Weekly Wonder Word: Mask.

watchmencards

(Watchmen cards by katiecookie.)

The mask symbolizes all sorts of deep human meaning and mystery. We don’t know who we really are, so we confuse the matter further and squeeze out just a bit more joy from our existential wounds.

Rorschach’s inkblot mask in Watchmen stretches the twist to exquisite lengths. It morphs and bleeds and portrays the imperfect portrait with precision. There may be no better mask ever made.

That, of course, does not mean we stop the masquerade. Here is a flashback gallery of the face covers from my classroom this year. Happy masking!

More Watchmen Trading Cards.

Again, these cards are a figment of lastchance’s imagination. They exist in virtual reality, just like the Watchmen movie that no one ever thought could be filmed. Oh yeah, that is now real. From the sound of the response after the first weekend, the film is very successful. Reviews are mixed, as always, and the $55 million first weekend box office seems to be right on the borderline of blockbuster and bust. We shall see if the movie is deemed a big winner in the long run, in the meantime you can groove on some spectacular imaginary cardboard, including the missing squid! Enjoy.
