I thought HBO’s Watchmen is amazing. Still processing, but the best hour of television I’ve seen in a long time. Everything was great about it
What's on your mind?
Interesting glimpse at Dr. Manhattan in the first episode - any ideas as to how this could connect to the story of the TV series?

A new feature is being tested at the moment at Watchmen Wiki. It's called the "User Walkthrough" and shows up in a box in the right side of the screen whenever you are visiting pages.
When you click on that box, you can experience a "guided tour" of the interface of the wiki, which can give you a better understanding of what each thing does and the options you have for contributing. It's something that hopefully turns out to be helpful for new editors.
Feel free to check it out as you browse the page, and leave any feedback comments about it here so that the feature can continue to evolve. Thank you!
I'm here to announce that Watchmen Wiki now has its own server on Discord!
Feel free to join in whether you want to chit chat about the Watchmen franchise, talk about your hype for the HBO series (which is nearly here) or even discuss wiki editing. There are channels for different Watchmen media, channels for wiki editing and even a couple of off-topic ones.
Use this link to join, and of course share it if you wish to invite others: https://discord.gg/4kbp25W
Going from the comic or spin off comics, are there any non human characters that could appear? I know veidt had a tiger thing but that died so im curious if anything else is left that could be shown?
And if so, will they be joining the upcoming tv show?
Share your comments and what you're most excited for and which characters you'd like to show up!
The first issue of "Watchmen" debuted in 1986, when the United States and the Soviet Union were still at a tense point in the Cold War, though even by this time, there was the beginning of a "thawing" between the two; the signing of the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty was only a year away, for example. However, the threat of nuclear war was still very present.
Thus, the threat of nuclear war is pervasive in "Watchmen," which was set in 1985, when things were even more tense between the two countries. So, we get clever little references to nuclear war throughout the book. For instance, when Rorschach is walking through the seedy side of town in "Watchmen" #2, there is a marquee for "Enola Gay and the Little Boys," clearly some sort of burlesque show, but a reference to the B-29 bomber the Enola Gay that dropped the very first atomic bomb on Hiroshima. That bomb was nicknamed "Little Boy."
Does anyone know where I could find the Nostalgia commercial video that was playing at the start of the fight between Ozy and Comedian at the beginning of the movie? The one that had Nat King Cole's Unforgettable playing. I assume it's a Nostalgia perfume commercial since I found an almost identical image for Nostalgia that looks just like the woman in the video.

Hello, I edit wikia about game AdVenture Capitalist. There is a building in the game, and somebody said to me that this building is from Watchmen. I don't know this universum so I have a question. What is it?
