Who watches the watchmen?

Trending Events
✌️ Watchmen on HBO (TV Series)

We've been waiting a long time for this one. The original graphic novel was published in '86, and featured a completely new, deconstructed look at the superhero genre. Author Alan Moore essentially asks the question: What if superheroes emerged in the 1940s, helped the US win the Vietnam War, and covered-up Watergate so that Nixon never left office? In Moore's new world, the US is on the brink of WWIII with the Soviet Union, freelance masked vigilantes are outlawed, and all of the former superheroes are either in retirement or working for the government.

Not your standard superhero flick, right?

The new HBO series is not a direct adaptation of the source material, instead a remixed version that tries to tell a new story still set in the world mentioned above. Tune in to HBO this Sunday to watch it unfold. You can watch the trailer here

Check out the Forekast website for all the events we couldn't fit into this newsletter.  Below are some other fund events we don't want you to miss:

International Day of Rural Women is a UN recognized day which raises awareness for gender equality and the empowerment in rural women and girls especially as it relates to increasing their capacity in the fight to combat climate change.

Saturday is Evaluate Your Life Day and its great time to take a step back and evaluate any or all aspects of your life.  For example, we’ll be reevaluating whether it's time to reintroduce cargo shorts back into our wardrobes, you can never have too many pockets.

Most fears are just our irrational reactions to minor adversities, face them head-on on National Face Your Fears Day.

It’s Dictionary Day this week, a book that everyone agrees is much better in electronic format.
