"Leaving aside the fact that the Watchmen characters were variations on pre-existing characters created for the Charleton Comics universe, it should be pointed out that Alan has spent most of the last decade writing very good stories about characters created by other writers, including Alice (from Alice in Wonderland), Dorothy (from Wizard of Oz), Wendy (from Peter Pan), as well as Captain Nemo, the Invisible Man, Jeyll and Hyde, and Professor Moriarty (used in the successful League of Extraordinary Gentlemen). I think one loses a little of the moral high ground to say, “I can write characters created by Jules Verne, H.G. Wells, Robert Louis Stevenson, Arthur Conan Doyle and Frank Baum, but it’s wrong for anyone else to write my characters." - J. Michael Straczynski (I do question the "very good" stories part when it comes some Moore's later works)

Oct. 12th 1985 is a very special date for me. For one, it's the date of my birth. But it's also the date that Moore and Gibbons' amazing maxi-series Watchmen begins. This October being Villains Being Awesome month, and today my special day, I wanted to showcase the one indisputable point where a controversial "villain" does an amazing bit of presentation and achieves what was for so long in comics a conventional taboo.

Spoilers for Watchmen (why haven't you read it yet?)

Look on my works, ye mighty, and despair. )

11 pages from 36 page Watchmen #11

As some of you may have heard, there have been rumours circulating of DC doing a prequel (sequel?) to Alan Moore's Watchmen series. Whether or not that actually comes to fruition, only time will tell, though to be honest I'm not sure how I feel about DC releasing a prequel/sequel myself since I felt the original series was perfect the way it was.

Nevertheless, BleedingCool released an image of Silk Spectre II by Amanda Conner, with a different variation to the original costume )

So I wasn't sure who to pick for my "favorite friendship"--I was considering Matt and Foggy, but I didn't have any good scans on me. But it just hit me moments ago--what about Rorschach and Nite Owl II from Watchmen?

Without further ado, three pages from Watchmen #10. I'm willing to bet that most of you are familiar with these two, so I'll let the scans speak for themselves.

You know how hard it is, being your friend? )

Here are six covers for the French edition of Watchmen drawn by Dave Gibbons. I believe these were originally posted on SD 1.0, but they're lovely and some people haven't seen them, so here they are again! Large images.

Idle chatter. Teeth shining behind false masks of pleasantries. The dim insanity held barely checked behind their eyes. Their every twitch screaming. Screaming for release. Screaming for a cease to this mundane existence, plagued with the disrespect and wasteful edicts of the new Kings. 327 she calls. It is my number. I take my Whopper and leave. The streets are my table. The sins of man are my condiments. Criminals are my napkin. She forgot pickles.

Justice is dead.

The rest is here.
