Watchmen Watched

Mainstream media has really picked up on the Watchmen phenomenon and amongst all the movie hype has given Alan Moore's and Dave Gibbons' graphic novel its place in the limelight and in history. Hope they make a veritable fortune in royalties! Time magazine's Richard Corliss and Lev Grossman devoted three entire pages to it. Check out the Time photo gallery here – all pics (including the one on this blog post) by Clay Enos. As far as I'm concerned there's no finer reason for seeing the film than hunky Jeffrey Dean Morgan who plays the Comedian. 

At the other end of the spectrum you have ultra-conservative ranters and ravers who just don't get it. Read Colleen Doran's dissection of an idiotic blog post in her piece "Conservative Blogger has Meltdown Over Watchmen" and then check out the original source material but focus on the commentary as fans rally around the Moore-meister, take the blog writer to task and expose her as a buffoon.
