it was amazing
Read on May 20, 2010

YES I loved it. It was a bit grim but if that's okay with you, the neat twists and cool storytelling devices (comic-within-a-comic, juxtaposed text and image in poetic ways, etc.) make it MORE than worth it. Watchmen mixed old comic book styles with straight up text and a full parallax of story threads all converging to a magnificent ending that will satisfy any super hero loving nerd. It was very internally consistent (except for a lot of things about the Comedian...I think more of his character was told than shown) and will probably read it again just to take in all the wonderful details that lead up to the terrific ending.
