Watchmen in Ohio media

The Other Paper:

It’s safe to say this week’s opening of Watchmen is a big event in Ryan Seymore’s life.

“In fact,” he said, “my wife and I have scheduled the birth of our next child around me being able to watch Watchmen on opening night.”

“I’m a pretty big fan, you could say.”

As owner of the local Comic Town chain, Seymore has made lots of money off the Watchmen saga, which first appeared as a series of comic books in 1986-87 and later was turned into a graphic novel.

Even though the story has been around for nearly a quarter of a century, fans still snap up new versions of the graphic novel that are distinguished from other versions mainly by the artwork on the cover. And now, with the story about to hit the silver screen, Seymore is selling even more.

“We have gone through about 150 of them in the last month or so,” he said.
