WATCHMEN watching...

It's been a rather Watchmen-ish couple of days for me here.

I just received the new book by artist Dave Gibbons, WATCHING THE WATCHMEN (awesome prelim artwork and details on how they created this landmark comic) and just saw the new trailer for the film adaptation.

Wow- I thought DARK KNIGHT was a film I geeked out for in the extreme (and worth every geekish exclamation) but WATCHMEN is shaping up quite nicely.

If you decide to check out the trailer don't read the short article on the site -if you are familiar with the book's ending you may be getting a shock (tho not a deal breaker kinda shock) so keep a few secrets to help enjoy the film itself...;o)

You might enjoy this Mr. Media podcast interview with Dave Gibbons, co-creator and artist of Watchmen, as he discusses the Warner Bros./Fox dispute, being on the set during production, and what he thinks of the trailer and the rough cut he saw of Watchmen. He also talks about the possibility of working with Frank Miller and the message he took to Alan Moore from Will Eisner. Here's the link!
