Episode 7: Watchmen w/ Luke

Who watches the watchmen? Wesleigh and our guest do — Katie merely survives the experience. For this week’s Marathon May superhero film, we tackle the incredibly long adaptation of Alan Moore’s renown comic Watchmen by Legendary Director Zack Snyder. Along with Luke, comic creator and connoisseur, we discuss why different genres of comics are important, how this movie is similar to P.S. I Love You, why you should read the book instead, and introduce Katie to Howard the Duck.

Meet this week's guest, Luke! (and Tallulah)
