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 BATMN: 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.

If there was ever a story best told in the graphic novel medium, it was this. A smart and chilling story about the end of the world.
If you've seen he movie, than you've basically read this. They are very similar. What you get by reading the book is kind of like the Director's Cut of the movie: new scenes, storylines, and a few scenes that were done very differently. Overall, I'd say the book was better.

Okay so this was literally incredible, from the drawing and characterisations to the speech and pace of the story. If you're looking for a gateway graphic novel or comic then this is the one because HOLY SHIT IT WAS JUST TO RAW AND INTENSE AND REAL. ALL OF THE STARS, ALL OF THEM. Read full review
