Constructing Dr. Manhattan

I never read The Watchmen when I was growing up. Apparently that was a process done under a rock somewhere… I was too busy with the moral depth of the X-men to bother with a whole ‘nother comic. That said, The Watchmen was something referred to by my sipsac sucking peers in hushed, conspiratorial whispers. “Pssst: have you seen this?” Of course I had. The cover art was wild, and spoke of dark heroism, replete with the nightmares that all champions wake to in cold sweats. A bit like Wolverine’s rough and tumble righteous bloodletting in contrast to the sanitized Samaritanism of the rest of the team. But I’d never read a single line of The Watchmen.

And now I don’t have to. I can see the movie instead. 🙂

  1. I read Watchmen once, when one of my friends (who loves comics much more than I) let me borrow it. It was an interesting book, to say the least. It was very, very, very dark.
