The graphic novel is awesome, but it's so incredibly complex that I don't know if a film version can do it justice.

Of course, what's probably important is we're going to see, ahem, all of Doc Manhattan, just like in the comic...

I have never read the book and I have to admit that when I saw the promo, it made absolutely no sense to me. The two people who saw it with me had a similar reaction so I have doubts as to whether people who are unfamiliar with the concept will really feel driven to see the movie.

The graphic novel is mentioned in good company....

The Complete List | TIME Magazine - ALL-TIME 100 Novels

I don't care about revenues for this movie since it is highly unlikely a sequel would occur but I hope it covers its expenses. I do think this film will get a HUGE marketing push. I mean, it's on the cover of EW next week and it doesn't come out until next March and most people, like anitram, have never even heard of Watchmen. Of course, Warner Bros, DC Comics, and EW are all under the same media umbrella so cross marketing is to be expected.

The director designed the debut trailer to show fans shots from the book so we would know he is giving it the same reverence and respect which Peter Jackson showed for LOTR. It was not supposed to explain anything about the story just please fans of the book.

I am certain future trailers will expand on the story and do what trailers do, you know, show the story as an adventure, mystery, romance, epic or whatever with those cool voiceover dudes.

You mean serial trailer killers.

And also, why the fuck can't I change anything within quotes like italics and bolded segments. All I can do to highlight a particular part of a quite is cut out the rest.

That's whack.

Hope you like it. I first read it as it was published as a monthly series back in 1986 awaiting each new issue with great interest. I still have the original 12 issue series but have had the trade paperback for years to read. I still notice different things each time I read it. There are so many layers between the text and art. A fascinating read even over 20 years later.

I read it after it had come out, but only about a year later. I have the single issues, the hardbound collection, and a special portfolio set that has mini-posterboards of all the covers, the 6 French covers, and promotional posters for each character.

God knows how much that's worth now.

I like how all of these movies are helping to promote comic nerds.

I think I was one of the very few people who was super stoked for 30 Days of Night because I had read a great deal of the "source material".

Keep that comment in mind as you have a month-long orgasm before Avatar is released.
