Editorial Reviews

Review

Watchmensch - written by comic industry rumormonger Rich Johnston and drawn by Simon Rohrmuller, doing his best Dave Gibbons impression - follows both the plot of Watchmen, and also the industry battles fought by Alan Moore after the success of his 1986 series with Dave Gibbons. While some of the jokes may seem a little corny (The Comedian is replaced by Krusty The Klown?), it's worth picking up, if only for the text piece explaining what happened to Moore after Watchmen's success. --Graeme McMillan - io9.com

Johnston's amazing commentary on the comic book world hits the nail on the head and could be a great history lesson for those who know nothing about the politics of comics. --Ryan McLelland - Ain't It Cool News

Watchmensch is important supplementary material to both the Watchmen graphic novel and film that fans and media alike should read. Because the comic book provides, in a highly fanciful and irreverent way, interesting (though subjective) background information on the movie event of the Spring. --Valerie D'Orazio - Occasional Superheroine

This is basically a parody of Watchmen, where it pokes fun at Watchmen and its legion of fans and they do it really well. It has a play on words with some of the dialogue. All and all, if you are a Watchmen Fan and know this a parody of it go and buy it. It makes for a great novelty for your comic book collection.
.....and oh by the way, its really inexpensive to get so if you have some extra cash to burn go right ahead.

All and all it lives up to its promise of being a parody that fellow Watchmen fans can value and laugh to. Rich Johnston is clever with the material, with the comic book industry and all he creates something rare: a book that follows in the same steps as Scary Movie but actually means something. And Simon Rohrmuller should be proud of himself for being able to copy Dave Gibbons' style of illustrating 99% of the way yet i still wonder if maybe the artwork could of been able to truly glow WITH COLOR! Now here's what prevented me from going the whole 5 stars: should of had more material to it! I mean only 23 and-a-half pages!? That doesn't even measure up to one chapter of the original Watchmen! Could of had the potential to be at the very least 2 whole chapters. And for $5 plus another $4 for S&H? I was even alright with it being $4 plus $4 but wow! Now i don't know whether it was Rich Johnston's idea or Brain Scan Studio's idea but whoever it was i'm starting to think they charged that high because of the opportunity to sell more thanks to the Watchmen movie just coming out. Seriously: $2.75 probably would have done it.
