In scanning through articles on Project Muse (an academic journal database) just now, I noticed that hypertext author and scholar Stuart Moulthrop prefaced an essay on Watchmen with the disclaimer, “This essay reveals key plot details of the graphic novel Watchmen and the film based upon it.” Are we really going to start putting spoiler alerts on academic writing now? And about a book and movie that came out 23 years and 6 months ago, respectively? Should we?
