The new trailer for Watchmen just got released today on Yahoo Movies. The movie looks really good, and I'm pretty excited about going to see it when it comes out. One of the cool things in the trailer is Rorshach's mask, and how it changes patterns as he moves. I think it would be cool if we arranged for a trip to go see the movie when it comes out.
I also found an interesting article in Yahoo News about a Japanese man who petitioned to be able to marry a comic-book character. (http://news.yahoo.com/s/afp/20081030/od_afp/japancartoonmarriageoffbeat_081030061822). It's pretty crazy how manga has such a profound an deep-rooted presence in Japanese pop culture. I thought it was pretty funny how the prime minister loved reading manga, but had no time to read them anymore.
