really liked it
bookshelves: graphic-novels
Read in October, 2008

The previews got me intrigued, so RDT lent me his copy. I liked it up to a certain point. Not enough characters were compelling, I didn't particularly enjoy the pirate monologue... Rorschach, Nite Owl and to an extent Dr. Manhattan kept things interesting, as well as the mystery of who murdered the Comedian. The female characters had very weak roles which was unfortunate. Ultimately the whole novel was very dark and disturbing; I had a hard time looking at some of the drawings they were so graphic. So yeah, it's all right, just not my cup of tea.
