In an alternate world where the mere presence of American superheroes changed history, the US won the Vietnam War, Nixon is still president, and the cold war is in full effect.  WATCHMEN begins as a murder-mystery, but soon unfolds into a planet-altering conspiracy. As the resolution comes to a head, the unlikely group of reunited heroes--Rorschach, Nite Owl, Silk Spectre, Dr. Manhattan and Ozymandias--have to test the limits of their convictions and ask themselves where the true line is between good and evil. In the mid-eighties, Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons created WATCHMEN, changing the course of comics' history and essentially remaking how popular culture perceived the genre. Popularly cited as the point where comics came of age, WATCHMEN's sophisticated take on superheroes has been universally acclaimed for its psychological depth and realism.WATCHMEN is collected here in deluxe hardcover, with sketches, extra bonus material and a new introduction by series artist Dave Gibbons.

As a child, I read stacks of comic books—Batman, Sup...

This isn't the best story ever to me, but the depth is amazing. Every person who reads it is sure to see a different angle. Many things are going on, lots of side stories, metaphors galore, symbolism, connections. There's so much here, a person could fall inside and get lost if not careful. This...

There is a reason why this is one of the most well-known and loved graphic novels on the market. Aside from the brilliant artistic renderings, this clearly a prime example of what happens to the comic book when it grows up. It is both mature in content and very intelligent. The author and illustrat...

Unfortunately, this graphic novel doesn't have a synopsis written out on the book. Thus leaving the "about" section I usually include, bare.I first saw the movie back when it was in theaters. I didn't really remember a whole lot about it, but I remembered that I really enjoyed it. When it came time ...
