All of the discussion about next March's Watchmen movie has focused on whether it'll be faithful to Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons' seminal graphic novel. But really, they're missing the point — Watchmen shouldn't be a movie at all. It only makes narrative sense as a comic book, because so much of its strengths are tied to the comics format and it's all about the history of comics. A movie version, no matter how faithful, will be empty and pointless.
