Want to understand the cultural impact of Watchmen? Parody comic Watchmensch manages to educate and entertain at the same time... as well as explain the intricacies of Watchmen's legal situation. We have an exclusive preview.
Watchmensch - written by comic industry rumormonger Rich Johnston and drawn by Simon Rohrmuller, doing his best Dave Gibbons impression - follows both the plot of Watchmen, and also the industry battles fought by Alan Moore after the success of his 1986 series with Dave Gibbons. While some of the jokes may seem a little corny (The Comedian is replaced by Krusty The Klown?), it's worth picking up, if only for the text piece explaining what happened to Moore after Watchmen's success.
Watchmensch is released next month.
