I wonder if China Mieville was thinking of Rorschach when he dreamed up the Slake Moths in "Perdido Street Station"...

"Has March 6th ever been this exciting?"

Well, there was March 6, 1962, when Mystery in Space #75 went on sale. It featured "Planet That Came to a Standstill", which won the Alley Award for best comics story of 1962.

I see Rotten Tomatoes has it at 61% "fresh" and the main concern is that it may be too dense for those not familiar with the story already. That sounds pretty good to me.


Have you read/seen Dave Gibbons' Watching the Watchmen, Mark? That's also highly recommended.

Oh and enjoy the movie!

I did the Midnight movie thing last night and loved the movie. Been dragging at work, but it's worth it. Buddy of mine went with me and he's never read the comic, and really enjoyed the movie. I really didn't have to explain anything. I think the non initiated can get into the movie with out having read the book. Big test this weekend will be when I see it again with my wife.

OT, but I found another entry for your "Superpowers That Time Forgot". It's Superboy's completely useless except to wreck the economy power of reverse-alchemy vision, transmuting gold into lead. From Superboy #59. I've posted about it at Silver Age Comics today; feel free to use the scans there.
