The graphic novel Watchmen by by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons is probably the best example of this kind of work of all time. It IS as smart as everyone says it is. And you should buy it on Amazon and read it. Is it a comic book? Yes. Is it a really frigging GOOD comic book? Oh yeah.
It is actually structured like a novel, and you will probably have to read it more than once to get everything out of it. And it’s worth it. Every word.
Why am I kissing its ass so much? Because it is being made into a movie (after 20 odd years). Here’s the trailer below. Believe me. There are a LOT of people who will be watching this over an over like a drooling fanboy. Not me though. I am way too cool for that. I will probably post it and not even watch it. Nope. Not me.
So have YOU read it? What did you think? And what do you think of the trailer whether you have watched it or not?
