Watchmen has been on my reading list for a very long time, probably since freshman year of college or so. I don’t remember why but I was thinking something like “What would superheroes be like in the real world?” My friend told me to read Watchmen. But alas I haven’t got around to it until the impending release of the film gave me a deadline to read it. So right now I’m about halfway through reading it during my down time that I have at work, but I refuse to read it in the subway for fear of being judged like this. I’m self conscious like that.
