Daily Sketch 23 - Watch-Mart by SeanRM Daily Sketch 23 - Watch-Mart by SeanRM
This is a special Daily Sketch, and requires a bit of explanation... Get comfortable, because there will be a lot for you to read.

First off, I want you to know that:

- This is not a slam against the Watchmen Movie. I saw it last thursday at the midnight showing, and I greatly enjoyed it. I'm looking forward to seeing the Director's Cut edition, with the hopes that it will resolve some of the problems I had with the film.

- This is not a prediction of Alan Moore's feelings. The only guy who can accurately say what Alan Moore thinks of either the movie or the book being at WalMart, is Alan Moore. I am not Alan Moore, as you have probably already guessed.

- This is not a slam against Wal Mart. I shop there fairly regularly, because I am not rich, and it is often times the cheapest place to get things. Frankly I don't give to shits whether or not folks like or dislike Wal Mart.

Now that we have covered what it isn't, allow me to ellaborate on what it is...

I was recently at one of the nearby Wal Marts with a few of my friends. (We don't hang out there, we just go to buy drinks or whatever, then relax elsewhere.) As we were heading to the pet department, we passed by the magazines and books. To my surprise there were multiple copies of the Watchmen GN on the racks.

Now while I'm happy to see a graphic novel on Wal Mart's shelves, I must admit there is something about the sight of Watchmen at Wal Mart that just seems wrong to me.

That feeling of unexplainable wrongness, that is what this comic is about. Why Alan Moore... Because he is a fun guy to illustrate, and perhaps it's the inner Alan Moore that is generating this uneasy feeling.

It's all a sick joke. The Comedian would love it.

i agree, there is something "weird" and "unsettling" seeing a shit-ton of copies of Watchmen in a walmart, and I CANT PUT MY FINGER ON WHY. It just seems "wrong" i guess?

Y'know, I enjoyed the movie, too, and I think this is a fantastic comic. It really is a clever idea.
