Rorschach's face was shown several times in Watchmen.

I'm talking about putting Travis Bickel from Taxi Driver into Watchman, fucking retard
>>
>>77742491
Because comic books are not popular.
>>
>>77742423
Azzarello didn't give a fuck. BW Rorschach was the poor man's Punisher MAX and it literally ends with bird shit landing on the Watchmen logo.
>>

>and it literally ends with bird shit landing on the Watchmen logo.

No, the bird shit landed on Rorschach, it was in the shape of the blood splatter from Watchmen though.
>>
>>77742491
Huh.

I genuinely don't know. You should probably alert Sony's legal people to that. Not only will they likely take action because why not, that could make this worthless garbage more valuable to collectors as the art in all the newer copies would be different.
>>
>>77745641
Whoops. Haven't read this since it was first storytimed
>>
>>77745913
You might have confused it with the ending to BW Comedian, where it ends with blood on Comedian's smiley button as a reference to main Watchmen.
>>
>>77745891
Speaking of Sony, do you think they'll attempt to remake Taxi Driver?

They were both shit anyway, the only worthwhile minis were Cooke's, the rest were all trash.

In light of Before Watchmen: Comedian, Before Watchmen: Rorschach, and DK3: The Master Race, will Azzarello write more prequels and sequels?
>>
>>77742423
The Watchman movie KILLED the sales figure for the graphic novel so the ip had to be whored out for cash.

What's the harm?

DC's property, DC's prerogative.

Actually not true.

Paul Levitz had spent the bulk of his career in charge of DC Comics refusing to do any new books using the Watchmen IP.

AS SOON AS LEVITZ WAS OUT THE DOOR, the order came from above ordering DC to put out new Watchmen books. Either sequels or prequels, so long as they were new books.

Dan DiDio just could not fucking stop Warner Brothers from demanding it. Levitz was the only person Warner Brothers would listen to and not fire on the spot for refusing to do more Watchman books.

And indeed, the poor sales of the prequels led to them spiking the giant size finale (Moloch and Dollar Bill was supposed to be part of a giant size "finale" issue with other new stories, which have yet to see the light of day due to the backlash)
>>
>>77747987
It's fucking Warner Brothers. Of course I believe that.
>>
>>77742491
That's not Travis Bickel, that's gay porn star Steve Rambo. Founder of Catalina Films, a porn company that produced gay porn films so badly acted, their main star Ray Harley is currently putting the films (minus the fucking) on Youtube so people can make fun of them.

Good, but I wonder what else they have locked away. Maybe the rest of ASBAR.
>>
>>77748001
It's what >>77747994 said.

Warner Brothers has been wanting more Watchmen shit for ages. Paul Levitz famously drew a line in the sand against his corporate masters, refusing to whore the franchise out with new stories.

The moment Levitz gave up power over DC, his superiors gangpressed DiDio and company to do more Watchmen shit.
>>
>>77748003
I love me so bad porn acting but the sex in some of Catalina's movies is pretty hot.
>>
>>77748019
They only have the scripts for the rest of ASBAR. Jim Lee declined to draw the rest of the series due to DC backing away from Miller and the book in the late 00s over the controversy regarding it and Miller leaving DC to do Holy Terror as a non-Batman story
>>
>>77748032
Ray Harley was the only guy Catalina had that was attractive IMHO. A shame he never never did BDSM films, as he would have made one hell of a dom.....
>>
>>77742423
It's objectively awesome.

Look the whole effort is an artistic abomination, just enjoy a cool thing.
>>
>>77748046
But it's not ever a good abomination like the weirder albums in Lou Reed's discography.
>>
>>77742491
>>77742423
i know right, its terrible
thanks for bringing this pro mlg reference to light
>>
>>77748039
Yeah but ChiChi can't direct BDSM to save her wig. I do love her rule about condoms.
>>
>>77748109
Was thinking more Daddy Zeus.

Alternatively, Academy Men though they were more fetish films with no actual fucking. But Ray would fit in with Chip's B-Movie tone for his story driven films
>>
>>77747994
>with other new stories, which have yet to see the light of day due to the backlash

I don't think they even got to doing the new stories. And it wasn't just Moloch and Dollar Bill but also part of that Crimson Corsair story.
>>
>>77748124
I like your style. Daddy Zeus would have made an infinitely better Watchmen film than Snyder's mess.
>>
>>77747994
>Paul Levitz had spent the bulk of his career in charge of DC Comics refusing to do any new books using the Watchmen IP

What a faggot
>>
>>77748349

>implying

Because Before Watchmen turned out so well?

It's a singular work, there's zero need for prequels or sequels.
>>
>>77748281
The pirate story was completely collected in TPB though

IIRC there was rumor that Geoff Johns did an epilogue story that never saw publication, with the intention of setting up a second round of Watchmen shit (After Watchmen). It would have show Laurie in her new costume, inspired by her dad's costume, introduce a Russian counterpart to Veidt that was seeking revenge for the death of his family in NYC, and Doctor Manhattan contemplating resurrecting Rorschach after talking to Dan about how he murdered Rorschach and whether or not should try to resurrect him, since Rorschach coming back would be a catastrophic event in terms of Manhattan defying the set in stone future, to such an extent that it would permanently rob Manhattan of that ability if he brought him back.
>>
>>77748349
The logic always was that the watchmen was off-limits in desperate hope that one day, somehow, DC could convince Alan Moore to work for them again and do either the Minutemen mini he kept saying he might do or a proper sequel.

DC ALMOST did sequels in 1989 when Moore left DC but with D-List writers. Levitz squashed it soon as he took power and it was around that time, Moore mentioned that he MIGHT come back to do a Minutemen prequel series if he ever got froggy to revisit the Watchmen.
>>
Before Watchman was a goddamn abomination and I didn't even like the original.
>>
>>77748395
>Because Before Watchmen turned out so well?

I was okay with it

>>It's a singular work, there's zero need for prequels or sequels.

Well, that's really not your call to make. If the people who own it want to make more stories, then they have every right to

Ftfy
Before Watchmen was a cash grab, nothing more. The quality should be telling enough.
>>
>>77749041
>Well, that's really not your call to make.
You'll have to admit that Watchmen is retty self-contained if you include the side articles.
>>
>>77747982
I do. They should let the movie alone
