"Geen van jullie begrijpt het. Ik ben niet bij jullie opgesloten, maar jullie bij mij." Ben jij onschuldig genoeg om in één kamer met Rorschach te zijn?

Walter Kovacs had al zeer jonge leeftijd door dat hij beschikte over een aangeboren gevoel voor goed en kwaad, zelfs al had verder niemand anders dat door. Gemotiveerd door zijn onwrikbare moraal en zijn diepliggende

FranzisBuchstabensalat
So enttäuschend! Wie kann der Verlag für so „etwas“ das Go für den Druck geben?!
Dieser Band liest sich wie eine 08/15-Geschichte für einen beliebigen Superhelden. Aber hier steckt der beliebteste Watchman der Graphic Novel hinter!

Keinerlei Tiefgang – weder bei der allgemeinen Story, Figuren noch bei dem zeitlichen Ausschnitt, der aus Rotschachs Leben beleuchtet wird.

Die wichtigsten Fragen werden nicht beantwortet, nein, nicht mal gestellt:
Wer ist/ war der Mensch Walter Kovacs? Was ist ihm

Willem’s book log.
September 2nd, 2015.:

Read “Before Watchmen: Rorschach” this morning. Am afraid this is just a cheap way to cash in on rediscovering of classic now that the movie has hit theaters.

Azzarello delivers with decent noir-ish story. But character doesn’t feel like Rorschach at all. His characteristic staccato voice: gone. Suddenly possesses superpowers when punching and kicking people in the face.
Thought that “Watchmen” proved these vigilantes were anything bùt superheroes. Must be

Esta es una historia realmente corta, muy fácil de leer y de entender. Súper recomendado para los amantes de Watchmen y para quien quiera saber un poco más de la forma de actuar de Rorschach.
Sinn
Mit "Rorschach" knüpft die Serie "Before Watchmen" leider nicht an alten Erfolgen an. Jedenfalls nicht an jenen des Original Watchmen-Comics aus dem Jahr 1986. Zwar ist die Figur Rorschach (zumindest für mich) eine der interessantesten Problemkinder des Genres - aber alles in Allem ist diese Graphic-Novel nicht mehr und nicht weniger als eine Art "weiteres Abenteuer" derselben.

Wer sich große Zusammenhänge gewünscht hat, Hintergründe oder eine tolle "Comming-of-Madness"-Geschichte, der wird von

Rorshach is met stip mijn favoriete personage uit Watchmen, misschien wel mijn lieveling uit het hele comic-landschap. Al is 'lieveling' niet iets wat met Walter geassocieerd kan worden. En deze verzameling van de 4 issues rond dit karakter stelt niet teleur. Breng het iets nieuws aan de tafel: nee. En dat levert deze verhaallijn vaak slechte recensies op. Maar het is een (on)aangenaam weerzien met de gemaskerde man en hij wordt zeer goed getypeerd en het verhaal op zich is verre van slecht. Het ...more

Zeichnerisch voll auf der Höhe fügt der Band der Figur Rorschach nicht aber auch nur den geringsten neuen Aspekt hinzu. Kein Hintergrund, kein Kontext - da haben wir Rorschach bei den WATCHMEN schon besser kennengelernt. Und "deus ex machina"-Lösungen hasse ich. Ausweglose Situationen sind nunmal ausweglos.

Alright and a quick read, but so inconsequential that it's hard not to forget all of it once you put it away. Nothing special. Mhf.
