Wow, this is really awesome! I mean the original is far beyond everything and we were in a german comicforum about to start with a rereading of Watchman just today...so what a coincidence. First i really didn't know what to think exactly but when i scanned the creative teams i thought "woh, this could be really big".
I don't have the feeling that DC is doing this just for the money. With all the artists and authors and the style, it seems that they are really trying to be gentle with it and respect the original.
Anyway, know i'm pretty much hyped by the awesome covers and stuff. Looking forward to Summer. First Night Of The Owls and then Watchmen. Gonna be expensiv, but so what. 2012 could be a really awesome year in comic book buissness!
