What if there was a Watchmen cereal?



The above image is a humor piece I created after wondering what a Watchmen cereal would look like. Of course, Watchmen is one of the most critically-acclaimed and artistically respected comics ever written. But what if DC had taken it into mass-licensing territories? After all, the '80s had some of the most blatant commercialization we've ever seen. Anyone and anything had it's own cereal (Urkel-Os, anyone?)
On the flipside, what if DC was to release this today as a 20th anniversary celebration? Would people complain on message boards until there was no longer any bandwith? Would Alan Moore use his magic to wipe AOL/Time Warner off the face of the earth? Would dealers buy boxes by the caseload and sell them for $20 a pop at WizardWorld?
So in closing, remember that THE ABOVE IMAGE IS JUST A PARODY! Please don't go back to the DC boards and tell everyone about this yummy new Watchmen cereal!!!!

Afkap: good idea, do it up. I tried to figure out how to edit the links but I couldn't figure it out.
