Well, I have one, but its a keeper.  The WL here is pretty long too.  I hope you have more luck getting it at your library, it kicks so much a$$.

I am beside myself waiting for this movie, it looks like it might be somewhat more faithful to the comic than others.  No one will see it with me because I've been threatening to dress up as the Comedian for fun...

lol, my brother went as Rorschach this Halloween.  He's got the mask, the coat, the fedora, the whole 9 yards.

That is so awesome!  Rorschach would be my second choice, but the Comedian would be pure hilarity to try and imitate.

I love comics, manga, etc and the preview to Watchmen looks awesome. Need to add it to my WL. LOL

There are rumors that they changed the ending, but I just read an interview in Entertainment Weekly in which the director said he treated the book as the Bible when developing the film.  So we'll see.... can't wait!

io9.com has been following it pretty obsessively.  They're a really terrific SF blog.

FYI, Borders has a ton of Watchmen merchandise right now.  They have posters, bookmarks, and 3 different t-shirts in addition to various copies of the book. 

I'm going to see this in IMAX, I can't wait!
