Watchmen

Feature

Friday, March 06, 2009

Alan Moore's ambitious graphic novel Watchmen wowed a generation of readers when it came out in 1986. Twenty-three years later, it's making its big-screen debut. Meanwhile, some of its key innovations have shown up in other movies; is the Watchmen too late to save itself? Produced by Eric Molinsky.

Shannon -- you're absolutely right. We're blushing. And working on fixing the caption now.
Thanks for writing in.

I would like to address a photo tag of Rorschach, which says "[his] all-consuming objective is to kill and discredit all past and present superheroes." This is a false statement. Anyone who read more than two pages of the graphic novel knows that Rorschach is trying to find out who is killing superheroes and is one of the main protagonists in the graphic novel.
