I was seeing it as this is a moment where he starts losing faith in the country and gets that-this country is a joke attitude-which we see in watchmen.I saw that relationship totally different from what I think you're saying here. I thought this was more of an entitled group of guys that had a lot of power that could get away with a lot of bad behavior when they felt like it. The Kennedys with the adultery/Chappaquiddick/rape and Eddie with everything that he's done. It's natural for people of similar stature to be drawn to each other, especially if they have complementary skill sets/values and aren't competing with each other.I was disappoint in The Comedian #1.
I did not like the way Eddie was portrayed, he did not resemble the man in Watchmen. What was the point of his man crush on Jack and Bobby. I much prefer the interaction he had with Jack from the movie then him crushing on him during a game of touch football. To me it makes more sense that the man who tried to rape his teammate would kill the president and not hang out with him.
I am not buying the death of JFK is what changes him or at least the beginning of his change. Which is what the story seems to be implying. He was a vicious psyco before and after the death not because of it.
I don't see them as the group of idealists that you commonly saw presented in the media in the past, and which I think is what you're saying when you suggested that this is what would turn Eddie bad. I don't think that this is a story about what put him on the wrong track. He was already flawed. I'm thinking that this is more a Kennedy assassination conspiracy story, and that the next step in this story is going to be about why J. Edgar Hoover wanted to keep the Comedian away from Dallas.
I actually quite enjoyed this issue. That makes one of us, so far.
