A Haiku about Before Watchmen, Courtesy of Rob Guillory

It's the best seventeen syllables you'll hear all day!

We've seen op-eds, analyses, condemnations, defenses and rants about Before Watchmen, all of which offer incredibly poignant points about creator rights and the role that corporate overlords play in the vandalism of timeless classics that never should be touched by anyone ever.

What we haven't seen is a haiku.  Until now.  Rob Guillory, the artist of the Eisner Award winning series Chew offered up his thoughts on Before Watchmen thusly:

A Watchmen cash grab
Alan Moore nonstop vomit
Blue penis for rent.

Such beauty.  Such depth.  Such illustrative summation of the issues surrounding Before Watchmen.
