Alan Moore is either really stoked or totally livid right now

If you’ve ever wanted to know what Alan Moore dreams about when he eats too much breakfast cereal, slips into a sugar-induced coma watching TV and passes out in his underpants, well, now you know. SpongeMen SquareWatch is is the Watchmen trailer encoded through the underwater world Spongebob Squarepants, where the latter plays Rorschach — everyone’s favorite [...]


The first official trailer to the sequel of the Amazing Spider-Man dropped today. Looks promising, with Spidey’s arch antagonist switching from the Lizard to Electro, another infamous (and classic) Peter Parker nemesis.
