'American Love' by FugueState 'American Love' by FugueState
Excerpt from Rorschach's Journal:

- 42nd Street: Women's breasts draped across every billboard, every display, littering the sidewalk. Was offered Swedish love and French love, but not American love. American love; like Coke in green glass bottles, they don't make it anymore. -



In observance of Independence Day in the US. If you haven't read the GN, it won't make much sense. So go read it, already!!!

Have a Coke and a... brood. >_> Hurm.

Where I am, we can get glass bottles - but they're from Mexico. xD I somehow doubt Rorschach would find that acceptable. :paranoid:

Not beer, not wine, not scotch...but coke. What better drink is there to brood with? None, I tell you.

Haha, sooo fantastic. As always!

I've read a little of it so far. Gooood stuff. Finished the V for Vendetta GN, which was obviously brilliant, lol.

Watchmen is one of those comics you can read and re-read, and every time you'll find something you hadn't noticed before. :)
