Alan Moore Discusses Watchmen In "The Mindscape Of Alan Moore".

The title pretty much explains it.

How The Studios Would Have Ended 'Watchmen' (A Storyboard)

Here's a great article from Cracked about how the movie studio would have preferred to end "The Watchmen".

Saturday Morning Watchmen.

Just got through watching the "Watchmen" movie, and it was holy crap awesome. It was an overwhelming experience, and I'm still processing it. Man have they been doing a good job making movies on Alan Moore's stuff (well, as long as we pretend that League Of Extraordinary Gentleman did not exist, which I'm totally prepared to do.)

"Watchmen" held a particular place in my heart as one of the early influences on my late 90s comic book "Why I'm Not An Artist". The 9-panel layout of the pages, repeated symbols, and constant backstory reflection were all tropes I adopted into my visual/narrative pallette.

Man, the movie was awesome.
