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 with a new cover, sketches, extra bonus material and a new introduction by series artist Dave Gibbons.… (mais)

A comic that deals with superheroes in an untraditional way. I knew there was an HBO show coming out of this. After wanting to read it for a couple of years I found myself buying this collection just in time before the show would start.

The story is an alternate history that follows a couple of vigilantes in New York in 1985. The third world war is about to start and things aren’t going as smoothly. Vigilantes are forbidden leading to former superheroes to work for the government or in retirement. the story starts when one “hero” is murdered. Slowly the group gets back together to try to solve who’s behind the murders.

This comic is phenomenal! It’s so well thought out of and everything is just right. The whole collection feels like a whole story without any unnecessary plotlines. The worldbuilding is really well done. It’s set in an alternate history so it makes it easy to understand how people are living. They only had minor differences that make it not to complicated but yet fresh. The characters were amazing. They all had an interesting backstory and all were super flawed. I’m a sucker for a good anti-hero. The way the story is told is interesting because it keeps you on your toes there are some twists and turns that really move the story forward. After being so oversaturated with all kinds of superhero’s and vigilantes in media these days I thought this was a very different take that really felts different instead of only saying it is. If I have to point out one minor thing, I wasn’t totally feeling it would have to be the story inside the story. It’s about this comic a kid is reading about someone being stranded on an island. I just wasn’t getting the bigger picture and sometimes it felt it was distracting from the bigger story. On a positive note I enjoyed the issue of Dr Manhattan the most. The way his story is told is heart breaking and really emotional. The artwork only enhances that.

Please read this. It’s a story not for everyone but I’m sure it’s worth your time spending on it.

As I don't read in this genre I'm probably not qualified to review but I will say it stank of testosterone: men thinking they can rule/change/police the world with women as props. So bleak, violent and unrelentingly pretentious in its allusions to myths and mythology. Not at all likemthe much better than series. There I said it. ( )

What is there to say about Watchmen that hasn't been said already? This is one of the most monumental, "must read" comics ever written.

Masterpiece.

Madmen and fantasists, heroes and villains, the fine line between greatness and obscurity - what makes a superhero?? This is a great foundation into the universe of The Watchmen; dark and sinister, full of conflict, shame and doubt. These heroes are something other than what you're used to...
