The “Merchandise Most Likely to Make Alan Moore Cringe Award" will surely go to NECA, which is producing an extensive line of Watchmen spin-off items that are due out later this month.  NECA’s lineup of Watchmen gear includes a Watchmen Lunch Box, Rorschach and Dr. Manhattan Messenger Bags, Who Watches the Watchmen and Night Owl: Under the Hood Journals, a Watchmen Wooden Coaster Set, a Rorschach Desk Blotter and five Watchmen Wall Scrolls with images of Doctor Manhattan, The Comedian, Rorschach, the Silk Spectre, and Ozymandias.


The Watchmen Lunchbox features a prime Dave Gibbons Watchmen image on one side and The Minutemen on the other as well as a decorated thermos/drink container.  The Dr. Manhattan Messenger Bag is black with blue trim and graphics, while the Rorschach Messenger Bag is brown with black designs. 


The Watchmen Wooden Coaster Set features the images of Ozymandias, Rorschach, the Silk Spectre, and The Comedian.  The Rorschach Desk Blotter featured splattered ink arranged to look like Rorschach’s mask.  The Watchmen Wall Scrolls feature striking character images of Watchmen characters (including a “full frontal” Doctor Manhattan).
