A hit HBO original series, Watchmen, the groundbreaking series from award-winning author Alan Moore, presents a world where the mere presence of American superheroes changed history–the U.S. won the Vietnam War, Nixon is still president, and the Cold War is in full effect.
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 author of V For Vendetta and Batman: The Killing Joke, features art from industry legend Dave Gibbons, with high-quality, recolored pages found in Watchmen: Absolute Edition.
“Watchmen” is the most celebrated graphic novel in comic book history. The world is in disarray and an unlikely assemblage of superheroes have to save it, by any means necessary.
Alan Moore’s writing shines in the 2019 edition while Dave Gibbons illustrates high-quality, recolored pages from “Watchmen: Absolute Edition.”
This is an event you do not want to miss. Share this graphic novel to fans of 80s comic books and to comic collectors. It is definitely worth its price and will leave you wanting for more Watchmen! And Rorschach!
The Kindle and Comixology formats are highly recommended.

One customer review said: “I bought this graphic novel back in 2016 when I started enjoying comic books but, for some reason, I didn’t pick it up until recently. I have to say, I was mistaken to let it sit there for so many years. I will begin with a few recommendations and follow that up with my thoughts.
First of all, I recommend everyone who reads this to do so before they watch the movie or the new HBO show. I haven’t watched either but from past experiences, they tend to do no justice to the original content.
Second, I recommend everyone to read about the history and what was happening in the 1950-1980s. This book contains a lot of historical information, and if you read it without any knowledge of what was going on in this period, you might not enjoy it as much.
Third, take your time watching the Illustration. This was a different comic book era. Nowadays, they focus more on the picture than actual storytelling. I have read comics where a whole issue has less than 20 sentences. Watchmen was created in a more storytelling era and it is a heavy read sometimes. As an example, my girlfriend has been reading it at about the same pace as I was (I finished it last night), and sometimes when I ask for her reaction or her opinion of why the illustrator (Dave Gibbons) added [insert something I noticed here], she would say: “Oh, I didn’t notice that”. So read, but pay attention to the illustrations. this book has its fair share of foreshadowing and you are like me, you will feel ecstatic when you find them and later find out you were right.”
The reviews were overall very positive with 148 negative reviews. A problem cited by a negative review was the format on Kindle: “Graphic novels are one of the varieties of books that my co-ed book club likes. I was initially happy to find this for the Kindle, but it’s tiny to read. I would recommend at least a big iPad or on a big screen monitor.”
Overall, this graphic novel was great.
