Who Watches the Watchmen? We Do! We Do!

As a lifelong comic book fanboy in his mid-thirties, the only thing more exciting to me than Zack Snyder's film adaptation of The Watchmen making it to the big screen is seeing a new generation discovering this classic work for the first time.

Teenagers across the country are plunging themselves into The Watchmen. Recent superhero franchises like the X-Men and new Batman series have helped path the way for introducing what is still one of the darkest and most philosophical comic books ever.

You can always tell when something captures the imagination of young artists, as they begin producing art like this for their own amusement...

A new generation of intelligent, creative, and introspective teenagers is now being introduced to the comic world's most influential stories ever.

Alan Moore might also see it this way, if he wasn't so busy being a complete asshat.
