Cult Comic Essentials: Watchmen

Watchmen by Alan More and Dave Gibbons redefined what superhero comics could be and re-introduced the medium to an adult audience with a gripping, labyrinthine script and ultra-detailed artwork.

Set in the 1980s, the novel follows a motley crew of costumed superheroes in an alternate universe where the United States is nearing nuclear war with the Soviet Union. Rorschach, a half-psychotic vigilante must convince his ex team-mates, now middle-aged and retired, that he has uncovered a plot to murder the remaining superheroes – along with millions of innocent civilians…Even reunited, will the remnants of the ‘Watchmen’ be enough to avert a global apocalypse?

Moore created a complex murder mystery with intense, unforgettable characters that explored the themes of absolute power, love and the medium of comic books. It’s the only graphic work to also be included in the Time Magazine’s 100 Best Novels. It’s simply one of the most influential graphic novels of all time.
