I haven't read Watchmen in at least a year. And I don't know where my copy is. Do I buy it again? Or should I spring for the Absolute Edition?

I'd spring, but only if I could find a dirty cheap pre-read copy. Those things are expensive! I was at one point looking to sell my original Authority run to finance the first hardcover..... but what's the point. The comics WILL do fine.

...Episode 1907 of The Simpsons ("Husbands and Knives") is not only the funniest episode in ages, but it has Art Spiegelman, Alan Moore, and Dan Clowes as themselves in what may be the best celebrity guest appearances on the show since, well, possibly even Aerosmith in the classic "Flaming Homer" episode from ages ago.

How can one argue against the three of them revealing themselves to be muscular superheroes (including a Maus mask for Spiegelman!)?

The gag with Spiegelman, Moore, and Clowes was a funny idea, but for the most part, poorly executed.
The episode was like any other Simpsons episode in the last 10 years...the definition of mediocrity.

C'mon, not even a smile for "Maus is in the house"? Can anything make you happy? No, and you wanna know why? You're a hater. You need to stop hatin'. :P

Doing a Watchmen re-read this weekend and I'm on issue 5. It's unbelievable, in case any of you had forgotten. Unbelievable.

Re-reading Watchmen myself. You can tell how good a book is by how it holds up to re-reading. If you can't get through it, it wasn't that good. If it's as enjoyable the second time, it's a good book. It's a great book if each subsequent re-read is better than the last.

I can tell Watchmen is one of the few superhero comics to truly be a great book. I'm amazed at how much I'd forgotten, and it's more "fun" (for lack of a better word) to look for details and follow the character development more closely than worrying about the giant squid thing.

The irony of all the characters is absolutely amazing. I'd not really noticed before how Rorschach is an ultra-conservative, yet is driven to be an outlaw by an ultra-conservative state. Or how so many of the characters respect the Comedian, even though they all seem to hate his guts.

I have never really understood the symbolism of the [first purple block], but it's odd enough to stand out in your mind after you see the art, that's for sure.

I'm thinking about getting Watchmen and reading it before seeing the film. I never read it. I've always heard that it is good. That'll be the first "comic" I've purchased in about 15 years.

It's very good. I just was talking to a non-comics friend who read it and agreed it one of the very few graphic novels that is a great piece of literature.
