watchmenTitle: Watchmen
Author: Alan Moore
Finished: May 23, 2009
Pages: 408
Published: 1986

After a long wait at the library, I was finally able to read this long anticipated book. I had the debate over whether I should watch the movie first or read the graphic novel, but in the end I’m probably glad I read first before watching.

Watchmen, for those who don’t already know, is about the next generation of super heroes who come together when some of them start getting killed. It’s much more than that, but hard to explain in quick terms. The graphic novel was good, the longest one I’ve read so far, and at times I had to admit confusing in the beginning. Once I got into it more I was able to follow the character development and back stories.

I’m not sure how the movie compares but I’m looking forward to finding out soon.
