Despite their obvious greatness however, it seems likely that they do not care for each other. Grant Morrison has been very open about his opinions of Moore over the years, and you can find a few examples over on Duy Tano's Comics Cube in his article 'Grant Morrison Is Wrong about Alan Moore'. Moore on the other hand has never, to my knowledge, singled out Morrison for criticism, (UPDATE: I have since learned that Alan Moore has had plenty to say about Grant Morrison) but I can't be the only one who's wondered if there's a bit of Grant Morrison in the Supreme supporting character, Billy Friday, a Jimmy Olsen analog who's depicted as a trendy, grim 'n' gritty British writer. Of course, knowing Moore and his sense of humour, Friday is probably meant to be a parody of Moore himself as much as he is a parody of Morrison.
Despite their differences, Moore and Morrison also have a lot in common. Moore is a ceremonial magician who worships the snake god, Glycon. Morrison claims to have created "holographic voodoo effects" with his writing, specifically with his work on The Invisibles. There's only one obvious way for them to settle their differences isn't there?
