The Twilight Lady is like the cardboard box in the toybox that is the Watchmen fandom. Nothing's in it. It's really only surface. And yet somehow everyone's got great ideas for it and wants to play with it.

(Not that I didn't give the box a spin ... noooooo.)

OK, so my copy of Watchmen is in New Jersey, but I was able to procure another copy for special purposes (i.e. gift) and decided to read it again before I gave it away. That trailer has apparently driven everyone crazy for this book again. Amazon.com is sold out, and when I picked up this one at Borders it was on a display that had obviously been larger at one point but was now depleted. It's a bit weird, since the trailer doesn't really SAY anything, except maybe like, "HEY FANS! REMEMBER WHEN THIS HAPPENED? AND THAT HAPPENED? JESUS CHRIST, IT'S DOCTOR MANHATTAN, GET IN THE CAR!"

Anyway, I decided to give it another read-through. I tried to look at what I wrote previously on Watchmen but it just seems to be "WOW, WATCHMEN RORSCHACH WOW SQUEE!!!" So ... here's the things I noticed the second time around.
