Watchmen Part 1

This is the first of two comics about going to see THE WATCHMEN. I have to admit that I haven’t actually seen the movie myself. But I almost feel like I have. Everybody seems to be talking about it.

  1. John, John, John. A masked crimefighter who can’t “get it on” with the heroine unless they go kick some butts! A gay superhero/villian! A vigilante who, when imprisoned and almost shawshanked, deep fries the perp and warns the others that he’s not locked up with them: they’re locked up with him! A caricature of Nixon whose nose seems to grow every time he appears before the camera! Puppies! Kitties! People blowing up (without using inconvenient explosives)! All this and a passing jab at Ronald Reagan. It’s tripe, but hell, tripe makes good lutefisk!

  2. Mike, Mike, Mike. All I want to know is this: There’s good lutefisk? When did that happen?
