Funny comic about Alan Moore
The Real Watchmen – Watchmen was originally proposed as a series called “Who Killed the Peacemaker?” and was to feature the Charleton Comics characters DC had recently acquired. This site speculates as to what Watchmen would have looked like in the event those characters had been used. (The Charlton characters were integrated into the regular DC universe instead)

Comic Book Resources on Watchmen’s origins Confirms that before even the “Who Killed the Peacemaker?” proposal, Moore was plotting to use Archie characters instead of Charlton characters. There are some Archie analogs in Watchmen: Hangedman/Hooded Justice and Fly/Mothman. (DC eventually bought the Archie superheros and made them into their Impact! line of comics)
