January 30, 2009 - Watchmen / scoop on companion book

Scooped by The Swollen Goi... on Friday, January 30, 2009

The Swollen Goiter of God sends us this scoop about The Official Film Companion book for Watchmen and it (and our scooper) spill the details about the ending of the film. We've placed that part of Goiter's scoop behind our curtain of spoiler protection so if you don't want to know how it all goes down in the film you'll still be safe to read Goiter's scoop!

Plus, I probably should have put Watchmen somewhere in the title.

I went back to the comic shop, and looked back through the books, and it occurred to me that I lumped both The Official Film Companion and The Art of The Watchmen together. While there is a panel or two from [SPOILER]the Gibbons rendering of the new ending[/SPOILER], the entire sequence is in The Art of The Watchmen.

For the life of me, though, I can't remember which book the stills from the Black Freighter cartoon are in.
