A Hugo Award winning graphic novel created by writer Alan Moore, artist Dave Gibbons, and colorist John Higgins. The twelve issue series was originally published by DC Comics during 1986 and 1987, and subsequently reprinted in this collected form.
Watchmen 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.
Arguably one of the most influential graphic novels of all time and a perennial bestseller, Watchmen is considered a gateway title, leading readers to other graphic novels such as V For Vendetta, Batman: The Dark Knight Returns and The Sandman.
416 pages available in paperback and hardcover.
