When I was seven, I saw “Transformers: The Movie” on the big screen and, it’s true, I cried a little when Optimus Prime, brave leader of the Autobots, died.
And look at this—also posted on hollywoodreporter.com the same day, news of a movie version of “Watchmen,” the greatest graphic novel ever published.
And! “All the King’s Men”! My god!
These are three of the seminal literary experiences of my life, Snarketeers: tales of a valiant robot, a fallible superhero, and a wayward journalist. I can’t wait.
