Overview

Watchmen by Alan Moore, Dave Gibbons

A New York Times Best Seller!

Considered the greatest graphic novel in the history of the medium, the Hugo Award-winning story chronicles the fall from grace of a group of super-heroes plagued by all-too-human failings. Along the way, the concept of the super-hero is dissected as the heroes are stalked by an unknown assassin.

This edition of WATCHMEN, the groundbreaking series from Alan Moore, the award-winning writer of V FOR VENDETTA and BATMAN: THE KILLING JOKE, and Dave Gibbons, the artist of GREEN LANTERN, features the high-quality, recolored pages found in WATCHMEN: THE ABSOLUTE EDITION with sketches, never-before-seen extra bonus materials and a new introduction by Dave Gibbons.

About the Author

About the Author

Alan Moore is perhaps the most acclaimed writer in the graphic story medium, having garnered countless awards for works such as WATCHMEN, V FOR VENDETTA, SWAMP THING and Miracleman. He is also the mastermind behind the America's Best Comics line, through which he has created (along with many talented illustrators) THE LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN, PROMETHEA, TOM STRONG, TOMORROW STORIES and TOP TEN. As one of the medium's most important innovators since the early 1980s, Moore has influenced an entire generation of comics creators, and his work continues to inspire an ever-growing audience.

Greatest Graphic Novel!
This is a great graphic novel to just pick up and enjoy. The characters are complex and keep you changing your mind if you like them or hate them. it is such a difference from the standard superhero comics and its nice to see that difference. The timeline jumps back and forth but is not too difficult to follow and we learn a lot about the characters through flashbacks/memories. The plot, though not too complicated, keeps you guessing until the end. This graphic novel keeps you entertained and really reveals the dark side of "superheros."

Watchmen
After seeing the trailer for the movie, I knew I had to read Watchmen. It is definitely the best graphic novels I have ever read, as well as one of the best novels I have ever read. Don¿t underestimate this book just because it¿s ¿full of pictures¿ (somebody actually said that to me). The story is extraordinarily compelling, and was even copied by the first season of a certain TV show. Also, the characters are excellent, and each has their own point of view and personality making them easy to care about. Even Rorschach, the above the law, black or white vigilante, and Dr. Manhattan, who, through god-like power, has become cold and detached from the world, are impossible to dislike. Apart from the story, the art is fantastic. I don¿t think that the graphic novel format hurts the book at all. In fact, I don¿t think the grand scale of Watchmen could have been achieved through any other medium.
