Not the first graphic novel by any means, but one of the best that the genre has produced. Watchmen operates from the proposition that even superheroes, no matter how powerful they may be, still suffer all the frailties and limitations of human nature. While some have suggested that Watchmen is a deconstruction of the superhero concept, I prefer to think that it simply adds a welcome dimension of realism.
Whether you've seen the movie, or you are just curious about graphic novels, this book is essential reading.

This is an amazing work of literature that shows the power of combining the visual with the written to make something beyond either form.

This was my first graphic novel, and while I’m not really into the genre, I think it is a very good example of the medium. If nothing else, Watchmen gets points for presenting some intelligent philosophical arguments as well as for quoting Blake. Kinda makes me want to read V for Vendetta now. We’ll see.

If you don't already know, the other reviews will fill you in on the Watchmen's story and it's significance to the comic medium. I'm here to tell you about this edition of the book, which is basically an oversized version of the long out of print Graphitti Designs hardcover version complete with all of that edition's exclusive extras (which is fantastic since that out of print volume goes for major bucks on Ebay when it does rarely surface). Until now, that Graphitti Designs edition was the one to own...This tops it due to it's oversized pages and superior quality printing.
Want to see how this story was originally about about Captain Atom, Blue Beetle, and the Question (along with other Charlton characters) and how it changed to what it is? There is a very indepth look at the original proposal included here.
Want to see early Gibbon's art? it's here. How about rarely seen teaser strips published long before the first issue? Again included. Alan Moore's script samples? You got it.
Bottom line, I can't think of anything that could possibly be done or included that would make a superior edition to this.

This has to be my all time favorite graphic novel, this was in fact the first graphic novel that I have ever read and I must say it has kept me reading them for many many years. The drawings, the story-line, and the characters are all amazing, The best character in this book is by far Rorschach (ror shack) with his dark personality and crooked view on life. If you are thinking of getting into graphic novels or want to see the movie, this is a must buy.
