Alan Moore is a god. That's all there is to it. He was the first and best to 'explode' the superhero myth by bringing it poetically and painfully into a 'real' world, and the only thing as good as this story is Dave Gibbons' exquisite, precise art.

    the best graphic novel ever. period. A story set on humanizing superheroes, it makes this novel accesible to just about anyone.

    For those unbelievers who think that comic books are reserved for the mouth breathers. Watchmen is intelligent, well drawn and thought-provoking. In college, I found this underneath a futon in a dormroom when I moved in. Three years later I had to return it to the original owner and went out and immediately bought myself a copy. I've given copies to a few people and they've all been absorbed by it and loved it. Watchmen is about a group of crime fighters who have been forcibly retired by the government. Jumping back and forth in time, it looks at a series of murders while broaching some politics.

    One of the greatest comics of all time. A must-read for anyone planning on seeing the soon-to-be-released feature film.

    This Hugo Award-winning graphic novel 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.

    So I gave into all the hype (and controversy) surrounding the movie and bought a copy. It presents a solid picture of a world with super heroes struggling with their limitations and demons while dealing with a world made anxious by increasing cold world hostilities. I love how the " Tale of the Black freighter" is added to the mix yet doesn't distract the from the main plot. I'm really looking forward to the film now.

      Hate to admit it, I'm also really stoked for the film.

    Good grief, will this movie come out already?! I read the graphic novel and wasn't that impressed. It was good, but not as good as I thought it would be. Oh well, I'm more excited about the film which I'll probably go see opening night.
