Quis custodiet ipsos custodes? @ 06:00 pm

Watchmen is coming to theaters in 2009. There is no doubt that this is my favorite graphic novel of all time (The Sandman books are a close second), so when they announced they were making a film I was skeptical.

The graphic novel is 12 comics, about 28 pages each. That's 336 pages of dense content to try and convert to a two hour film. It will be a very tall order to get it into a film, but the trailer they've released looks phenomenal. Hopefully they can pull it off!

As a way to generate a little buzz they've released some Watchmen Motion Comics which are video recreations of the actual comic pages. It's pretty badass, I recommend it if you're a comic book fan.
