Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must have for Watchmen fans If you've arrived at the absolute edition it means you've already read the material and love it. This is a beautiful edition to own.

Plus it's nice to show off to other fans who don't own it and bathe in their envy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Absolute Must Read! The greatest writer in the world of graphic literature, at the top of his game. Watch a whole genre change before your eyes as you read this pioneering piece of work. Illustrations effectively capture the mood of this grim unsettling tale. If you think that super heroes are only for children, read Watchmen and think again.
