Linda C (libladynylindac) | 1033 comments This classic award winner is the originator of many of the concepts common in today's graphic novels. It is the story of a group of super-heroes who have been banned from practice as they have become synonymous with vigilantes. A couple are in politics and one continues underground, but most have retired their suits to ordinary jobs. When two of them meet violent deaths, the rest begin questioning, particularly Rorschach, the vigilante. The story is set in an alternate 1987. Philosophies about war and peace, right and wrong, religion, and space are all touched on. I understand where all of this is innovative for 1987, but I was just not that interested in the story. But glad I finally got around to reading it.
