The Watchmen

ISBN: 978-0-930289-23-1

Thoughts: I can see why The Watchmen was so groundbreaking when it was released - especially since it came out prior to DC's Vertigo imprint, which is really where it needs to go -  but I am not sure it has aged well.  As I am used to comics from today, the garish coloring immediately threw me out of the story.  Also, I quickly got frustrated with the characters who were unable to see what was really going on. And the ending was on par with It.  

Rating: 2 stars
