Oh noes! The Reds are poisoning the water supply!

One of my favorite web sites these days, io9, has an article called The Version of Watchmen the Studio Wanted. I haven’t seen the movie, yet, but if the fight Zack Snyder put up to make it remain faithful to the book is to be believed, then I’m glad he was there to fight it. It still might not be that great a film (and, having re-read most of it in the past week, I’m reminded of the thousand little details that could ruin it by being skipped), but at least he tried!

Meanwhile, they offer up this awesome video of Watchmen turned into a Saturday morning cartoon. It’s hilarious on its own, but if you know the graphic novel, it’s pee-your-pants funny.

And, somehow, I missed this Simpsons episode from last year called Husbands and Knives┬áin which Watchmen author, Alan Moore, appears. At one point, Milhouse asks him to sign his DVD of “Watchmen Babies in V for Vacation.”

    I’m a bit embarrased to admit that I never read The Watchmen back in the day. It came out when I already had a $20-a-week comic pull list (in 80′s comics dollars) and I just couldn’t talk myself into adding another series that wasn’t related in any way to the stuff I was already reading…. Silly frickin’ me, it appears!

    Now I’m torn as to whether to get the book and read it before or after I see the movie. I was very happy that I made myself re-read Lord of The Rings before seeing the movies.

    A happy dilemma, for sure.
