“Who watches The Young Watchmen? YOU WILL!”

As someone who is getting wrapped up in all the Watchmen hype, I enjoyed this spoof by Brian Hughes of Again with the Comics:

Young Watchmen returns viewers to the world of the critically acclaimed DC Comics and Hugo award-winning graphic novel by Alan Moore and illustrated by Dave Gibbons…100 years later! When not attending classes at Veidt High, OWLBOY, KID RORSCHACH, SPECTRA, JOHNNY COMEDY, and MANHA-TEEN have banded together to protect the world that their ancestors saved! With the help of OZZY, the World’s Smartest Lynx, they learn to work together, cruise the cyber-malls, and hang out at the nearest Gunga Diner…that is, when they’re not battling Alien Invaders, Supervillains, or the evil hordes of M.O.L.O.C.H.! These young descendants of the original Watchmen have vowed to carry on their legacy and protect the world at all costs. Who watches The Young Watchmen? YOU WILL!

UH Lord, this could turn out very wrong... If Alan Moore was upset about the movies, what is he gonna say about this? Anyway, the characters are quite a sight to see, maybe one can watch this and enjoy if taken away from the work it has it's roots on
