DARK KNIGHT RETURNS and THE SANDMAN series.

From Our Editors
This stunning graphic novel chronicles the fall from grace of a group of super heroes plagued by all too human failings. The concept of the super hero is dissected and inverted as strangely realistic characters are stalked by an unknown assassin. Originally published as a 12-issue series in 1986 and 1987, WATCHMEN remains one of DC Comics' most popular graphic novels.
"A work of ruthless psychological realism, it's a landmark in the
graphic novel medium. It would be a masterpiece in
