The Tulsa Race Massacre in 'Watchmen' Is Based on Horrific Real Life Events

By

HBO's The Watchmen started with a bang and is stirring up a lot of excitement, controversy, and disbelief among audiences, much like Alan Moore's graphic novel series first did when it debuted in 1985. 

And while the Watchmen film did have some cool moments, it was ultimately panned for not capturing the same "feel" of its source material.

The series, however, doesn't have that problem and is pulling punches that fewer shows on TV are: like its recreation of the Tulsa Race Massacre.
