Watchmen, Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons

11.06.2011. Yes Ma, my reading is indeed as neglected as this page. Although, I did manage to filler-re-read Watchmen over the past week. So there's this bit where Jon's telling his story - and he starts with the old photograph and builds on it. What an absolutely stunning piece of story-telling! I read that over and over again, just to go over how that story gets built, how the details get folded, one on top of the other, almost like a song, almost like poetry. I find myself thinking, there's a reason why this book is that awesome. Sigh.
