  WorldWatchMen
Over at The V, Matt Craig deciphers what Tom Derenick was getting at when he said, "I received the script for issues #5 and #6 and you'd swear to God he was channeling Alan Moore at some points."
Which means that the description for Panel One was three pages of detailed instructions on how big to draw the breasts, and how proud the nipples stood.

"IN THIS PANEL, THE THERMOSTAT ON THE WORLDWATCH ORBITING MONITOR BAY HAS BEEN SET TO 13 DEGREES CELSIUS, OR TWO HUNDRED AND EIGHTY-SIX KELVIN. CONSEQUENTLY, THERE'S A BIT OF A NIP IN THE AIR, HA HA HA.

HA.

MISSUS ROBOTSON'S BREASTS ARE PENDULOUS AND FIRM, LIKE THOSE OF A YOUNG MADELINE ALBRIGHT. SHE'S ABOUT A 42"-E. LEFTY IS MARGINALLY BIGGER THAN RIGHTY, AND THEY LOOK AS IF THEY AREN'T ON SPEAKING TERMS.

HER SKIN IS PALE AND SLIGHTLY TRANSLUCENT, LIKE SOFT MILK CHOCOLATE, AND IT'S CLEAR THAT SHE HASN'T WORN A BRA FOR A WHILE. NO NASTY STRAPMARKS, HERE.

HER NIPPLES ARE PINK, AND HARD IN THE COLD. HER AUREOLES, WHICH ARE ABOUT THE SIZE OF A SILVER DOLLAR (AGAIN, LEFTY>RIGHTY) ARE A BIT BOBBLY.

IN THIS PANEL, MISSUS ROBOTSON IS BEHIND A CLOSED CELL DOOR. AND WE CAN'T SEE HER."
With scripts like this, The Absolute WorldWatch would certainly be an interesting prospect.
