Call me a complete geek but could you get better timing on this happening? Yes, I'm aware it was likely a long time coming but still... whoa.
((pic somewhat unrelated though amusing))
If you were a fan of the comic, don't let any rumors deter you from seeing this(if you already haven't). Yes, some things were changed. Though it was still a rather fucking awesomely fantastic movie!!!!!11... *reins in fangirling* retaining a lot of the feel of the original work. So GO! See it! NOW!
If you've never read the comic... I'm not sure. Some people left the theater saying it was boring and they didn't understand it(srsly?) though I went with someone who'd never read it and she rather liked it. She was a bit freaked at the blue penis though... Ahem. So, if you can stand a bit of excess violence and a few scenes pushing the line of porn then I certainly recommend it.
Now I'm off to go watch the saturday morning cartoon thing about 50x with hopes of forcing the song out of my head via overdosing it.
