Watchmen "more graphic than the graphic novel"?

I received the new issue of Christian Research Journal today and noticed that in addition to my Kant article, my summary critique of the film Watchmen is also in the issue (pp. 44-45, Volume 32, No. 2).

In the review I write, "Watchmen the film is, ironically, more graphic than the graphic novel. Broad in cinematic scope, there are moments when the material is masterfully handled, echoing the rich tapestry of ideas present in the source material. Much of the time, however, it is merely loud, violent, and disturbing."
