Acclaimed comic book author Alan Moore told a British publication that he will no longer accept royalties for his work and that he has demanded the funds be sent to the neo-Marxist organization Black Lives Matter.
Moore also said he is no longer interested in money and that he lives a simple, quiet life in the United Kingdom.
It was unknown Friday whether DC Comics planned to honor his request to cut checks to Black Lives Matter.
If the author’s royalties are sent to the group on his behalf, it is questionable what might become of them.
Comic book writer Alan Moore, of Watchmen and V For Vendetta fame, says that he no longer wants the royalties from his books and media but rather wants them to be sent…to BLM. He’d rather fund literal criminals.#comicbookspic.twitter.com/tAcyNNc1uN
According to Sinclair Broadcast Group, it is believed that only one-third of the $90 million Black Lives Matter collected from 2020 to 2022 went somewhere other than the pockets of executives or for its operating expenses.
The group purchased a $6 million Los Angeles-area compound with money that was donated after the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis police custody.
The purchase sparked outrage last year after it went public.

The mother of 12-year-old Tamir Rice, who died after a deadly encounter with police in Ohio in 2014, told the New York Post in 2021 that the people behind Black Lives Matter used dead people to cash in.
Samaria Rice pointed to a luxury property owned by BLM co-founder Patrisse Cullors.
“They are benefiting off the blood of our loved ones, and they won’t even talk to us,” Rice said.
She previously said the group was “raising money in our dead sons’ names and giving us nothing in return.”
