Doomsday Clock is the slowest of slow burns. Its biggest mysteries—like just where Dr. Manhattan is in the DC Universe, or how the hell a mime can mime himself a lethal weapon—still remain barely explored, let alone solved. But it’s finally started to lift the lid on one of its most intriguing additions: the new…
The first issue of Doomsday Clock is here, and with it a chance to explore the world Watchmen left behind—and how it will eventually tie into the wider DC Comics cosmos. While in some ways it’s unsurprising that this world is even grimmer than we left it, there have still been some major changes since we last saw…
Alan Moore’s distaste for DC’s ownership of his and Dave Gibbons’ work on Watchmen is widely known at this point—and considering the fact that neither Moore or Gibbons were contacted for the characters’ use in Rebirth, that distaste is still very real today. This new comic cover is unlikely to help smooth things over…
Alan Moore deals in some of the comic book characters he's created and written for in The Killing Bluff, a painting by J.K. Woodward.
You can call them Rorschach tests, or you can call them inkblots. But what happens when you merge the idea of abstract symmetry with photography? You get the incredible entrants in this week's Shooting Challenge.
Parks and Recreation's Ron Swanson is a stern libertarian with a heart of gold and and endless appetite for bacon and eggs. Watchmen's Rorschach is a merciless objectivist who eats beans and smashes skulls. Together, the form the fearsomely deadpan vigilante Ron Sworschach.
You've seen the video of how to make a Rorschach mask. (If you haven't, it's under the cut.) How does the paint change color?
In 1921, Swiss psychologist Hermann Rorschach published his methodology of evaluating patients with inkblots. For this week's Shooting Challenge, you are going to create photographic versions of his famous test.
With Kick-Ass in the theaters this weekend, you may be considering superheroics as a career yourself. But wait! What kind of superhero will you be - the neighborhood champion or the deodorant-eschewing, bloodthirsty lunatic? Find out now!
The Rorschach test is a hallowed tradition in psychology, and nobody is supposed to have access to those smudges that patients project their psyches onto. But a Saskatchewan surgeon has flouted tradition, by posting all ten inkblot images to Wikipedia.
This week in the App store, things got a little deep: We discovered haunting new sounds, created fine art, psychoanalyzed our friends, read great literature, experimented with prescription drugs, and even reconnected with an estranged child. Your turn!
We've shown you Ponderosa's... individual take on The Dark Knight before, but now the slash artist has turned her attention to Watchmen, and revealed that never-before-known connection between Sally and Ozymandias. Yes, really. Possibly NSFW.
You've seen the posters, the many trailers and featurettes and followed the lawsuit. But with Watchmen hitting screens on Friday, you may still be wondering what it's all about. Let us try to help.
That would be Dr. Manhattan. Yes, he spends a lot of the film naked; being transformed from an everyday nuclear scientist into what is essentially a glowing blue god with powers and perspective beyond those of normal human beings tends to make you less bothered about things like "clothing," apparently.
This is kind of a trick question. In the original comic, there isn't actually a group of people who call themselves the Watchmen. The superheroes all belonged to teams called the Minutemen, named for Paul Revere's militia during the American Revolutionary War, or the Crimebusters. The comic takes its title from the…
Here are a couple of exclusive featurettes showing new Watchmen behind-the-scenes footage, including Dr. Manhattan looking like a Tron dork and Silk Spectre looking like the foxy, yumtastic, kick-ass heroine she is. Spoilers ahead.
Take a peek inside the twisted mind of beloved anti-hero Walter Kovacs, with an extended clip from Zack Snyder's Watchmen - and decide for yourself, is this the demented vigilante Rorschach I've been dreaming of?
The next Watchmen video diary is out, and it showcases all of the dohickeys and whatnots that fill up every single inch of Zack Snyder's movie. The best part of this film will be noticing all the little details and easter eggs and shouting about them. In this diary from Movie Web, you get a closer look at Rorschach's…
Someone stole Rorschach’s plums and he isn’t happy. “Blotchmen,” a short comic created by artist Kevin Cannon, skewers Watchmen’s psychotic masked man by putting him exactly where he doesn’t belong: in a children’s book. Rorschach tracks his missing fruit through Harold the Purple Crayon and Where the Wild Things Are,…
