Sure to be one of the big international comics stories of this year and next, the attendant fanfare for the Watchmen movie, including the tie-in book Watching the Watchmen by Dave Gibbons has been hard to ignore. Gibbons was in Toronto last week for a signing. Quillblog has some photos here (that’s one above, with Mark Asquith as Dr. Manhattan). The guy in the Rorschach costume has a blog here.

As well, Gibbons and Beguiling owner Peter Birkemoe were interviwed on CBC’s Q and you can hear the podcast here. Best quote: Birkemoe’s closing opinion of the movie. You can also watch the whole interview on Q-Tube.
