I am re-reading the comic as we speak, in preparation for the movie. The reason there is so much hype is because while you can almost never say which piece of work is the best in its respective field, Watchmen the graphic novel is almost universally hailed as the best piece of graphic work of all time. And from everything anyone has seen so far, Snyder has done a fantastic job, and he worked very closely with Dave Gibbons who illustrated the actual novel, to bring exactly what was on the pages to the screen. I wont be attending the midnight screening on Thurs cause I have 8:30 class on Friday, but I will be going on opening night sometime. So Im very pumped for it.
