In an alternate world where the mere presence of American superheroeschanged history, the US won the Vietnam War, Nixon is still president, and thecold war is in full effect. Watchmen begins as a murder-mystery, butsoon unfolds into a planet-altering conspiracy.

As the resolution comes to ahead, the unlikely group of reunited heroes--Rorschach, Nite Owl, Silk Spectre,Dr. Manhattan and Ozymandias - have to test the limits of theirconvictions and ask themselves where the true line is between good and evil.

In the mid-eighties, Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons created Watchmen,changing the course of comics' history and essentially remaking how popularculture perceived the genre.

Popularly cited as the point where comics came ofage, Watchmen's sophisticated take on superheroes has been universallyacclaimed for its psychological depth and realism. Watchmen is collected here with a new cover, sketches, extra bonusmaterial, and a new introduction by series artist Dave Gibbons.
