Found 5th Dec 2008
"Watchmen" redefined what superhero comics could be, and re-introduced the medium to an adult audience with a gripping, labyrinthine script and ultra-detailed artwork.Rorschach, a half-psychotic vigilante, must convince his ex team-mates, now middle-aged and retired, that he has uncovered a plot to murder the remaining superheroes - along with millions of innocent civilians...Even reunited, will the remnants of the Watchmen be enough to avert a global apocalypse?With a powerful, chilling storyline, masterfully told by comics supremo Alan Moore and beautifully rendered artwork by Dave Gibbons, "Watchmen" - soon to be a smash-hit movie - remains a cornerstone of Western comics.

Aside from being the best graphic novel to date, this is a hard back with 436 pages. The film based very closely to this book is out in the summer and looks to be amazing. My first post, hope it goes well ; )

Well worth a read.

I just finished it for the forth time last week.

hmm, been made cold with no reason given. This was my first post as it's one of the rare things i would really recommend and a bargain to boot. Paperback is usually more than a tenner itself.

amazon.co.uk/Wat…060

Up for preorder at £12.49 delivered on Amazon with Free Supersaver Delivery.

Same book right down to the ISBN no.

Aah. Whenever i use amazon i get a month of dodgy viagra type emails and hadn't seen it. Best to re-edit the post for amazon? As long as the bargain gets passed along im happy.

Only 8-) if you have the original

Now this is more like it, as some may be able to tell from my Av, I'm a bit of fan.

Can't you just get the original still, for less? This is a lot to pay.

My avatar too, but a little more hidden : ) Personally i think its a good price, amazon seemingly better but i trust play more and will get it a day or so earlier too. It's a hardback hence the price, recoloured too, as the absolute edition im told. Which will be fifty quid plus. For those that like graphic novels, it's a must for any collection. And with christmas coming, a decent gift imo. I have had the paperback for over 18 years but ordered this one too.

Oh it's a hardback. Well that explains some of the price I guess, but I don't think it justifies it enough. I like graphic novels, but it's not a 'must' and I don't collect them because I have better things to do. So for others like me, who can appreciate certain things without resolving to spending large amounts of money on them to create a collection., I think will look for a cheaper paperback version. Hence the cold votes this has been suffering. I think your target audience is too narrow.

This is the special edition Hardcover Titan version - with oversized pages and extra content, and an RRP of £24.99 - only £12.49 @ Waterstones though - with Quidco too............

Great book, cold deal though............

I had the original read it loads, then my mate 'borrowed' it andit never came back! gggrrr

This hardback version is well deserved I think, after years of being Watchmen free.....;-)
