The delays before Doomsday Clock #10 have (for good or for bad) given us all more time to think about the story, and I, for one, have regarded the story-within-a-story, The Adjournment, as a real challenge to comprehend. It's got to mean something about the main story, but what? Here's my answer to that, one that took me through a lot more thinking than I tried to record in the post itself. I hope people can use this as a starting point towards their own answers for what the story means - it could well be that more than one interpretation is valid and more than one is intended. I'd love to know what other people think the old detective movie means. You may want to consider your proposed solution before you read mine.
