Saturday Morning Cartoons: Watchmen
Set in an alternate universe where in nineteen eighty-five the tensions between the United States and the Soviet Union are high and the "Doomsday Clock" is set at five minutes to midnight, former superhero turned vigilante Rorschach discovers that one of his former colleagues, The Comedian, has been murdered.
As he investigates the murder he uncovers a plot that is intent on killing and/or discrediting all past and present superheros. As he reconnects with members of his former crime-fighting unit, including Nite Owl II, Silk Spectre II, Ozymandias and Dr. Manhattan, they uncover a disturbing conspiracy that not only links their shared past but has catastrophic consequences for the future.
Read the graphic novel for the first time today. I enjoyed the story. It was deep and interesting, but I never got to a point where I really cared very much about the characters...except for Rorschach.
Has anyone seen the movie yet?
