A NEW YORK TIMES Bestseller! Considered the greatest graphic novel in the history of the medium, the Hugo Award-winning story chronicles the fall from grace of a group of superheroes plagued by all-too-human failings. Along the way, the concept of the superhero is dissected as an unknown assassin stalks the erstwhile heroes. This edition of WATCHMEN, the groundbreaking series from Alan Moore, the award-winning writer of V FOR VENDETTA and BATMAN: THE KILLING JOKE, and Dave Gibbons, the artist of GREEN LANTERN, features the high-quality, recolored pages found in WATCHMEN: THE ABSOLUTE EDITION with sketches, never-before-seen extra bonus materials and a new introduction by Dave Gibbons.

Customer Reviews


Am I seriously the first to write a review on freaking WATCHMEN? Well, first of all, if you've never read it, buy it. Now! It's only the Bible of graphic novels. It deserves that praise all the way. Not only is it the greatest graphic novel ever created, it's honestly one of the best BOOKS you'll get around to reading. A masterpiece in every way. I'm quite happy to finally have this on my iPad.

Great character analysis

Thrilling, idealistic, masked men are in an alternate 1985 America, fruits of prior masked heroes. In depth examination of all the characters leads through a twisting story that will capture you in its roots. Rorschach is arguably the best graphic novel character I have ever read about. His perverse ideals about justice and his anti-hero setting really set a great mood for the story. Watching twice, even three times will really catch all of its glory. Happy reading!

God exists and he's American

This was the first graphic novel I've read and I'm glad I did. Very entertaining and thought provoking. It feature a comic within a comic, very Shakespearean. The characters were multidimensional, so the story never feels predictable. I don't want to ruin it, so I'll stop typing and let you discover the uniqueness of this comic. And if you've watch the movie already, the comic offers more depth to the story and characters like every novel turned into a film does. Put simply, if you like the movie you'll love this graphic novel.
