Description

A NEW YORK TIMES Bestseller! 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 superheroes plagued by all-too-human failings. Along the way, the concept of the superhero is dissected as an unknown assassin stalks the erstwhile heroes. 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.

    Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons created something truly special here. What if time could heal all wounds and the impossible happens and they make up and re-collaborate to give this world a whole new chapter of life...... Now that would be an ending nobody would of been able to predict ;)

    This book is the single epitome of all Graphic Novel art. It really doesn't do it justice to read it on your phone. Alan Moore made this work of art with an extremely compelling storyline and world, which will keep you thinking. Some parts may be complex, but getting through them results in one of the most satisfactory reads you will ever have. A must read

    This may be a problem only I am experiencing, but every time I tap on Watchmen, iBooks crashes. I've uninstalled and renown loaded the book dozens of times, and nothing works. Please help me, I love this comic.

    This was the first graphic novel I've read and I'm glad I did. Very entertaining and thought provoking. It feature a comic within a comic, very Shakespearean. The characters were multidimensional, so the story never feels predictable. I don't want to ruin it, so I'll stop typing and let you discover the uniqueness of this comic. And if you've watch the movie already, the comic offers more depth to the story and characters like every novel turned into a film does. Put simply, if you like the movie you'll love this graphic novel.
  • Great character analysis

    Thrilling, idealistic, masked men are in an alternate 1985 America, fruits of prior masked heroes. In depth examination of all the characters leads through a twisting story that will capture you in its roots. Rorschach is arguably the best graphic novel character I have ever read about. His perverse ideals about justice and his anti-hero setting really set a great mood for the story. Watching twice, even three times will really catch all of its glory. Happy reading!
