Collectors Cornered #23 - Before Watchmen & Free Comics for Kids!
Collectors Cornered is a weekly video column, filmed inside Collectors Corner in Baltimore. Join us every week as we discuss comic book news from a different point of view and get instant feedback from real customers on New Comics Day, as we literally corner them and and ask questions about comic books and related topics. Unscripted, reality CC.
This week we ask our customers what they think about the Before Watchmen announcement and follow it up with few photos from our team up with a local food chain on Kids Night, giving away Free All Ages comics.
Owner of Collectors Corner, Randy on Before Watchmen : "My favorite series and favorite character, Rorschach being utilized by a company to maximize profits on a property they own, i am fine with that. I really feel it works best when you fill in the blanks of the past and what may come with Watchmen,but if DC Comics wants to make money and place quality creators and industry veterans on these books to at least guarantee they are more than a cash grab it is totally fine with me as comic reader and retailer. The statues are of course a cash grab, but again i will place that Rorschach right alongside others on my shelf at home. I understand a lot of people are posting about integrity and honoring the original works, but Alan Moore of course has written many characters that had previously existed in some form or another like Swamp Thing, Batman, GL, and notably revised the original Charlton line to mold them into Watchmen's cast of characters as we all know them. He changed the way many of us looked at comic books with Watchmen, for that i thank him and respect the work as it exists. I do feel however that claiming that no one should add to or prequel-lize it is silly, after all it's fiction and Moore himself (Yes im going there too) revised and twisted many literary characters in both Lost Girls and LOEG to his own means. The one i am looking forward to most is Minutemen, Cooke can do no wrong. Can't wait."
