Confused 'Watchmen' Fanatics Mob A Terrified Michael Jackson At Local Book Store

Spotted at a Hollywood book store yesterday buying a boxed-set of his own music, Michael Jackson doused rumors he's gravely ill by sporting only a skimpy, single-layer face mask and bogeyman cloak.

Patrons instantly took notice of the faceless figure in a fedora and raincoat thumbing through a The Art of WALL·E coffee table book, and mistook the deposed pop monarch for inkblot-faced Watchmen vigilante Rorschach. Squealing fans quickly mobbed the singer, who despite being baffled by their queries of "Omigod I love you—is The Comedian here too?!" was happy to oblige their autograph requests just the same.
