I’m reading Watchmen,
okay, I feel a little quilty because everyone I know at work is re-reading it to get ready for the movie. Somehow I have yet again missed that moment of reading what’s important at the time everyone else is. I’m going to blame it on my age, except I just looked and Alan Moore is just a year younger than me. (I hope I look a lot younger)
And along with my aging process, I’m not sure if I like my heroes as flawed as Watchmen. I like those guys/gals with super powers, the good vs. evil caricatures, and the sides are clearly delineated. Flawed, old, crazy is how I feel why do I want my superheroes to be the same, I think fantasy is a good thing. Am I totally against the grain with this thinking.
But I do get the angry, cynicism, irritation with the, forgive the word, “establishment”. So I’ll read on even if I’m a day late and a dollar short as my grandmother would say.
