The complicated history of Watchmen and Charlton comics

Fairfield County Weekly: Film - Secret Origins!

This is a really great little history lesson on how Watchmen came to be.

The two founders of Charlton Comics met in a New Haven County jail cell 1934.

John Santangelo was an Italian immigrant who started a successful construction company in Westchester County. In 1931, after moving to Derby, he got his start in the business that would become his meal ticket for the rest of his life and would also put him in a jail cell that fateful day: publishing.

Gramophones and "electrical recordings" were a new fad, and Santangelo found a way to profit from them, publishing booklets with the lyrics to popular songs. The Connecticut Historical Society, which compiled an exhibit on comic books in Connecticut in 2003, estimates that Santangelo sold around seven million of them.

But he didn't have any of the copyrights, and during a legal battle with the American Society of Composers and Publishers, he was arrested for copyright infringement. While in a holding cell, he met Ed Levy, an attorney who had been arrested as part of a Waterbury political scandal.

Dave Gibbons on the Watchmen movie

Artist Dave Gibbons' Gut Feelings on the 'Watchmen' Movie
...the thing that's always annoyed me in comics is where characters will be talking in a room and it will suddenly become apparent that one of them has to walk out through a door. So, all of a sudden the artist will draw a door where none had existed before. It just breaks the spell. It's like seeing a magic trick done badly. You know, comics is all about making it believable and helping people to get completely lost in a fictional world. All those things are really all in service of doing that. Wired: Well, do you think that that plays out on screen in what Zack Snyder is doing? Is there a relationship between the believability of the world or the concreteness of the world and being able to make a movie out of it? Being able to move it to another medium? Gibbons: I think so. I have seen a rough cut of the complete thing, and I've been on sets, and I've seen lots of set photos. Everything is done exactly like the comic book. I mean I guess in some ways by having such a comprehensively drawn comic book, they had a really good basis to build everything on. But certainly the amount of detail and the consistency of the characters aging or the way the action takes place in a given setting does have that ring of absolute believability. Obviously it goes beyond that, because there is motion and there's sound. But I think that the film does have the same richness as the comic book.
