I’d really like to be Rorschach right now, because then I could say, “Fuck this crap.” and go off to protest the end of the world. Instead, I’m Dan Dreiberg, Nite Owl II, lamest superhero ever; the shit gatherer who has to keep everything together to my own detriment. #lame
TIME TO REFERENCE MORE STUFF WE’VE ALREADY SEEN DISCUSSED IN THE GN
It’s like the BW authors are trying so hard to convince us they read the source material, but all they end up doing is re-hashing a bunch of things we’ve already dealt with while ignoring subtext and nuance.
I mean, so far in this particular issue we’ve seen; where Rorschach got his inspiration for his sign (no I do not buy that he got it from going to fucking church) we’ve seen a re-hash of his mommy issues without adding any additional context or meaning, and we’ve seen Rorschach acting decidedly like post-Roche Ror when I’m pretty sure this is supposed to be happening pre-Roche.
