What The Watchmen Could Have Been


One of the few posters showing the Charlton characters that were bought by DC and formed the basis for Alan Moore's WATCHMEN. If Moore had been allowed to use these characters by DC his epic story would have had a much different look. I think freed from any kind of continuity allowed Moore to take basic archetypes and create his own mythology around them.

AWESOME post. I've never seen this ad but the art is spectacular. I realize that Watchmen characters will most likely never be used in other aspects of the DCU, but I'd LOVE to see an ongoing series or an animated series depicting other original Watchmen stories. The characters are too good not to utilize them.
