* ArtistDisillusionment: [[http://www.theguardian.com/books/2014/jan/21/superheroes-cultural-catastrophe-alan-moore-comics-watchmen?CMP=twt_gu In a 2013 interview with The Guardian]], Alan Moore admits that he "hates superheroes" and that he no longer feels that the genre has any value and meaning.
* CreatorRecovery: Moore has admitted that he was going through a period of depression while writing ''ComicBook/{{Watchmen}}''. Most of what he's written since (with the exception of ''ComicBook/FromHell'') has been much more optimistic, although ''ComicBook/{{Neonomicon}}'' and the later volumes of ''ComicBook/TheLeagueOfExtraordinaryGentlemen'' have made his early 2010s very grim.
* DisownedAdaptation: Any adaptation of anything he's ever written -- ''EVER''.
** ''Film/VForVendetta'': Moore specifically requested that his name be removed from the production after Joel Silver (the film's producer) lied about Moore's enthusiasm for the shooting script. This, and the rather poor quality of previous adaptations of ''ComicBook/FromHell'' and ''Comicbook/TheLeagueOfExtraordinaryGentlemen'', prompted his (in retrospect, possibly hasty) decision to have his name removed from any and all adaptations of works he has no ownership of, and his pseudo-royalties distributed amongst the relevant artists. Hence, he has received no money from the filmmakers behind ''V for Vendetta'', ''Film/{{Constantine}}'', or the ''Watchmen'' movie.
** Zack Snyder, director of ''Film/{{Watchmen}}'' once said that the best-case scenario of ever getting Moore to watch his movie was that there might come one odd day where Moore accidentally puts the DVD into his player and turns it off after a second. Moore replied to this by saying Snyder was giving the movie too much credit.
*** Of course, Snyder didn't help his case by saying Alan might some day put it in a DVD player in [[BritainIsOnlyLondon London]]. [[CriticalResearchFailure As opposed to Northampton, where he actually lives.]]

** And Creator/HarryPartridge's AffectionateParody ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YDDHHrt6l4w&ob=av3e Saturday Morning Watchmen]]''.
* OldShame: He's publicly said that he doesn't want his very early strips from ''Sounds'' magazine, ''Roscoe Moscow'' and ''The Stars My Degradation'', ever reprinted.
* ScheduleSlip: ''ComicBook/VForVendetta'', ''ComicBook/LostGirls'', and ''ComicBook/FromHell'' were all heavily delayed due to problems with publishers/publications collapsing, but were eventually finished.
