All right, I take it back. At first, I thought this was just DC Entertainment cashing in on one of their cash cows/ untapped properties for a live-action series. Well, it is still that, but now I see that there is a lot more going on here. What happened next in the world of the Watchmen could be a fascinating story. I'll certainly be checking it out in October. #AFJ4LIFE
