Zeppelin Fight

I've had a very hectic couple of weeks, so I haven't done a lot of work on the Lord Bastard project.

The shots in the trailer where Dr. Manhattan & the Comedian are in Viet Nam always catch my eye because it looks like they dropped them right in the middle of 'Apocalypse Now'. I'm also looking forward to the flashbacks to the original Minutemen back in the 40's & 50's. That's probably the closest thing to a big budget Golden Age superhero movie that we'll ever get:
