Watchmen + Sin City = !!!!!!
“Guy went sidewalk diving, Friday Night. I don’t think he was alone when it happened. Name was Edward Blake. Friend of Mine.”
Is the Watchmen movie going to be the bestest movie in the history of cinema? Maybe, maybe not. My impression is that it’s going to be darned good, if not earth-shattering. On the other hand, the original 1986 graphic series was earth-shattering, and still is. Instead of getting the story second (or third, if you just read the reviews and pour over movie stills) hand, why not get it straight from the source and read the original 1986 series while you’re waiting for the movie to be released. Or not, depending in the current legal wranglings.
Seriously. It’s one of the top 100 novels of all time. And it’s got pictures in it, which means you can be literati and geek, all at the same time!
I’d still love to see Watchmen being given the Sin City graphic treatment though………….
