Description

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.show more

Our customer reviews

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!show more
