It sounds like something I would enjoy. I'll have to track down a copy.

Too bad they don't sell it in my state.

Rich Johnston, the writer, also does the Lying in the Gutter column over at Comic Book Resources.

I thought this was going to be a Watchmen parody with Jewish stereotypes. Boy, was I sadly mistaken.

Sounds hilarious. I'll look for it next time I'm at the comic store.

Okay, been to the comic store today. Picked it right up.

It's a pretty good spoof, but I think the commentary on how the comics industry treats it's creators (in particular how DC treats Alan Moore) is what really takes center stage. In fact, I had no idea Moore's situation was that complicated.

Also, loved all the Simpsons references. Especially, "Comic Book Guy"'s appearances. And, his conversion from Manga hater to Manga fan (I honestly never understood mangaphobic comic fans. To me a Comic is a Comic).

By the way, IMO Broadway's origin was the funniest part of the whole comic.

My only complaint, is that it was a little too short. But, I guess it got it's point across.
