    Rating: 9Reviewed By: J SHeezy11/13/2017
    Summary ReviewThe Watchmen by Alan Moore is an excellent read. In an alternative Earth where the superman "Dr. Manhattan" exist, doomsday inches ever closer as the surviving masked heroes try to find there place in the world.
    Detailed ReviewAs a member of staff at Guild of Blades, I really attempt to 'get a taste' of the various things we offer for purchase at the store. One of the things I was less familiar with when I arrived were comic books. My first months were spent probing my co-workers for all things comic related: characters, setting, story-lines. One of the things I was always getting recommended was the "Watchmen" by Alan Moore. I had heard allot of good things coming from the story; however, as noted, I was rather new to comic books, so when I did finally pick it up, I went in nearly blind. Despite this freshness to the entire comic book spectrum of culture, I had not only enjoyed the Watchmen, but I respected it, especially after some insight from one of my co-workers.

    The watchmen was an excellent graphic novel. The characters were fascinating, the art a perfect shade of grunge, and the story... Woof, that was the best part of it. From stop to finish, I could not put down the story, and that's exactly how I like it.

    It is not by conventional means a normal super-hero story. Our 'heroes' are rapist, sadist, completely devoid of there humanity, and flawed. The world is equally so, taking itself down a dark down-trodden path that faced completed assured annihilation. This human-ness to the characters, contrasted with the way that the shading and boxed classic comic strip style juxtaposed our reality with the idealism of a comic book, making me really think on the themes of humanity, justice, and the noble sacrifice that this graphic novel challenged me with. This is not a novel that will make you happy- no, it will beat you down, and have you thinking twice about others, and yourself. It is a dirty book, in theme and character, but its an important book.

    I by no-means regret reading the book, I appreciate it now and the medium of which it was produced now more then ever, and I can see why it is considered one of the greatest literary works of all time.

    If you haven't read it and your a comic book fan, or even if you aren't, read it. It's fantastic, wonderful, and deserving of all its praise.
