WATCHMEN ANTICIPOLL

I got some email today inviting Freaky Trigger to SPAM its readers with adverts for top Nietzschian superhero emo flick WATCHMEN. I would never do such a thing - there will be FT posts on Watchmen and plenty of 'em, but like the New Frontiersman my editorial independence is too precious to me to do a deal with The Man. Especially as they weren't going to pay me for it.

However here is an ANTICIPOLL. And you can post your feverish anticipatory watchthoughts in the comments box and entertain me on my train journey home tonight.
