Widely heralded in most geek circles at the greatest comic book of all time, Watchmen holds a much vaunted place in the heart of comic book readers. For years, Hollywood tried to bring Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons‘ deconstructionist super hero murder mystery to the big screen with no success. For years Watchmen was considered unfilmable.
But no longer. Riding the wave of comic book movie hysteria (and big profits), Warner Bros. and director have finally brought Watchmen
to the big screen! And thus did hysteria ensue. The initial teaser
trailer release caused the general public to go on a Watchmen buying
frenzy, and 300,000 copies of the book flew off the shelves in the
second half of 2008.
This week, iFanboy takes a look at the comic book that caused
all the hysteria. Is it, in fact, the greatest comic book story ever
told? Does it live up to the hype? Is it still as relevant now as it
was in 1986? And how do the guys feel about the up coming movie?
