As someone who bought the original Watchmen graphic novel when it came out (and am still coveting the Absolute Edition!) I was intrigued/terrified about what the Movie version would be like. Whilst it hasn't set the world on fire or described as the 'best.movie.ever.', this book shows the immense amount of hard work put into the production. This thick tome is packed with set photos/sketches/paintings etc, and descriptive paragraphs are brief & succinct. In general, it is an excellent companion to the movie, and gives the fan an in-depth look into the things that would usually be on screen for only a few seconds or minutes.
