Comic book legend Alan Moore did not like Game of Thrones



Game of Thrones Season 8 wasn’t everyone’s cup of tea. The season finale divided the fan base into two. One was satisfied with the ending, the other demanded a season remake. However, there was another group of people who did not like HBO epic in its entirety. Legendary comics creator Alan Moore, recently revealed he was one of them.

Why didn’t Alan Moore like Game of Thrones?

In an interview with ScreenRant, Moore explained, “I want to be almost lifted into a different neurology by a fantasy story. I want something that actually rewires my view of reality while I’m immersed in that book, that allows me all sorts of different possibilities that I hadn’t considered.”

“That’s what I tend to want from fantasy … having seen only a few episodes of Game of Thrones, and this is not a condemnation of it, I’ve not seen more than that, but it did seem to me to be The Sopranos set in Fifth-Century Dorset. That was my impression; that it was a family saga with bloody betrayals and all of the rest of it, but it was in Fifth-Century Dorset rather than in New York State or whatever.”
