Watchmen Poster Comparison

I'd like to point you all in the direction of an awesome article by Plasmic Studios in which they put Dave Gibbons posters for the original books overtop the new posters that Snyder released for the film at comic-con. As Monika over at cinematical points out, Snyder has nailed these things, they're almost identical. I'd like to point out that this is most likely Snyder subtley trying to put all of our collective fanboy minds at ease about the direction he's going with this. He's all "C'mon guys, seriously! Get behind me on this! Look, i'm not even messing with original posters! That's how fucking faithful i'm gonna be for you guys! Stop worrying!" And then we're all "Yeah, yeah, but Ozymandius doesn't look egyptian anymore you asshole!" And then he cries himself to sleep at night with a shotgun in his mouth.

What do you think? Are you as impressed as I am that Snyder is going to these lengths to reassure fans?
