First off, the video journal below features Dave Gibbons, the artist behind the classic comic book (or should I say, graphic novel).

  1. I am absolutely stunned at how little buzz this movie is generating..What’s going on?

  2. Green,

    Finally! Someone commented on this post! I was starting to lose faith in our readers. I’m stunned that there isn’t a ton of discussion on this.

    Have you guys not read the graphic novel? Go buy the damned thing – it’s epic.


  3. I thought the graphic novel I read of the Watchmen was THE MOST amazing and riveting story of “superheros” that I have ever read..The immediate tone it starts out with along with the tension produced throughout the series. From placing heroes that were experiencing the human condition to the anti-veneration of those same heroes to it’s social commentary on the Vietnam War and the Civil rights movement, apocalyptic themes and conspiracy theory and human morality..and I still haven’t come close to hitting all the themes this story touched on.. I mean this HAD IT ALL!!

    If you haven’t read it please go get a copy and read it!! It was voted one of the 100 best works of fiction of the 20th century for cripes sake!!It is also relevant to events in the world today with its fatalism themes, Keen Act (RFID anyone?) and theme of megalomania…You won’t be disappointed…A Definitive Masterpiece!!!

    Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?

    I don’t know if you would agree with me on this but I think The Watchmen had the single largest influence on the comic book industry in that it let companies see that adult themed R rated comics could sell and be considered a true art form as well as classic literature..

    I really don’t think that movies like Hancock and the Nolans new take on Batman could have been possible if Watchmen hadn’t been written..It really revolutionized the comic book “superhero” genre by bringing it to mainstream audiences…My Mom read it and thought it was FANTASTIC..She actually wants to see the movie although it’s been 20 years since she read it…

    I can’t wait to see what you footage and info you guys are given access to at SDCC..I hope they have some real gold nuggets there…Just commenting on this post is getting me very excited for this movie now!!

  6. Vic you may or maynot agree with me on this…here goes..

    The Watchmen changed everything in the comic book industry by showing R-themed “comic books” could be viewed as true art and classic literature at the same time. It revolutionized the super-hero genre removing it from it’s pulp roots and taking it into the adult mainstream.

    I don’t think movies like Hancock and Nolan’s take on Batman could have been possible without the Watchmen..

    “noui consilia et ueteres quaecumque monetis amici, pone seram, cohibe.
    sed quis custodiet ipsos custodes
    cauta est et ab illis incipit uxor.”

    “I hear always the admonishment of my friends:
    ‘Bolt her in, and constrain her!’
    But who will watch the watchmen?
    The wife arranges accordingly, and begins with them.”

  7. I lost two posts…sheesh…frickin SPAMER-MAN again…

    Who watches the Spam filter?

  8. I could have sworn there was a trailer for this with Hulk ???
    Am I wrong ???

  9. I didn’t see no trailer with Hulk 790

  10. Alan Moore’s Watchmen, Art Spiegelman’s Maus, Batman: The Dark Knight Returns by Frank Miller
    These three publications helped to increase the genre to a more adult level of literature, and it introduced how graphic novels could be used as a form of literature that truly differs from “child-oriented comic books and they received a lot of media attention which never really had been seen before in a genre generally believed to be nothing more than children’s entertainment.
