Watchmen is a great comic book. It should in fact be called a regular book because this is unlike any other comic book you have read. It has all of the element any book should have and then some. I highly suggest reading this comic book, but i do not recommend it for the faint of heart. There are many... controversial subjects that are shown throughout the book.
The book is generally about a world in which superheroes are real. They do not have actual super powers, but they still fight crime and live for justice. Moat of them, anyway. There are, however, two heroes that really are super: Dr. Manhattan, and Ozymandias. They both replace the old heroes with their new style of powers, like changing form, teleportation, or breaking through sheer metal.
In conclusion, GET THE BOOK. It is a lot different from all of the comic books out there today, and sheds light on some controversal historical events that changed the world if it happened a different way.

Ms. Shah said this book counts for one half.
