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. )

This started as a planned "One Perfect Moment"... well, two actually, but as I went through it I thought "Sod it, this is too cool not to spend more time on".

So here we go... )

"There are... the fictional characters of the present day, and again they're drawn from an even wider variety of media than we were employing in 1969, but this is probably just me and Kevin's take upon it, but you can't help but think that there's a certain degree of... a process of degrading that has kind of gone on, a deterioration.

And I suppose that, in Century as a whole, I mean we're going to be starting off with Bertholt Brecht and the Threepenny Opera which is pretty cool, and then y'know, 1969 we're referencing all these films like Performance and Get Carter which while perhaps not the Threepenny Opera were still pretty good, and in 2009 of course we're referencing the stuff that's around today which doesn't even feel to me like it compares with Get Carter, Performance, or even Villain which wasn't the best film in the world but you know, at least had a performance by Richard Burton and Ian McShane in it that was very watchable.

So I think that might end up being one of the subtexts of Century as a whole, that it will be just this slow degradation of culture, you know sort of in the space of a hundred years."
-- Alan Moore

Here are four pages from League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Century: 2009, the final issue of the three-part story...

A century long conspiracy to bring about the Antichrist comes to a head, and just when it seems all looks lost, an unexpected person comes to the rescue...

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 )
