I'm really not familiar with the Watchmen material.
I was aware of it when it came out, but thought the concept sounded pretty lame because it didn't feature any "real" superheros, just made-up ones.
And yes, I am painfully aware of how incredibly stupid and geeky that previous sentence is.
But I grew up in the so-called "Silver Age" of comics.
I felt the same way about Watchmen as I felt whenever DC would trot out their second string "Golden Age" heros.
Who the fuck were these lame, ancient characters in the stupid costumes?
But the Watchmen trailer looks great, I have receieved endorsements from people I trust, so I am going to read the Alan Moore graphic novel and try to embrace the Watchmen universe.
