Watchmen is a famous comic turned graphic novel that has recently come to my attention by the new movie being produced that is based on it. Notably, it is the only graphic novel to be included in the Times top 100 novels since 1923, and it is a top rated one to boot. Also, it is the only comic or graphic novel to win a Hugo award. Seeing this, I decided that I must read this novel, so I purchased myself a copy of Watchmen: Absolute Edition, because it's hardcover, having larger page size and better colouration than the original. Unfortunately, there seems to be a large backlog on orders, so my copy is not due until September. In the mean time, I thought it worthy of our discussion.
