Watchmen by Alan Moore & Dave Gibbons
Reviewed by Jason Erik Lundberg
Possibly the best graphic novel ever written. An incredible deconstruction of the superhero genre, and a smart and fascinating murder mystery. Moore accomplishes things impossible in any other form, and does so with intelligence and phenomenal writing. Gibbons’ artwork is the perfect complement, and is wonderfully crowded with incredible detail. Powerful and full of symbolism, and a must-read for any mature comics fan.
