I was disturbed by the movie (bedroom cryfest over violence) so I decided to go out and buy my FIRST EVER COMIC BOOK to recapitulate and hopefully salvage something out of the first-row movie experience that left me feeling...like a girl. I went into the store and asked this nerdy guy to sell me a good 'un, and he directed me to Watchmen by Allen Moore. I was a little skeptical at first, but the more I read the book, the more I loved it. Esp all of the references that would make a high school English teacher all hot and bothered. My faves were the Gunga Diner, taken from Rudyard Kipling's poem Gunga Din, and the name of the band "Pale Horse."
