You realize that directly insulting the author of Watchmen and the fanbase you claim to be a part of isn't helping your case, right?
I’m just stating the facts. You can take it as you please.
Furthermore, it seems to me that a true fan of Watchmen would be more concerned with celebrating the excellence of this graphic novel and preserving its status in comic history, doing our best to ensure that DC doesn't do anything to undermine the book's integrity. A sequel, for example, that would definitively answer the fate of Rorschach's journal, thus destroying the narrative's ambiguity. Or a spin-off that would conflict with the book's canon. Or a reboot that would only be an imitation at best or a mockery at worst.
Why are you so single-minded? Why can you only imagine a direct sequel?! There are SO SO SO MANY more options.
The book at present is perfect. Leave it be. We as a fanbase shouldn't need some new continuations to hold our attention or shiny toys to collect. We don't need those things to feel good about ourselves and we don't need them to spread the fanbase. As long as Watchmen remains in publication and as long as its status as a groundbreaking comic is remembered, the new fans will always come.
The book itself doesn’t need to be touched. The story is self-containing. That doesn’t mean there can’t be things to expand on. Re-imagine. Offer a new and fresh perspective.
Look at the movie. Created new fans. Brought the Watchmen name out into mainstream MORE than the book ever did. Offered new views. After all, there were things in the movie that were different, and some were done better than the novel. But even if you disagree, at least now there is an option. At least now there is something else to talk about besides the book. And that’s my point. Sadly, all you people can see is a direct sequel. How sad!
