"A masterwork representing the apex of artistry in its respective medium . . . Trailblazing."
— Entertainment Weekly
With a major motion picture in production for release spring 2009 from Warner Bros., Paramount Pictures and director Zack Snyder (300), this is DC Comics' first-ever hardcover edition of the Hugo Award-winning epic from writer Alan Moore and artist Dave Gibbons, offered at DC's standard trim size. One of the most influential graphic novels of all time and a perennial bestseller, WATCHMEN has only grown in stature since its original publication. This volume features a new cover by Gibbons and contains the high-quality, recolored pages found in WATCHMEN: THE ABSOLUTE EDITION, which were restored by WildStorm FX and original series colorist John Higgins. Also included are selected bonus sketch materials.
