Man, I really, really like this book. I think it's because it made me love a character I never gave two shits about in Watchmen and then constantly does new, unexpected things with her. This is the only Before Watchmen title to me so far that seems be really enriching a Watchman and not acting as a shadow of Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons in some form or another. Though I must note the secret plot to use 1960s youth music to control young hippies' minds in San Francisco and subliminally make them embrace mass consumerism is lifted right out of the Josie and the Pussycats movie. I also liked the bizarre cameos by the Beatles and Frank Sinatra. The Silk Spectre costume (really, it's more like a dress) Laurie designs for herself is 100% better and sexier than the awful costume she'll end up in.
“@ZackRyder: @CMPunk She played me bro” I got your back.
The best Expanded Universe book in my opinion is Shadows of the Empire (Amazon.com). Not sure if it's true, but I've always heard that Lucas himself felt that this was the best piece of EU material out there.
