Watchmenby Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons
Synopses & Reviews
It all begins with the paranoid delusions of a half-insane hero called Rorschach. But is Rorschach really insane, or has he in fact uncovered a plot to murder superheroes — and, even worse, millions of innocent civilians? On the run from the law, Rorschach reunites with his former teammates in a desperate attempt to save the world and their lives, but what they uncover will shock them to their very core and change the face of the planet! Following two generations of masked superheroes from the close of World War II to the icy shadow of the Cold War comes this groundbreaking comic story — the story of The Watchmen.
"Watchmen is peerless." Mikal Gilmore, Rolling Stone
"A brilliant piece of fiction." The Village Voice
"Who watches the Watchmen?" The question is answered in this popular trade paperback collection of the groundbreaking maxiseries written by Alan Moore (The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Swamp Thing) with art by Dave Gibbons (The Dome: Ground Zero, Martha Washington Goes to War).
A group of superheroes plagued by all too human failings fall from grace while the concept of the super hero is dissected and inverted as strangely realistic characters are stalked by an unknown assassin.
A New York Times Best Seller!
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.
One of the most influential graphic novels of all time and a perennial bestseller, WATCHMEN has been studied on college campuses across the nation and is considered a gateway title, leading readers to other graphic novels such as V FOR VENDETTA, BATMAN: THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS and THE SANDMAN series.
