 on crowd-funding site Kickstarter; the plan is to roll out a series of digital comics early next year, followed by limited-edition paper comics and then a hardbound collectable book. Moore will contribute a longform prose piece with illustrations, with Lloyd also offering up original art. All profits and payments will go to the Occupy movement, the group says. One artist who won’t be joining this group, or forking over a donation: Sin City‘s Frank Miller, who on his own website railed against Wall Street protesters for being “nothing but a pack of louts, thieves, and rapists, an unruly mob, fed by Woodstock-era nostalgia and putrid false righteousness.”
