5.0 out of 5 stars WARNING! German edition! 14 Feb 2011
By DemDude
Format:Hardcover
First of all let me say that the quality of the product is as you would expect it: Excellent. The story is time-tested and superb, the book itself is huge, heavy and extra high quality in every aspect. It's a great conversation piece to have on the coffee table.

However, be warned: This is the German edition of the book. I didn't realize when I first ordered it, so I want to use this opportunity to tell you. Call me an idiot, but I didn't even consider the possibility that this might be the German edition when I ordered it, so I want to use this opportunity to tell you, before you make the same mistake I did.

If you want the German edition though, go for it. It's worth every penny.

1.0 out of 5 stars GERMAN LANGUAGE 4 Jan 2012
By Dans
Format:Hardcover
Bought this as a Christmas gift. The recipient was very excited, took the shrink wrap off, took the book out of the case and then realised it was all in German. Now if you can read that great, the book is beautiful. If like most people shopping on Amazon.co.uk you aren't fluent in German then do not buy this.

Amazon have agreed to refund but it made for a disappointing Christmas for a friend

5.0 out of 5 stars Watchmen myself in decent shape! 3 May 2011
Format:Hardcover
This series is simply amazing. 2.5 pound book, which contains probably everything the fans want them to see. Comics in a larger format. A plethora of extras. One of the best comics in history has become even better with this edition. I highly recommend to all fans of "Watchmen"!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Review for New Readers, from a longstanding nerd. 27 Feb 2013
By Frank Lee MiDeer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
There's a reason most Comic book geeks RAVE about it. A couple things though: this is not light reading. You're supposed to study every single panel of every single page. And read every single page. They're all there for a very good reason. I've read it at least 20 times and I've literally seen something I hadn't noticed before... Every time.

The story is less important than the emotional contrast between the characters. The only "superhuman" is the Blue Guy from the movie. He's a changed character from an expired comics property that the publisher allowed Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons to interpret literally.

-What would happen if a guy lived in the continental US, and he was literally a god in the form of a glowing blue man. (Ex: He can take a Tank about into every single nut and bolt, just by thinking about it.) And, he was decidedly American. For starters, we beat the Russians into Space, and most of the NVA that aren't killed outright instead choose to surrender to Dr. Manhattan personally. Basically: everyone is very, Very, VERY scared of the USA... (That's a good lead in.)
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Suggestion: this is a 18-19 year old reading level. I read it in college. IE: don't give it to your 12 year old son. It has sexually explicit content, exceptional violence levels, and the Blue Guy is 100% naked for most of the book.
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
If you're an older fan, you have no excuses left. Read the book. It's like the flag that nerds wave to prove that Comic books are literary.
