Product description

Written by Alan Moore; Art by Dave Gibbons 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 super-heroes 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.

He is also the mastermind behind the America's Best Comics line, through which he has created (along with many talented illustrators) THE LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN, PROMETHEA, TOM STRONG, TOMORROW STORIES and TOP TEN. As one of the medium's most important innovators since the early 1980s, Moore has influenced an entire generation of comics creators, and his work continues to inspire an ever-growing audience.

Customer reviews

By Adam 16 Aug 2013 5

For me this is maybe the best graphic novel ever. Drawings are excellent and Alan Moore in his best!

Even if you are not a fan of comic books this is really great literature. Very real, very cruel, very fun story.

I will never get bored to open this one again and read it from start till end!

Warm recommendation to everyone!
