If you have never heard of Watchmen, prepare yourself for an introduction to a world of pure brain candy, you will go out and buy this and then personally thank me for bringing it to your attention. So it's a comic. Do not let this put you off. It is a fine work of literature that trancends any...

With the critical acclaim that this graphic novel has attracted over the years, its reputation preceded it. So as I sat down to read it, my expectations were already sky high. Would it live up to its reputation? The first few pages were unassuming enough, the artwork seemed average; the writing...

ABSOLUTELY OUTSTANDING! This is the comic series that I thought was the pinnical of Alan Moore's career... until the next thing he did, then the next, then the next. The man is a fully certified genius! Ahem* anyway Watchmen was originally published as a 12 issue miniseries in the mid-eighties...

All

None

Who watches the watchmen? It's a phrase to think about. And it's the real motto of this limited series published years ago. Imagine yourself in the middle of a world, with only one being with superpowers, but a lot of people trying to be only a percetage of what the one and only superhero is. Mix...

Completely self contained world.

There will never be a sequel!

Widely regarded as the definitive comic book for non comic fans 'Watchmen' tapped into the comic boom of the 1980's along with Art Spiegelman's 'Maus' and Frank Miller's 'The Dark Knight Returns'. Single handedly re-defined the genre by examining how the world would really react to having super...

I read comics when I was a kid, then went off them as I grew older. I got bored of superheroes, always winning their fights but never really defeating the enemy either. A few years later I came across Preacher. Then Transmetropolitan. Then Sin City. None of these featured superheroes or villians...

There's not enough

I bought this graphic novel over 10 years ago, my copy looks like it has been well read, and it has. When I say to people have you read Watchmen they've often never heard of it, so I lend it to them. Then they become trapped, and before you know it, they are lending it to their other friends. If...
