Feeling a little professional love

I just wanted to gloat a bit about how happy it makes me that I'm in the sort of field where knowledge of Neal Stephenson actually gets me a useful professional connection, an e-mail requesting a letter of rec is replied to with a ps-recommendation to read Alan Moore's The Watchmen because it's 'one of the great graphic novels of our time,' and I can send a link to one of my profs about the McCain camp's insult to geeks and he replies 'Ouch! No invisibility cloak there!' I can only hope that my professional life continues to be as peppered with friendly geeks as my student life.

I'm going to totally 2nd that praise of 'The Watchmen'. And who's a better source of comic book knowledge than me? (and, err, kate)
