"Who Watches the Watchmen?"

12 years, 3 months ago at Jun 15 1:23
I first read Watchmen when it was originally released in monthly installments, consisting of 12 issues back in 1986/87, and it blew my mind. I eagerly awaited each issue like I never had any comic before. At the time, I had pretty much given up on superhero comics and mainstream publishers like Marvel and DC, in favor of independent publishers. However, all that changed when I read Alan Moore's Wa... read more

A great comic book, and one which changed graphic novels forever by its mere creation. Even if you don't like comics, and perhaps especially so, you should read this. It takes the cliches and draws them out to the open. It makes the story real, and visceral. A must read.

What can unite humanity? This is a question pondered by philosophers and leaders throughout history and, appropriately, one that Alan Moore deals with in this gritty take on the neurotic life of a superhero. And what a cast of heroes they are—Dr. Manhattan, Rorschack, Ozymandias—all illustrated and colored in a 1940’s retro style captured brilliantly by Dave Gibbons and John Higgins. Their l... read more

Description: "Watchmen" redefined superhero conventions and re-introduced comics to an adult audience with a gripping, labyrinthine piece of comic art. Rorschach, a half-psychotic vigilante must convince his ex team-mates, now middle-aged and retired, that he has uncovered a plot to murder the remaining superheroes - along with millions of innocent civilians...Even reunited, will the remnants of the 'Watchmen' be enough to avert a global apocalypse? With a powerful storyline masterfully told by comics supremo Alan Moore and beautifully rendered artwork by the talented Dave Gibbons - this is the one that started the graphic novel re ... (more)

Even better than I remember

“Revisited this classic, and it was such a joy to see that it's even better than I remember. The kindle edition makes me appreciate the layout and details on the individual panels even more because, of course, If you double tap, each panel fills the screen. If you don't know the story, it begins with the gruesome murder of a former masked crime fighter, and a conspiracy is gradually unveiled which raises a very awkward question about how far to go in pursuit of true world peace. Does any end justify the means it took to get there? This deserves to be up there with the same high esteem as the major literary classics. You'll spot things on repeated readings which you didn't notice the first time, so it's well worth adding this to your collection.” read more
