Must Resist the Desire to get "Before Watchmen"

Before Watchmen launches today, I am not pleased. The prequels based on Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons' classic Vertigo saga "Watchmen" have had their fair share of nay sayers, and I am one of them. Did "Watchmen"create characters that could have a great wealth of stories? Of course, but without support from Alan Moore, I do not feel right purchasing any "Before Watchmen" series. Comic companies have made bum deals to creators for most of a century now and the only way I can stand against it is with my dollar.
To be frank, I would love to read new "Watchmen" stories, but only if they were okayed by Moore and I am choosing to not financially support this endeavor by DC. If you believe DC should give creators more control over their characters, do not support "Before Watchmen".
