Watchmen review

by Tory B on Jan 3, 2013

I have read this before but I wanted my own copy. This is easily the best graphic novel ever written, I just wish there was a sequel. The movie is as good or better

sure, I'll watch your Watchmen

by BugEyeMidnight on Aug 21, 2009

I?m sort of a low to mid-level geek. I love science fiction but I?ve never played an RPG or been to a comic book convention. I grew up reading a comic series and it was my one and only for a while, but I?ve always been interested in this genre and I?ve been delving into it more lately. I have to say all that because to some people this is a holy book, so if you?re not madly in love with it you need to tread softly and explain yourself. I like ?Watchmen.? It?s a very good book. I may have even loved it while I was reading it, but I have only read it once; it hasn?t made it onto my ?again and again? list. I keep trying to describe it and I come up with words like ?heavy,? ?meaty,? and ?dark.? They call it a graphic novel for a reason: it?s a grown-up person?s book presented with pictures. The themes are dark. The heroes are mostly human, with all of the vices, short-comings, and problems that implies. It isn?t an uplifting or particularly moving tale, but it?s not exactly depressing either. I don?t quite know what to say about it. It?s not clear what Moore wanted me to take away after reading his work, which is part of why it?s compelling, I guess. The plot wraps up neatly but you?re left puzzling over what to do about it. It?s a good sort of thing if you like that sort of thing - which I do, I just don?t love it. Maybe it?s because I didn?t fall in love with any of the characters. It didn't change my life, but it was a nice way to spend some time.

Great Book

by angelskitty on Mar 5, 2009

I never thought I'd be into graphic novels because I never read any comic books, boy was I wrong. I bought it for my husband for his birthday and he loved it. He couldn't stop reading it. I decided to see what he liked so much and once I picked it up, I couldn't put it down.

Better than I expected

by mike10 on Sep 11, 2008

To be honest, I was alittle turned off The Watchmen by all of the hype given this graphic novel, so finally with the new movie possibly coming out in 2009 I figured I should finally read the entire story. I have to say I wasn't dissappointed. Even thou the story has alot of flash backs it was easy to follow. I would have liked alittle more backround on some of the characters, the person we know the most about is the one with the greatest powers, Dr. Manhatton. For the approximately $10.00 I spent to purchase this book it was well worth it.

AMAZING!

by XShadowPheonx on May 22, 2007

The best graphic novel of all time, if not one of the greatest novels... what other comics do you see making their way on the list of time's 100 greatest novels? Whether you love comics or have never read one before this one will be an experience. It shows what the world might be like if there really were superheores without romanticizing the concept.
