With the Watchmen trailer running before the mega hit The Dark Knight, interest in the Watchmen graphic novel is running high. Watchmen pretty much maintains the spot as number one selling graphic novel, but the recent resurgence of interest prompted DC to print another million or so copies. Apparently they are expecting interest in the movie to drive sales of the graphic novel through the roof. I for one hope they are right. I also hope the movie, which looks incredible in the trailer, will do justice to one of my all time favorite graphic novels.
Interest is so strong that there is even an "animated" version of the graphic novel being released in installments on itunes.
