Of course, I've been inundated with all of the WATCHMEN publicity (along with everyone else in the Western world), but I have to admit that before all of this hoopla, I'd never even heard of the series. I haven't read comics since I found my first boxing magazine, back in the late Sixties (I couldn't chance stealing that much material every month or so). In fact, when I first heard of this upcoming flick with its comic connection, I thought it would be about the bulbous-headed aliens who "watched" the earth while Hulk, the FF, Spiderman, and the rest of the Marvel lineup battled villains and each other. Those guys were simply called "Watchers," I think. PeteLeo.
