"It was twenty years ago today....."
Has it really been 20 years since the first issue of Alan Moore's 'Watchmen'? Time has flown and crawled through these past two decades for Daddy. I believe I have made no secret of my love for great comic books and this one is on the short list of greatest ever written. Thanks to Mr. Moore comics have never been the same, for better or worse, after his insightful and poignant look at what we never knew about super heroes. Many have imitated but never duplicated the exhaustive and thorough look at the genre that we were afforded lo those many years ago. It' a shame that a sequel will never happen and, for that matter, that the movie has been bounced to so many different writers and directors for so many years that we may never see it come to wide-screen fruition. Please, pick up the graphic novel and READ IT. Daddy wouldn't lie to you.
