But the editor seems to go along with the misperception. Now, if even the editor of the thing didn't fully get it...

    There's no such thing as "Watchmen".

    The 1930s-1940s organization was called the Minutemen, and the (shortlived) 1960s (1970s?) organization was called the Crimebusters.

    Good point. There might be a danger of that.

    Well, heck, what is DC waiting for? After Watchmen: The Minutemen and After Watchmen: The Crimebusters must be on tap next!

    Right now, what people at DC are thinking:

    "Bet it could be the best one... think of the irony: a comic about a guy who sell comics, made by Dc comics in a desperate attempt to sell some more comics.

    Call some indy guys, call it 'meta'. May work..."

    =p

    No? Then how about "Gotta regard Blaxploitation as a relatively brief trend with a cultural significance that quickly evolved beyond the baser elements of its beginnings and which is best understood if not always appreciated when placed within the larger prevailing context of the era in which it first appeared"?
