True Tales From The Comic Shop
Regarding whether the upcoming Watchmen film will connect with mainstream audiences:
Me: I mean, Watchmen is held in really high regard, but it doesn't have the public awareness of even something like Iron Man. Iron Man has been published for more than 40 years, Watchmen was only 12 issues published from 1986 to 1987.
My Beautiful Wife: Well, I guess it's hard to suck in 12 issues.
(Technically, this conversation happened in the car and not the comic shop, but still.)
