When someone says "Watchmen" or mentions one of the characters, where is the first image in your mind comming from? The Movie or the Novel? Is there a mix? Maybe some characters you immediatly picture the movie while others you think of the novel first.

when they say a character, i instantly think to the movie simply because there's now a film which i can relate to. if the film didn't exist, then i would think of the comic. when they say watchmen, it can go either way, which when they do say watchmen, i reply with "the comic or movie?"

Probably the movie because it's more recent. Though, I generally think of both.

Actually, when someone says Watchmen I'm pretty sure that I just think of the Watchmen logo. The title against a black backdrop or whatever it was. Or the smiley pin.

Depends on the person, if some average movie going chick asks me about Watchmen, I think of the movie.

If a highly intellectual Alan Moore clone asks me about the Watchmen, I think of the novel.

Shoot that Alan Moore clone. He just asked you about the Watchmen.

When someone says "Watchmen" to me I think of the book, because I remember when I bought the DVD when it came out, and it feeling really surreal for some reason, like the movie was just an overly vivid dream I was having. On the other hand, if someone mentions the Comedian I think of the film.
