Watchmen is a comic series hailed by many and viewed as one of the greatest graphic novels to ever be created. It’s why Zack Snyder made a movie adaptation and why the book continues to sell long after its first issue released in 1986. It’s a big reason why HBO is producing a TV show in the universe, which is being headed by Damon Lindelof. Can he bring the same magic he brought to Lost and make Watchmen the next much talked about the TV show? Only time will tell when the show comes out this fall.
