It's Watchmen Time: Dave Gibbons on the Movie
On the Most Satisfying Parts of the Watchmen Experience:
"Finally getting it done. Because it was such a huge amount of work, and because it did rely specifically on Alan's talents and mine and [colorist] John Higgins' talents. Until we'd done that last page, we really didn't have anything; it couldn't have been handed off to some other writer-artist team. So there's a sense of achievement of having got it done. And I suppose over the years, really, it's just the thrill of seeing it continually in print and [at] every convention I go to, people reading it for the first time or people bringing in their fifth copy of it because they've worn their other copies out. And obviously, [the movie] is a huge thrill for me as well -- to see pictures that were kind of germinated in Alan's scripts and then I gave birth to, if you like, and then to see [them] grown up and off in the world doing their own thing in a movie. I never would've imagined anything of this scale or complexity. So yeah, I've been very lucky to be associated with such a thing. And one of the proudest things about it, movies and everything aside, is I've always loved comics and the fact that it's brought people into comics is one of the things that I'm most excited about."
