Extra Book - Watchmen

Book: Watchmen
Author: Alan Moore
Pages: 416

This is my 160th read for this year.

My husband and I have been watching Watchmen on TV over the last few weeks, and he encouraged me to check the "backstory" and read this graphic novel.

This graphic novel takes place from the 1930s all the way until the 1980s.  Vigilantes mixed with one real life superhero are helping to protect.  There has been a family tragedy and a scientific accident.  There are masked vigilantes trying to do good, but someone is picking them off one by one.  The world is on the verge of World War III.  Can one man stop the countries from around the world causing a nuclear accident.  

This graphic novel crosses a lot of time lines, and a lot of story lines weave in between the underlying theme of seeing the human side of super humans.  It is a good story, even though it got a little confusing at times.  IT is a very long graphic novel - I was surprised at its size.  And now that I have read this, the TV show will make a lot more sense (since that takes place after this novel)

Stars: 4
