Thanks to everyone for the positive feedback I've gotten so far, you've made an old fanboy very happy.

This combines two huge passions of mine, one being the comic genius (?) that is Alan Moore and the other being kids programming from the late 80s which I would say is my biggest animation inspiration.

Believe it or not, one of the first ever things I ever animated/programmed was a crappy side scrolling Rorschach game where you go around beating up street punks, it was not only a fucking awful game but totally and unironically misinterpreted the source material, I would like to think I've grown somewhat since then but here I am, 5 years later, doing exactly the same thing! Perhaps just a bit more knowingly...

Love you all

Happy Harry

P.S. Thanks to Josh and Hans for their cameos at the beginning

This is amazing.

I am not into comics, but the watchman movie is one of the best superhero movies ever made. This is a good tribute to watchmen - in an alternate timeline where they don't have heavy ideological differences.

I thought this was a real thing when I was a kid haha :D

Now are the times I sit and think "What would Alan Moore think of this?"

oh man, i've seen this movie a long time ago, and its still awesome and enjoyable today, no matter how many years have passed.
i've gotta say, this was a perfect parody of watchmen; it is both beautifully drawn, with nicely drawn characters, good face expressions, flawless animation, good voice-acting, and its also full of MANY clever jokes+details, such as having ozymandias+bubastis existing as ''shaggy and scooby'' of the watchmen, the clever detail of rorsach being ''friends with the two german-shepherds'', showing rorsach's ''colourful butterfly'', (which was a sign of his post-mortem symbolism), showing rorsach saying ''no to drugs'' (the irony!), showing ozymandias helping the comedian from that fall, (spoilers!), and showing dr. manhattan's clones sleeping in bed after silk spectre is reading them a bedtime story, (good one!), those are some of the VERY clever, and great inside jokes of the whole ''watchmen'' madness.

i also loved the happy and cartoonish atmosphere that existed in the movie, while i also loved that cheesy ''saturday cartoon'' song: ''united together, friends forever, they are the watchmen!'' lalalala, dum di dum da, its the watchmen!

a very funny, nicely drawn, well-animated flawless movie.
i always liked it, and i will always love this great movie. excellent parody.
i would love to see a sequel/something similar to this in the future.
