"Originally published by DC Comics Inc. in twelve issues in magazine form, 1986-1987"--T.p. verso.
Moore and Gibbons makes full use of the graphic novel medium—it’s not just a story enhanced by pictures, rather the visual aspects move the plot in ways that words cannot. The 2009 movie, though not perfectly loyal to the plot, is certainly worth watching—especially for the shots that are exact replicas of the comic’s panels.
The book can be a bit dense, especially for those expecting the typical superhero comic read, but it is worth taking your time and noticing the details on every page. Watchmen is the perfect example of how graphic novels can be more than just comic books.
