lol you're so defensive.
I'm just saying I don't think theres even a whole lot to analyze at this point.
But I suppose in the end, I would rather read those thesis papers than just a bunch of single sentence answers.
I'm definitely more of a spectator in this thread then.
Honestly, do you want to know what it is... where I'm coming from?
If absolutely nothing else, then disclosure of these prequels has at long last succeeded in generating some impassioned discussion on the subject of WATCHMEN comics... the medium in which it was always intended to exist and the one in which it continues to dominate to this day.
lt is largely for this reason that I had no particular interest whatsoever in debating the movie adaptation and since that came and went, WATCHMEN talk in general both at this forum and others has been pretty slow to nonexistent these past few years.
I guess I'm just relishing in the opportunity to be able to geek out on the subject once more and yes, in all likelihood, a tad too enthusiastically into the bargain.
Because the habits of twenty-five years are hard to break, believe me.
Discussing the content of and analyzing WATCHMEN comics that haven't even seen print yet, with all of the speculation, conjecture and yes, jumping to conclusions that goes with it, takes me to right back to my teenage days of enthusiastically debating every conceivable aspect of each forthcoming installment of the original mini-series run on the early fanboy bulletin boards of the '80s. Just imagine the kind of 'thesis writing' that went on back then, over the course of fourteen loooong
months whilst the comics were slowly being drip-fed to us slavering geeks issue by issue... you young 'uns out there ain't seen nuthin'!
Like the poster reads: Nostalgia. Oh, how the ghost of you clings...
But if you and others here are willing to carry on reading my current ramblings, then I'm happy to carry on writing.
Yet a one-way exchange is no fun at all; please, don't just spectate. Participate!
