Burning Itch: Who Watches the Watchmen

I think it should be pretty clear how I reacted to the news that DC was, again, moving to do new Watchmen comics without the participation of Alan Moore by reading the above strip.

(It seems blogger recently changed the code so images open in some sort of size-restricted window.  The work-around I use is to right click on the thumbnail and open in a new tab.  Some browsers still reduce the image to fit the screen, but I know Chrome allows me to click on the image and view it full size and scroll around to read it all)

This is razor-sharp editorializing. Your opinion is as striking and clear as the homage to Dave Gibbons’ work.

I enjoyed Watchmen and I understand why its held in high regard, but I don’t treat is as gospel and I had no opinion on the proposed prequels. Now I keep looking at this strip and thinking, “I don’t know what to think!”
