Detalhes da Obra

Watchmen - Book 1 of 12 de Alan Moore (Writer)

  1. 210
    V for Vendetta de Alan Moore (FFortuna, monktv)
    monktv: These books have the epic storytelling and interesting meaning in common.
  2. 202
    Batman: O Cavaleiro das Trevas de Frank Miller (McMinty)
  3. 100
    The Absolute Sandman Volume One de Neil Gaiman (JapaG)
    JapaG: After the Watchmen, Sandman is probably the graphic novel that has most influenced the adult comic scene today. It has similarly deep storyline about humanity from the perspective of one outside of it. Also the magnificent art contributes to the great collection.
  4. 80
    From Hell de Alan Moore (sturlington)
  5. 80
    Grandes Clássicos DC 09: Alan Moore de Alan Moore (artturnerjr)
    artturnerjr: Includes two earlier Moore/Gibbons collaborations.
  6. 50
    Supremo: a História do Ano (Slip case box set) de Alan Moore (TomWaitsTables)
    TomWaitsTables: Like Watchmen, this is a superhero story. But it is the complete polar opposite of Watchmen; this is Alan Moore's love letter to the silver age superhero.
  7. 40
    Astro City, Vol.1: Vida na Cidade Grande de Kurt Busiek (FFortuna)
  8. 62
    Kingdom Come de Mark Waid (jpers36)
  9. 40
    Batwoman: Elegy de Greg Rucka (sweetiegherkin)
    sweetiegherkin: I enjoyed the back stories in both, seeing how regular people end up as costumed vigilantes.
  10. 40
    Supreme: The Return de Alan Moore (TomWaitsTables)
  11. 40
    Miracleman Book Three: Olympus de Alan Moore (artturnerjr)
    artturnerjr: Both deconstructionist superhero tales by Alan Moore. WATCHMEN is the more formally masterful work; MIRACLEMAN, the more emotionally devastating one.
  12. 40
    Authority, Vol. 1 de Warren Ellis (MyriadBooks)
  13. 31
    American Flagg!, Vol. 1 de Howard Chaykin (LKAYC)

I read this as a tween and I think it heavily influenced me. As a young person, people usually try to preserve your innocence as if it were the last drop of water in a desert, but this book pretty much shattered what was left of my 12 or 13 year old innocence (there was very little, I'd discovered the internet pretty early on in life) and I think I am better for it.

Ignoring "Watchmen" impact on me personally aside as much as possible, I generally just think it is an objectively great novel. The art illustrates things that just couldn't be described in words. This effect makes this "Comic" sophisticated, since it's streamlined and not so focused on the details. It gives the reader the ability to focus on the whole picture (somewhat literally), instead of being bogged down in how Rorschach perceives ever minute detail in an expression--although Rorschach isn't likely to do that anyway... Regardless, you see my point.

Well written, well illustrated, a must read for those that don't shy away from the grit and truth of humanity. ( )

Wheoever ranked this in the top 100 books of all time is right on. One of the best books, not to mention graphic novels, I've ever read. Very powerful. ( )

There. Was. So. Much. Killing. The characters were... messed up. The plot was messed up. Looking back, I wonder why I didn't hate it so much. I think it was because, messed up or not, they were still good characters. From a literary standpoint, I guess, 'cause none of the characters were really "good". Maybe that was what the book was going for. I dunno ( )

This was another book club selection that I would not have picked up on my own; mostly because I am not much of a graphic novel type. However, in this case, I was actually surprised that I liked it at all. The book is actually 12 comic books mashed together with some filler text that provided some back-story. The general concept was that what we would commonly refer to as super heroes actually became a fashion for awhile ... and they were seen as what they really were ... masked vigilantes. The premise opens up a very interesting debate on how government should work and what should happen when it fails to protect the governed. The American West (and to some extent, the South) has a significant history in vigilantism, so it was pretty easy to see this world as possible ...

And it was an extremely dark and unpleasant world. I didn't much care for the apparent fascination with blood in the frequent depictations of violence within the story, but I could accept them given the dark tenor of the plot. A few heroes even had intriguing character flaws, but the format didn't really allow us to explore them very deeply. There was a touch on predestination using Dr. Manhattan as the foil that was actually very well done; however, the scene on Mars was almost entirely superfluous IMHO and should have been dumped. Others may argue that is was a component of illustrated Dr. Manhattan's inhumanness (or at the very least, his isolation from humanity), but I thought that had already been accomplished when he left Earth.

Finally there was the story within a story provided by a character whose sole purpose was to read another comic book within THIS comic book and presented a storyline that was apparently supposed to shadow (or foreshadow) how this story would end ... and I must say that the two stories were tenuously linked at best and the ended of the main plot was singularly unsatisfying while the ending of the black freighter story was relatively predictable. All in all it didn't add as much to the story as it should have. ( )

[spraypainted on wall] "Who watches the Watchmen?"
"Looked at the sky through smoke heavy with human fat and God was not there. The cold suffocating dark goes on forever and we are alone. Live our lives lacking anything better to do. Devise reason later. Born from oblivion; bear children hell-bound as ourselves; go into oblivion. There is nothing else. Existence is random. Has no pattern save what we imagine after staring at it for too long. No meaning save what we choose to impose. This rudderless world is not shaped by vague metaphysical forces. It is not God who kills the children. Not fate that butchers them or destiny that feeds them to the dogs. It's us. Only us." (Ch. VI, pg26)
"All this, it could be gone: people, cars, T.V. shows, magazines...even the word 'gone' would be gone." (Ch. V, pg12)
"Why do we argue? Life's so fragile, a successful virus clinging to a speck of mud, suspended in endless nothing." (Ch. VI, pg28)
"We're all puppets, Laurie. I'm just a puppet that can see the strings." (Ch. IX, pg5)

Some consider Absolute Watchmen to be a notably different work from Watchmen. There is currently a discussion in Combiners! discussing whether or not this separation is needed. Please join the discussion. Please do not combine the two works until this is resolved.
Before separating check ISBN because there are bad titles

Please be careful in separating editions titled Watchmen #1, because many are not for the first single issue of the miniseries, but for this collected volume.
