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.

The most amazing hero story ever written. It’s brilliance is unmatched, and in a way, it’s genius is unfair to those of us who are left wondering what is next after reading it.
Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons created something truly special here. What if time could heal all wounds and the impossible happens and they make up and re-collaborate to give this world a whole new chapter of life...... Now that would be an ending nobody would of been able to predict ;)
This book is the single epitome of all Graphic Novel art. It really doesn't do it justice to read it on your phone. Alan Moore made this work of art with an extremely compelling storyline and world, which will keep you thinking. Some parts may be complex, but getting through them results in one of the most satisfactory reads you will ever have. A must read
