DC UNIVERSE: THE STORIES OF ALAN MOORE TP (Jan 2005)
I am a long time Alan Moore fan, and like most of the hardcore Watchmen fans, I went to see the movie on opening weekend.  I loved the movie, but it's really not a movie that's going to be understood by the masses.  People who think this is another superhero movie will in for a surprise. 

I love Rorschach in the movie!  You can read more on my thoughts on Watchmen at W♥M.

In the meantime, I thought it was interesting that DC Comics is trying to milk more money out of Watchmen by introducing their "After Watchmen... What's Next?" program which looks like a big waste of time for old fans like myself.   I understand that this is a program directed towards new fans, but I honestly don't think this movie will draw in baby new fans.

No surprise that among the What's Next program are other Alan Moore stories.  Among them DC UNIVERSE: THE STORIES OF ALAN MOORE, which includes reprints of the last Superman story with art by Curt Swan and George Perez.
