I had read the Comedian/Rorschach book before this one and found it a bit disappointing, particularly the Rorschach part. However this is much better. The Minutemen story is well written and beautifully illustrated in a convincing period style. It actually adds something to the Watchmen story and is a solid 5 stars for me. Silk Spectre is good and also beautifully illustrated in a different and appropriate style but the story line wasn't as gripping. So overall a four star review but still strongly recommended.
