it's going to be a long year...

....until the release of Zack Snyder's motion picture adaptation of the Alan Moore/Dave Gibbons graphic novel Watchmen. Snyder posted some character images this morning to whet our appetites.

After Snyder's elegant visualization of Frank Miller's 300, which I reviewed here, I have high hopes for Watchmen, but also some trepidation that the novel's best qualities may not translate well into the cinematic medium.

update (12:43pm):
Here are the character photos along with images from the novel, for purposes of comparison. (Please, no one mention Mystery Men...)
