It looks like the Watchmen prequel comics are finally a go, according to ICv2. Just running my eye down that list, there's some nice covers there already and some big names on the writing teams so this might be quite good. That brief line "DC will release one issue per week" sounds impressive - let's hope they can keep up with that schedule!

I grabbed 2 DVD's that interested me today when I went over to JB HI-FI: Watchmen: The Complete Motion Comic (I watched the first two chapters on TV a few weeks ago and was intrigued) and Astonishing X-men: Gifted Motion Comic because I just wanted to see how the story would adapt to the medium. Haven't had a chance to watch them yet but I'll try to do so over the next few days.

Holy crap!

Just flicking across the channels a few minutes ago and I spotted and ad for this: Watchmen: The Complete Motion Comic on Go! tomorrow night at 11.30pm. Holy crap!

Fascinating article at CBR about the almost-incarnation of the story from production designer Dominic Watkins on the Paul Greengrass version of the movie. It sounds like they were just weeks way from committing to the movie with almost everything bar the construction of the major sets done. From the looks of the pictures, the visuals would have been very different form Snyder's and quite different form the book's images. For whatever else Snyder did or didn't do with the movie, I felt it at least looked like the book.

I knew it!

I haven't bought any version of Watchmen or Tales of the Black Freighter because I was sure that there would be some kind of combined version. Behold, Watchmen: The Ultimate Cut featuring not only the above pair but also Under the Hood and the complete Watchmen Motion Comic. Now this is the version I'm going to buy!

Just noticed this item at EzyDVD. I know that lots of people though it was a bit pointless but I rather enjoyed the series as I was waiting for the movie to arrive. Even though the animation was definitely of the stop-start variety, the voices were great and it was generally well done. Another "must buy" for me, I fear!

Watching the trailer and clip from Comic Book Resources, Tales of the Black Freighter both looks and sounds just as I imagined it would - I'm impressed.

The clip for Under The Hood looks even better, if that's possible. It will be interesting to see what sales are like.

The Rorschach Desk Blotter. Funny on so many levels - and as for that disgusting image on the blotter .....

It looks like Watchmen took US$55 million+ in it's opening weekend, according to Comic Book Resources, a pretty damn good rating, imho but, as the article says, that could still be considered under-performing in some people's eyes. Given how difficult a movie this was to adapt to the screen, I think that's a damn good figure and I have no doubt the DVD sales will be colossal too.

Great interview at Comic Book Resources with Dave Gibbons and Zack Snyder - they both seem to still be very positive about the movie, Gibbons seems to get that just because it was in the book doesn't mean it's good for the screen.

From the sounds of this report, it sounds like the panel went well and the reception to the footage was positive. Snyder also sounds like he's really got the cast attuned to what's required from them to stick with the original story. Let's just hope the general public see and like the movie enough that it becomes a big hit.

In this article about Watchmen, read the second comment box down:
Joss Whedon:
"It's a comic book about pop culture as viewed through a comic book, so I didn't see the point of making a movie. But I saw the trailer, and it looked phenomenal."


I think I'm happy!

I've seen the shorts for Watchmen six or seven times over the last 24 hours. It looks so very cool - but (and this is a big but) if I didn't already know the story, I wouldn't have a clue what was happening from those shorts. It looks all very film noir/superheroes in tights, all very moody and dark. I suppose they may be going for the TDK vibe, perhaps?

Comic Book Resources has a very nice interview with Patrick Wilson (Nite Owl). It sounds like Wilson really got into the part - I particularly like his comment about the height of Nite Owl's kicks, shows some real thoroughness there.

I will confess that I watched Rove for Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Malin Akerman but the saccharin did get to me. No new footage or new info but the interview was OK. Alan Cumming was quite funny though.

This week, Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Malin Akerman (The Comedian and Silk Spectre, respectively) are on the show. I will watch, but with gritted teeth, in case the saccharin gets to me!

The penultimate log is available at Comic Book Resources and two new TV spots are on YouTube here for #3 and here for #4. I know I am beginning to sound like a broken record but I am still impressed by Zack Snyder's attention to detail and his determination to keep to the comic as closely as possible.

There's a very nice collection of the many promo posters that have already come out for Watchmen right here. I particularly like the newest "No More Masks" one!
