Author(s): Alan Moore; Dave Gibbons
Soon to be an 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. This edition features a never-before published lenticular cover of Rorschach's shifting mask.
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 writer of V For Vendetta and Batman: The Killing Joke--and industry legend Dave Gibbons, features a lenticular cover and the restored coloring seen in the Absolute edition.
