I never read the original, but I watched the movie which is exactly the same right? Either way I am indifferent to this project

It has!! I will not be reading this bastardization of Mr Moore's comic children! This is an outrage! I will never read another DC comic book in my life!! They have personally insulted me and everyone who has ever read a DC comic book!!
Eh...nm.. I will read them.. but Ill pretend to be mad about it.
(If I was going to make such a courageous and bold stand against corporate greed , I would have to walk away from my car/mortgage/career and live in a cave and eat tree bark.)
The controversy hasn't affected my decision not to buy Before Watchmen one way or the other. My main reason for not buying it is strictly economic. I spend far too much on comics as it is; I'm trying to cut back a bit on my spending, so buying another 35 comics for $140 over eight months is just not attractive right now. Maybe down the line I'll buy or borrow the trades, but I'm skipping the comics this time around. I still have my original Watchmen comics (far from mint condition) to read if I want to revisit that world.
The controversy hasn't really affected my interest in the prequels; however, I had very little interest to begin with. I loved the original Watchmen, but I just can't afford to pick up these prequels. I'm consistently over budget as it is (largely due to Marvel, but that's a discussion for somewhere else). I would have liked to pick up the Rorschach mini, but like I said, I really can't even afford to add one more book, let alone all the rest to get the full story. I'll probably just buy the trade when it comes out.
There's nothing to see here.
At first I wasn't going to buy just cause I don't think these prequels will do much to add to the mythos, but I have to say all the stuff about Moore and his relationship with DC has soured me to the whole thing.
