by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons


  1. The Watchmen, by Alan Moore, is held in very high standing in the comic book community as one of the works (along with Frank Miller's "The Dark Knight Returns" and Moore's own "V for Vendetta") that revolutionized the comic book industry and brought about the "dark and gritty" age of comics. It's essentially a mystery story with a super hero twist.

    I enjoyed the story and the artwork. However, I haven't decided how I feel about the ending even several months after reading the book. From the beginning up to the ending, Moore's writing is brilliant. If the writing up to the ending hadn't been so brilliant, I wouldn't be in such a quandry about the ending, but Moore weaves such an interesting story and, ending notwithstanding, it is a must read.
