Honestly, my guess would be that he definatly hasn't given his
permission but also that he couldn't care less. Having read the
strips that have been posted to date, they're very funny. People
will be suprised. Certainly, he's had worse material reprinted
recently, such as Skizz and some of those Future Shocks. His artwork
is suprisingly good on the less rushed ones too.
In his introduction to issue 1 of the Acme comics Maxwell the Magic
Cat reprints he says there that he doesn't think the strips are very
good but it didn't prevent him allowing them to be reprinted.
I have read interviews where Moore has jokingly reffered to
embarrasing early work he would like to see destroyed forever but he
was reffering to his pre 80s amateur work in magazines like Embryo,
rather than the Sounds strips.
Of course, if you don't want stuff disseminated to the public the
best thing to do is not to have it published in the first place.
It's as valid a representation of the development of his writing and
technique as say, Captain Britain and certainly nothing to be
embarrased about. It's not like he was doing 'George and Lynn'.
