You’ll either know what this is, or won’t.

If you do, we’ll probably be doing the same thing on Friday. If you don’t, read on.

My tribute to Watchmen, a twelve-issue series of comic books from 1986 which changed my life in more ways than one.

See that li’l yellow fellow at the top of the screen? Yeah, him and every other happy face I’ve ever collected, whether it be with a truly happy tone or a darker undertone, was inspired by this very button.

A long-in-planning movie adaptation comes to theatres this Friday, and yeah, you bet I’ll be there in all my fanboyish glory.
