    Awesome Story - Caution, Picture isn't correct though

    Watchmen is simply one of the best stories ever told in comics.<BR/><BR/>Please be cautious ordering though, as the image is not correct. The slipcase does NOT have the bloodied smiley on it, it has the yellow doomsday clock on it (with the hands in the position of the blood smear on the smiley). I believe the smiley was only the first edition of the book and this is the 4th printing. I was actually someone disappointed with the cover, since I was expecting the other one, but the rest of the book is so well made (the paper stock is amazingly heavy), I forgive the change.

    Who Watches The Watchmen?

    Watchmen was, and still is, an event graphic novel. There is an intense amount of detail that enriches the story, maticulous descriptive powers, an enormous sense of impact that keeps you gripping the book until you are done, and every character has a back story.

    This ground-breaking masterpiece weaves back and forth in time that leads to tell a story that is much bigger than just another super hero epic, creating a breath of fresh air in the graphic novel world. Watchmen delves deeper under the surface and shows you what goes on in the heroes' head and their thought processes. It becomes more of a psychological thriller in some points.

    The concept of creating a fictional storyline based on actual events is sort of dated, but Alan Moore definitely made it work and created a feel that didn't go stagnant after a few pages. Just to prove that Watchmen has made its mark where it belongs, the blood-splattered smiley face pin is one of the most iconic images in the grapic novel world. Not to mention that it is listed as Time Magazines' 100 Most Greatest English-Language Novels of the 20th Century.

    On top of the in-depth thriller, Zach Snyder directed his interpretation of the the masterpiece and created an event film to match it.

    I'm not just writing a kiss-ass review because of the film and that it got so much hype, I'm writing a great review for a great piece of literature that will be read time and time again. Its a great read and it also stimulates conversation, believe it or not.

    Buy it. Read it. Enjoy it.
    And make sure you clear off a spot in your permanent collection.

    WATCHMEN

    WATHCMEN THE GRAPHIC NOVEL thats what every body is talking about. THE ORIGINALITY and CHARACTERS are so amazing. I personly love RORSCHACH cause of the moving mask and a great story he has behind him. WATCHMEN also has characters like, NIGHT OWL 2, SILK SPECTRE 2, OZYMANDIAS, DR.MANHATTAN, and THE COMEIDAIN. its an amazing book.

    Someone needs to watch over the Watchmen

    This book is absolutley boring, no action, twisted story line, and below average artwork. There are too many characters to keep track of and some are repeat characters. No sense of a timeline. Truly not worth the $60 pricetag. Hope the movie does better. Cannot figure where all the hype came from.
