Oh, Watchmen. We feel like we’ve been reading about your impending release forever — at least in Internet years.

We would have to be either a baby or really old to be unaware that you’re opening this weekend, and as a service to our readers (and because honestly, we weren’t sure we had anything intelligent to add to the conversation) we’ve rounded up some of the most interesting Watchmen-related links we could find after the jump, starting with the semi-geeky and ending with the hardcore nerdy.
