About the Author

Alan Moore is perhaps the most acclaimed writer in the graphic story medium, having garnered countless awards for works such as WATCHMEN, V FOR VENDETTA, SWAMP THING and Miracleman. He is also the mastermind behind the America''s Best Comics line, through which he has created (along with many talented illustrators) THE LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN, PROMETHEA, TOM STRONG, TOMORROW STORIES and TOP TEN. As one of the medium''s most important innovators since the early 1980s, Moore has influenced an entire generation of comics creators, and his work continues to inspire an ever-growing audience.

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.

Editorial Reviews

"A work of ruthless psychological realism, it's a landmark in the graphic novel medium. It would be a masterpiece in any."
