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 in which Watchmen author, Alan Moore, appears. At one point, Milhouse asks him to sign his DVD of “Watchmen Babies in V for Vacation.”
