CM Podcast 150 – The Watchmen

It’s our 150th podcast so let’s celebrate by talking about a comic that is over 30 years old!

It’s a special milestone podcast so I wanted to talk about a special comic mini-series that was influential and had an impact on the comics industry as well as Jon and myself.  That series is… The Watchmen.

Originally published by DC between 1986 – 1987, this seminal series was written by Alan Moore with art by Dave Gibbons.

We were so excited about this series that John and I both flub our opening lines (it’s in the podcast – I barely ever edit anything).  This is what I was trying to read:

“How did a min-series about a superhero team comprised of a psychopath, a sociopath, a meglomaniacal  narcissistic egomaniac, an impotent self-doubting fanboy, a daughter trying to live up to a legacy’s expectations and an uncaring, indifferent god become one of the most awarded, beloved and reverent comics of all time?”

This is the question we ask and we do a pretty good job trying to answer it.  We enjoyed the comic and hope you enjoy the podcast.

Your comics pal,

Jim
