Three Most Beautiful Words by Hikariforce Three Most Beautiful Words by Hikariforce
Somewhere, someone out there is saying the three most beautiful words in any language.

Please help me


First time I've ever drawn anything based off a Star Trek quote, I'll tell you what... but it's a heartbreaking concept. Most people think that it's "I love you", but... the idea of admitting yourself to another and admitting that vulnerability. It's maddeningly sad.

Anyway, I immediately thought of Rorschach when I heard this [spoilers! Sandwich Board Man is Rorschach] because he really doesn't want any help from anyone, ever. But here, clearly, he needs it.

I don't know what happened to his mask.

Beautiful and moving quote...and so true of the character. He doesn't want help...even when he truly needs it. Poor little guy. Always so tragic, yet still, easily one of the best written characters I've come across.

It was inevitable that Rorschach was going to get his ass handed to him. That he never did, as well as the lack of closure between Niteowl and Rorschach, is testament to how poor Alan Moore's characterization is.

Yeah, the ending always felt kind of rushed to me. I was really hoping to see some huge world panic right after Adrian's (spoiler) giant squid blew up half of New York. Everybody just went peaceful after that...

Looking at it now, I guess there never really was any closure between the two. They still seemed to have a lot of issues. Wasn't any closer with Adrian either. What the hell happened to him?

It was hinted at that he became a war profiteer. But all the characters are really caricatures. Adrian is written as a closeted yuppie evil-doer so Moore fills out the stereotype.

Fans want to say "archetype." Bullshit! Something's either well written or it's not. In the case of Watchmen you have an ambitious plot with hamfisted storytelling. And the only reason he got away with it, that it's considered a masterpiece, is because the comic medium is still looked at as juvenile literature.

How often do you see Captain America cry? What food gives Superman gas? When will they explore Spiderman's social awkwardness? Not happening. When heroes can cry and villains can long things will have changed.

One thing that might've really did it in was the fact that the characters couldn't or were hard to be sympathized with except for maybe Rorschach. But Rorschach's bad-ass and I think he was one of the few things Watchmen did really well. Maybe that's just because Moore delved into his character the most, but what the hell. Sufficed to say he was the only one I liked. :)

You're right though, the storytelling could have used work. I give them points for creativity, it was nice to see that they gave a twist to what you normally see; that was probably why it was called a "masterpiece."

I don't know, Watchmen just seems a bit...shallower than advertised. Maybe with a few more chapters and a shit load of elbow grease they could have pulled it off and made it something mind blowing.

Either way, it's still a fun read. It did something outside the "norm" (sort of) and in some places there was some good dialogue. I like to think of Watchmen as a bit of an experiment in terms of the comic book world. Whether or not it worked is up to the reader.

Oh, sorry Hikariforce, the picture's really nice. ^^;

Have you read the Watchmen comics or no?
If you haven't, you should. You really should.
