- Who owns the copyright to the script? Alan Moore or the producer?
If the former, anyone with an inside at Avatar who thinks it might be
worthwhile to adapt as a comic?

I found it fairly interesting, though obviously nowhere near as enjoyable or impressive as his better known works.Granted, but on the other hand, at least was written with a visual representation in mind; I think it is several layers of quality (does it come in layers?) over adaptations of his prose, which usually involves excessive captioning.
