Indeed. Here's creator Alan Moore on Rorschach.

I mean, part of it is his circumstances right, his childhood was awful, but yeah he's pretty horrible, even if he's fighting for something (probably) noble...

Whatís up with the ending? I totally felt the same way as King ďwtf?Ē Ha

The show within a show needs to happen ever Ep! The warning before airing was totally off the chain balling imo.

Only seen the film once, thought Rorschach was a good guy?

It's been forever since I'd seen it. I could either Google everything or have a discussion.

I just remembered him killing the rapist guy and for some reason I thought he went around killing bad guys.

EDIT: Also, the prison scene is just total badass. Maybe I just wanted him to be a good guy in my mind.

You should read the book some time. It's excellent and collected in a readily available Trade Paperback, and I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of libraries carried it. The movie is a mixed bag as an adaptation, as it seems Zack Snyder understood some themes and not others, particularly with Rorschach and Ozymandias. That said, it's undeniable how good Jackie Earle Haley's performance is, and the movie is riveting whenever he's on screen. But it's now clear the show is definitely a sequel to the books and not the movie, so it would help there (and is worth it in its own right, show or not).

I'll add it to the To Read List. It's gotten so long, but I might wait until the series is over.

Itís been so good so far.

Iím really happy I just watched movie even if itís an alt of an alt. I would hands down say itís the most intellectually dialogued superhero movie Iíve seen. Some of Ror journal is just deep.
