Even for someone with a causal interest in Watchmen this book is full of entertaining and thought provoking essays all of which convince you to take another look or look from another angle!

5.0 out of 5 stars What isn't to like about a book on Alan Moore's Watchmen? 3 Jan 2012
By K. Thurman - Published on
I know that a lot has, and can be said, about Alan Moore's fantastic Watchmen book. While this is not a defenitive take on the book, this is far superior. This is a collection of essays that help to not just flesh out what may have been missed on initial readings of Moore's work, but several of the more subtle themes in Watchmen are explore fresh and in often fun ways. For any Alan Moore or Watchmen fan!

Although I've read Watchmen many, many times - many things, themes, and details are brought forward by each essay. Enjoyably readable.

Nicely written and generally compelling arguments on Watchmen. Does a good job of contextualizing in the larger history of comics.

I enjoyed the essays on Watchmen. They had some views that I was not aware of and I started to see Watchmen with a different view. I appreciated the fact that, even after all these years you can look at the graphic novel and still learn something. Thank you for an enjoyable read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Totally worth borrowing on Amazon Prime. 23 May 2012
By HDTurner - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
My boyfriend is really into comics; until I met him, I never understood the significance they played in american culture.
Loving my boyfriend, I asked him what he enjoyed about comics. He told me the dynamic stories accompanied by art made comics a unique experiences that was different from any other type of media. I then asked him who some of his favorite comic celebrities were, he replied "Alan Moore, Grant Morrison, Warren Ellis".

I opened up my Kindle later that evening and found Watchmen... WOW. I finally understood what he meant. Searching for more material to read, I noticed I could borrow this for free on Amazon Prime. So Friday I borrowed this book and finished it Sunday. I now feel I can have a conversation with my boyfriend about something he is passionate about. Plus, I know what I am getting him for his birthday.

Thanks Amazon, thanks Sequart.
