Who Watches the Watchman 2 After All?

Dr. Disco MTBy Michael Fitzgerald Troy

 

Up is a relative concept. It has no intrinsic value. And, neither does revisiting Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons' Holy Grail of funny books with a sequel. What could be bigger blasphemy than trying to make a film version of the sacred comic tome Watchmen without Alan Moore's blessing or involvement? Why, making a mega-event prequel to Watchmen without Alan Moore's involvement or consent, of course.


DC's announcement of a mega event weekly series came hot on the heels of the company's announcement that there would be no mega event from DC any time soon.


I get it, ca$hola rules the day, and the fanboys will b---ch yet buy the 38-installment mega event with an as yet unannounced release date. Looks like they are puting a little more star power than the mixed bag sequel to Kingdom Come in this one. I think it isn't super necessary but I'm in. Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.


Adam Hughes on Dr. Manhattan WITH interiors? Holy blue balls, Batman! I'm not made out of atoms! Sign me up!


Of course, my prequel to Watchmen about Dr. Manhattan would have him living the linear San Francisco '70s swinger, "Disco-Doc." He's sexy and he knows it. Wiggle, wiggle, wiggle - yes!



 




Michael Troy is a deeply superficial person. Born in the midwest in the '70s, Michael came to Los Angeles to pursue his bi-polar career path as an actor and artist. 2005 saw the release of Michael's first published book, Homo-Hero's Big Book of Fun and Adventure (www.greencandypress.com). Michael has contributed to the Lady Gaga comic book from Bluewater Productions and has his hand in various other upcoming projects. Michael has performed stand-up comedy at all of the major comedy clubs in Los Angeles and is making his triumphant return to the main stage of The Comedy Store in September. Michael offers an off-beat sense of humor as the star of such youtube cult classics As The Gays on Film (www.youtube.com/fullfrontaltv), A Minute With Margot, a loving tribute to Superman legend Margot Kidder (http://www.youtube.com/user/rktcommander), and currently hosts a vlog style series Lethally Blonde over at www.monsterburg.com. Sitting alongside industry heavyweight Phil Jimenez at the "Divas and Lassoes" panel for the 2010 San Diego comic-con, Michael maintains and cherishes his "underground" status. A staunch believer in Blonde Ambition, Michael hopes his new comic about shallow blonde super heroes in Los Angeles, The Blonde Squad, will set the world on fire (or at least brighten it a bit).
