Waiting for the Watchmen

So I saw Watchmen this weekend. It was really fun and it stayed pretty true to the book (yeah, except for the ending).
I gotta say the slow motion brutality was overdone and the sex scenes were mini-pornos (really awkward mini-pornos) but it was, overall, a pretty good movie.
For the folks who detested it, I have to echo Patton Oswalt and say that there are FAR worse comic-adaptation movies out there (Daredevil, Elektra, Catwoman). So there.

I brought my moleskine sketchbook along with me for the wait beforehand.
Inspired by geekiness, I drew the same two blue dudes that Dave Gibbons drew. (Two, you say?) Most folks are now familiar with Dr. Manhattan, but unless they read 2000ad (the same birthplace as Judge Dredd) they've probably never heard of the Rogue Trooper. Blue's MY favorite color. I think Dave Gibbons has the same opinion.

More Starlets stuff in the works!
