    right, still not out. The rumours are that Frank Miller submitted it ages ago and everybody said well done (even though they didn't mean it). Then the top man saw it and said it was a pile of pap that didn't tie up any ends. Miller refused to re-do it and rumour is that he said he won't produce another book for DC (though if he's involved with the movie project, I find that a bit hard to believe). So it's a stalemate and both parties are waiting to see who blinks first.

    no idea. but either way I really want to read it. Whether it's pap or not, I still want to see Miller's view. Another rumour was that he refers, in a roundabout way, to sept 11th and that the corrupt government's hands were not entirely clean. Which offended the top man at dc.

    I honestly can't see a succesful version of the watchmen being made - there's just too much source material
