A DVD for diehard fans

On March 24 a Watchmen DVD was released. Those who are fans of the comic know that a large part was missing from the movie: that comic book the guy was reading. Well, don't fear, a special DVD was made with the Tales of the Black Freighter. The tale is interesting and I love the ending of it, but I was glad it wasn't included in the movie. It would have made a long movie even longer and it would break up the action too much. I applaud whoever thought to make this into a separate DVD.

Plus, the DVD also has Under the Hood. I thought this was an important part of the comic book, because it gave us a lot of insight into who the Watchmen were when they first formed. Under the Hood was a tell-all autobiography written by Hollis Mason, the first Nite Owl.
