I don't think there is a god. And if there is I'm nothing like him.

And as for His Beardiness and his creative stimulant of choice?

Joe, have you ever heard of Alan Moore?

That depiction of Alan Moore is both badass and hilarious at the same time.

I apologize. I've been bored. I've seen this section without comment for over a month before. At least some people are making replies here now....

Question... Does anyone care what the Watchman GN is about anymore?

The upcoming prequels ?

Well, we can't discuss much if little information is available.

If the use of "anyone" above also encapsulates the suits at DC along with certain comics creators out there, then that very question goes and puts this thread nicely back on topic once again. Hopefully, that's o_ok with certain parties?

What makes Watchmen sacred? This thing that can't be touched? Even the Bible has a sequel. Let me put it this way...

I love the movie Highlander - every sequel, IMO, was a complete piece of shit
I love the movie Planet of the Apes - every sequel, IMO, was a complete piece of shit; as well as the remake.
I love the movie Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory - the remake, IMO, was unwatchable.
I despise the Star Trek reboot film as well as a handful of the TOS and TNG films. I still love much of what Star Trek exists.
I love the BBC's Being Human - the Syfy series, IMO, is total shit.

None of the things above are "ruined" or "sullied" because a crappier counterpart exists.

The "suits" Will always do what may make them some bank. We can love it, hate it, boycott it.

Watchmen is no different. I may hate the prequels - but who really cares if they make them?

Hell, if they are making them. isn't it better, as fans, to at least voice what we think would be the best approach; do the least "damage" so to speak?

It's like Synder taking on making the Watchmen film because it was happening with or without him.

I think he's talking about The New Testament.

If you think about it, The Bible is sort of the "Blu-ray collector's edition" of christian writings.

Yes, the New Testament.

Hell, you can count The Book of Mormon to be part three. Talk about "jumping the shark."

Well, the new testament is part of the Bible, thats list saying Atlas Shrugged Part 2 is the sequel to Atlas shrugged part one, it's all the same book.

i thought he was talking about the Cathechism or the Koran

If I'm not mistaken, the bible was just The Old Testament before The New Testament hit the town.

By the way, it's "The Quran".

Right. The Old Testament was only called that by Christians after the New Testament came to pass. Before that, it was just called the Torah.

Either way - one of the most sacred texts know to man has two sequels. And last I checked all of the Jews and Christians haven't jumped ship to Mormonism, so I think Watchmen is fair game and any prequels/sequels will not induce mass anarchy or an apocalypse.

And lots of others out there in fandom, too.

Your welcome. Not sure why you feel I don't want you or any other fan to voice their opinion. That's what this site is all about.I respect your opinion and understand where you're coming from.

Quick hypothetical. If Alan Moore settled his grievances with DC and gave his blessing on other comics writers/artists to create Watchmen comics prequels, would you be for the idea or still against it. I'm not trolling here, I'm seriously curious.

In my opinion, they jumped the shark as soon as they included that god fellow. Someone was high off their ass.

sounds like a cop-out to me, unless moore included himself as part of the creative team. then i'd be okay with it.
