Do We Need More Watchmen In Our Lives?
On Wednesday DC Entertainment is expected to announce that its DC Comics imprint intends to publish seven comic-book mini-series that will continue the stories of the adventurers introduced in Watchmen, which was written by Alan Moore and illustrated by Dave Gibbons.
Serialized from 1986 to 1987 and since collected as a graphic novel, Watchmen chronicles a group of crime fighters who, amid the real history of the cold war, find they are as powerless to solve their personal problems as they are to prevent the seeming inevitability of nuclear holocaust.”
Im a big fan of The Watchmen, and having read the trade, and watched the film, I don’t think it would be necessary to have an “origins” tale, regarding the Watchmen. Anyone familiar with Watchmen would realize that there’s already an “origins” story interwoven into it. Oy. Money talks…thankfully Mr Moore isn’t sold on the idea…
Okay. Batman #1 went for ONE DOLLAR AND FIFTY CENTS!!
Gah!! I need a TARDIS to go back to the 70s and get these first issues…This makes me cry.
"I speak reason! Look at man’s history! How can you call all that murder, war, and cruelty God’s work? Can’t you see that morality has been left to man? That God wants man to choose between good and evil for himself?"
