In an alternate world where the mere presence of American superheroes
changed history, the US won the Vietnam War, Nixon is still president, and the
cold war is in full effect. Watchmen begins as a murder-mystery, but
soon unfolds into a planet-altering conspiracy. As the resolution comes to a
head, the unlikely group of reunited heroes - Rorschach, Nite Owl, Silk
Spectre, Dr. Manhattan and Ozymandias - have to test the limits of their
convictions and ask themselves where the true line is between good and evil.
In the mid-eighties, Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons created Watchmen,
changing the course of comics' history and essentially remaking how popular
culture perceived the genre. Popularly cited as the point where comics came of
age, Watchmen's sophisticated take on superheroes has been universally
acclaimed for its psychological depth and realism.Watchmen is collected here in a deluxe hardcover, with sketches,
extra bonus material, and a new Introduction by series artist Dave
