Just wanted to point you all to this article.
All I have to say (other than, “It’s about damn time!”) is that it couldn’t have happened to a better book. If you’ve never read Watchmen, you really, really should. Now.
Not only is it a damn fine story told with awesome prowess both in the writing (I want T-shirts with half the lines of the book quoted on them) and art departments (I want many of the panels blown up and framed on my wall), but it one of the few truly influential books of the last two decades. If you’re one of those people who likes to read ‘important’ books, then there’s really no reason you shouldn’t have read it by now.
Go on then.
