Comic Non-Sans: Do-It-Yourself

The website I work for has begun handling user comments via DISQUS (much as, as you can see, GOA does — it’s very nice).  I’m responsible at work for, among other things, moderating reader comments.  This was a bit of a bugger back when we had an open-ended system where no one had to register, […]

Watchmen 8-bit arcade game

But this […]

A sneak peek at Watchmen

Featuring some new footage and a conversation with director Zack Snyder, Warner Bros. released a behind-the-scenes look at the Watchmen movie—and also probably pissed the hell out of 20th Century Fox’s lawyers. Catch the video (courtesy of the Hollywood Reporter) below:

Trailer Watch: Watchmen teaser

The Watchmen teaser trailer snuck online earlier today and has ended up at MovieWeb, but it’ll probably get taken down very soon. It should be officially back up at Empire at 8PM Central Friday morning. Unless you’re totally impatient, I would advise waiting for the better video quality. (EDIT: Yep, it’s at Empire now — […]

Watchmen character photos online

So much for avoiding stuff about the Watchmen movie… The film’s official site has posted character photos (posters?) of the main cast for the adaptation of the Alan Moore/Dave Gibbons comic. The Comedian (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), Ozymandias (Matthew Goode), Rorschach (Jackie Earle Haley), the Silk Spectre II (Malin Akerman), and Nite Owl II (Patrick Wilson) — with the Owlship behind him. No […]

Tales of the Black Freighter… anime? (updated)

So, if you couldn’t guess by my not ever mentioning it, I’ve been mostly avoiding stuff about the Watchmen movie.
