Missed It: DC Snips Alan Moore?

imageOn Monday comics industry gossip master Rich Johnston picked up on something that had been bubbling underneath the newsreporting surface, primarily on Mike Sterling's Progressive Ruin -- that DC had excised some of the text opening in the "Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow?" story appearing in an collection of Alan Moore stories, along with some other seemingly odd changes. As is well known, DC and Moore have a dicey relationship going back to the late 1980s, making this treatment of an evocative part of a very, very good comic book story that much more of a shame. If nothing else, it cements my personal resolve to never buy these works in that form, despite the convenience and really cool-looking cover art.
