Short 04: Watchmen and Before Watchmen.
Download podcast here.
We have a very special treat for you today, intrepid listeners! Join Braeden and guest host Jarrod for this in-depth look at Watchmen, widely regarded as one of the most important stories told in the graphic medium! It's also been the subject of many debates: are comics too adult? What rights should creators have? What rights should the publishers maintain? Additionally, Jarrod gives us his impression of the Before Watchmen miniseries, which focus on many of the characters of the original to tell more of their back story. Are the essential reading? Glorified fan fiction? Or somewhere in between? Listen to find out!
Original Watchmen talk: 00:00 - 00:11
Before Watchmen thoughts: 00:11 - 00:27
Let us know what you think of Watchmen - is it worthy of the hype it gets? Is it a seminal classic, or is it just a footnote that has been surpassed by other tales? And if you're reading the new series, let us know which ones you like, which ones you hate, and everything in between!
