the comic was written in the 80's by Alan Moore, the guy who wrote From Hell, and V for Vendetta.
He never wanted anything to do with Hollywood and never took a cent for both From Hell(Movie about Jack the Ripper, with Johnny Depp), V for Vendetta, or Watchmen.
The whole story line made a lot more sense in the eighties when we were all wondering what was gonna happen with the arms race. I don't remember if energy crisis was mentioned in the comic...maybe the new twist they added to bring the story a bit more in tune with todays..."issues". Other than that, the movie did an excellent job of bring the characters to life.

Good movie...but they need to get some atomic pants for Dr. Manhattan.

thanks! you can certainly feel the "vendetta" type feel in the movie...strange flick - I find myself thinking about it for a few days afterward...like nixon winning Vietnam using the blue guy....eerie...also felt like sin city/bladeruner, etc...just a little weird - especailly in the background details/scenery...
