This is one of the masterpieces of this format of storytelling. The idea, the characters, the ending will send chills down the spine. Requires multiple reads to assimilate the complete story since the illustrations hide a few masterstrokes of it's own which won't be evident first time through.
I don't think I need to say about Watchmen and how good it is. The book is thick and large, I mean really thick! Will be reading this for a while. Between every chapter there are excerpts from the back story, a novel mentioned in the comic. It also has sketches and wip pieces of the art. Overall, I loved this edition. I just wrapped the cover in a plastic sheet to protect as it is a paperback. The print quality is also good here.
'Dog carcass in alley this morning's is sufficient enough to give a chill to your spine. If you want to delve into the adult comics I think this is a good start. But the binding is not very good and paper are although plastic paper but not up to the mark
When I ordered Watchmen.. I thought I am going to read a most beloved Comic.. Before that I have to admit.. It's a most beloved storybook.. It's just out as a comic.. I was intrigued by several arcs,of the characters..especially Rorschach made me empathize with him, with the backstory.. After that there is mind blowing writing... It does not have a great super villain from the outside world..It touches on the Villain inside the same universe, created by the society we live in.. Climax was a bit surprising though.. Don't miss it.. Its a mature comic for the Matured ones..
The artwork by Dave Gibbons was breathtaking. Alan Moore proved himself to be one of the most influential writer in the genre of graphic novels.It is one of the three best comics I have read (the list is Maus,The Dark Knight Returns and Watchmen). Amazon delivered the product before the date given. I was quite impressed. If there was one word to describe the book - FABULANTASTIC.
This is new edition of international edition. Which means it also contains all the bonus materials In the end as in absolute edition and of course with new improved colours. If you want to be introduced to philosophy via fiction this is a good book to start. Thought provoking questions are imparted in readers mind about nihilism and absurdism, mainly. This book is not for kids, it contains themes which is not suitable for kids. At least 15+.
Is there anything to be said about watchmen that hasn't been said before. It's the pinnacle of graphic novel writing. The psychological realism and the social, political ideologies discussed in this book is what makes one of the best works of literature in the previous century.
As for the quality, the paper and cover is very good and received in time without any delays. As always Amazon delivers what it shows.
Where Do I start?This is a tour de force,a task capable only by the Great Alan Moore.The Characters are deliciously twisted and flawed and their choices and words left me thinking for hours at an end.Amazon delivered it amazingly fast.It was supposed to come on Friday but came on Tuesday,finely packed and I could not be happier.I had been wanting to own this book for a long time and now that I have it I can't express my happiness.Don't waste time reading my review.Buy it,Read it,Love it,Keep it.This one is a Must-Buy for sure.
Sheer joy to complete the saga of fear, resilience and morality, even if misplaced at times. Alan Moore has beautifully fleshed the characters in this book so much so that the reader is transported to the age of Cold War constantly fearing the imminent threat of nuclear war looming over their heads. Some of the best dialogues written in the graphic literature world are contained in this book. And once you finish it, you realise that not for nothing is this book a part of the Holy Trinity of Graphic Novels.
