Old Fashioney Photo of Minutemen from 'Watchmen'

In the world of Alan Moore's Watchmen, the main cast of the comic wasn't the first superhero team on the scene. Like New Kids on the Block to the Backstreet Boys, there was an earlier team called the Minutemen that both predicted and shaped the later costumed fighters of the comic. And, again like NKotB, their outfits are retrospectively funny to look at, as evidenced from the above shot from Zack Snyder's upcoming film adaptation. I have to say, the attention to detail is pretty impressive, as is the use of the Canon Elph's sepia setting. It's nice to know that even if this is a disaster, it will be an astoundingly accurate disaster.
