The holder of Peter Pan's copyright is making noise about Alan Moore's Lost Girls, his forthcoming porno-graphic novel.
“We understand this graphic novel involves characters from the story of J.M. Barrie’s “Peter Pan & Wendy,” which is, of course, in copyright in the U.K. and EU,” the Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children said in a statement about Moore’s book.
The hospital, which was bequeathed the rights to the “Peter Pan” books by Barrie, said: “In order to be published or distributed in these territories, Alan Moore’s title would need our permission or license. From press coverage, we understand it deals with sensitive subject matter which does not initially seem appropriate to be associated with the hospital and with J.M. Barrie’s legacy to us.”
Not to mince words on the subject but we find Moore to be something of an overrated freak. Nevertheless, what doesn't seem appropriate to us is making judgements about material without actually having, oh, you know, seen it?
