Watchmen: The Deluxe Edition HC Hardback
by Alan Moore
In an alternate world where the mere presence of American superheroeschanged history, the US won the Vietnam War, Nixon is still president, and thecold war is in full effect. Watchmen begins as a murder-mystery, butsoon unfolds into a planet-altering conspiracy.
As the resolution comes to ahead, the unlikely group of reunited heroes - Rorschach, Nite Owl, SilkSpectre, Dr. Manhattan and Ozymandias - have to test the limits of theirconvictions 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 popularculture perceived the genre.
Popularly cited as the point where comics came ofage, Watchmen's sophisticated take on superheroes has been universallyacclaimed for its psychological depth and realism.Watchmen is collected here in a deluxe hardcover, with sketches,extra bonus material, and a new Introduction by series artist DaveGibbons.

Review by GrlIntrrptdRdng
Watchmen has a great story. Took awhile to catch on who is who and when they were active, but once I got that down it was easy to understand what was going on. I didn't care for the pirate comic that would pop up, I thought at first it was one of the character's background story, so that threw me off. I liked all the character's depth, especially Laurie's.
