http://www.slate.com/id/2131269/ Now I don't want this to become a flame war or anything. I don't think he's completely ripping Watchmen to shreds or anything, just making a couple of points about comics. I agree with him on a couple of points. Watchmen is a great book, one of the best, but at the same time, stories that are just there for entertainment are great too, and there has been a trend in comics to have stories that are bit more negative. I like the different philosophies represented in Watchmen, and it does make you think, which is good, but at the same time, I don't think it's something to get too wrapped up in, and it isn't the kind of thing I'd want in every comic or story I read.
