Watching The Watchmen
Went to the launch of Dave Gibbons' glorious new tome Watching The Watchmen (Titan Books) last night. A lavishly illustrated examination of the creative process behind his and Alan Moore's seminal comic, it's filled with preparatory sketches, thumbnails and much, much more, beautifully designed by Chip Kidd and Mike Essl, making it the perfect Xmas gift for any Watchmen fan and helping the wait for Zack Synder's movie that little more tolerable. Given that one of my biggest fanboy moments was standing in Gibbons' front room, holding Moore's original script for Watchmen issue one, you can probably tell I'm quite excited by this.
