Tales Of The Black Freighter is actually, in the Watchmen graphic novel, a comic book that we see being read reasonably regularly. It concerns itself with pirates, and the story is that of a man who survives an attack from the Black Freighter of the title, only to then have to try and get back home and warn people at home it’s coming. His journey, and this is some understatement, isn’t an easy one, and for good reason this was the story deemed to be the most tricky part of the Watchmen graphic novel to realise on screen.
It turns out that animation has proven to be a wise way to go, though. Tales of the Black Freighter works well as a cartoon, and it’s able to contain much of the material from the graphic novel as a result. Its effect is a little dampened when taken in isolation, but it’s still a welcome and well-realised version of the story, and a faithful one too. Well worth picking up. --Jon Foster

My fault but it is not what I expected! It is cartoons whereas I thought it would be the first hit before the 'proper' Watchmen came out. Read morePublished 5 months ago by eduardo
Good compliment to the watchmen film, and under the hood adds excellent depth to the minutemen past. Well worth it considering the low price tag.Published 6 months ago by pip

I really do think that "Tales of the Black Freighter" is boring. But "Under the Hood" is pure gold. Nice to know more about "the Minutemen".Published on 12 May 2010 by Mirko Mihaljevic
