Blah blah blah.
 
I think so I remember reading this argument many years ago.
 
This is Sergio Leonne VS Akira Kurosawa VS  Dashiell Hammet t all over again.
 
Remember that people?
 
At the end of the day, both were culturally important. If Morrison can come out something as good as Watchmen at the end of the day, I'm sure people would respect both materials equally.
 
And you Fanboys think why other people think you're annoying.

I'd get it.

The Watchmen is just a comic book, and really aslong as the follow up is an entertaining read it shouldnt cause so much drama. The Watchmen isn't a bible, yo. Chill out.

Anyone other than Morrison, I'd be screaming at my monitor right now. Of course, if he does it, it'll open the floodgates.

It was Wizard magazine from a few years ago they wrote an article on Countdown Arena and that was the main image.

I watched the Film of Watchmen I quit liked it, though it was a bit grim in places, I can't wait till I read the comicbook

I wonder if they'll use new versions of other Charlton characters? Like E-Man, Judo Master, and Son of Vulcan?

It's not really a sequel...more of a "semi-sequel". It follows the concept, updates it to the 2000s, yet won't use the same universe and characters...
 
A spiritual sequel of sorts... Much better than when DC wanted to make a sequel of an Alan Moore work without Alan Moore!

Morrison = comic book god.  He can pretty much do anything, as far as I am concerned.

Ugh...Frank Quitely...pass on this, I'm not keen on what Morrison is doing with Batman, he's a decent writer and storyteller, but I just can't stand Quitely's artwork.

And Capt. Atom is Dr. Manhattan. 
 
I've got a lot of faith in Morrison, but he needs to tread VERY carefully. This isn't just some retooling of an obscure book that no one remembers, this is Watchmen.

 Alan Moore will put a voodoo hex on Grant Morrison. Morrison will deflect it with chaos magic. And somewhere in the UK around New Castle or Leeds some 8 year old will be caught in the crossfire and his head will explode all over his bedroom wall. Following this the other members of The Society of British Bastards (Gaiman, Ellis, and Ennis) will just sit back and watch the Magician and the Shaman warp reality in their duel and then write about it in the various themes they employ.
 
Needless to say I am very excited about this

Cool idea, but I'm glad Morrison is using the Charlton characters
