Summary
A hit HBO original series, Watchmen the groundbreaking series from award-winning author Alan Moore presents a world where the mere presence of American superheroes changed history, the U.S. won the Vietnam War, Nixon is still president, and the Cold War is in full effect.

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 features art from industry legend Dave Gibbons, with high-quality, recolored pages found in Watchmen: Abslolute Edtion as well as, never-before-seen extra bonus materials and an introduction by Dave Gibbons.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Warner's third packaging of a comic book serial as a graphic novel tells as trite a tale as Frank Miller's Ronin and Saga of the Swamp Thing (Booklist 84:598 D 1 87). It's a long, sinuous yarn about several costumed crime fighters (a la Batman but grungily workaday) trying to foil a plot to destroy them and maybe the world in an alternative 1985 U.S. over which Nixon, having won the Vietnam War and repealed the 22d Amendment, still presides. Totally squelching the impulse to toss the silly fantasy aside is Dave Gibbons' spectacular illustration. He emulates the style of hyperactive TV shows, changing point of view in nearly every frame and mercurially shifting to and fro in time in order to recap main characters' careers or to juxtapose the story's real world with the imaginary past of a horror comic that a minor character is reading. It's all flat-out dazzling: you keep turning the pages just to be surprised and delighted by sheer visual-narrative virtuosity, and you're never disappointed. Spielberg and Lucas should make movies this flashy. RO. 741.5'973 Comic books, strips, etc.-U.S."
