Speaking of remembering things, here's a quote from a Deadline Hollywood Daily post on the Watchmen Fox/WB fiasco.
The editor of the book, Len Wein (also the creator of Wolverine), actually quit as editor when Alan Moore refused to change the ending even though it was pointed out to him, that he was lifting the ending from another source. Moore instead chose to say he was doing an “homage” to the Outer Limits episode by referencing it in the actual books.
Is that true? You might want to set the record straight.
homage, theft - interesting question.
