Watchmen by Alan Moore
Watchmen is a comic that took me by surprise. It was my first superhero comic I have read, but I am not unfamiliar with the genre because they tend to be my favorites on film. I'm used to seeing superheroes save the world and Moore brings us something on a different level completely. He delved into the psyche of each hero, creating a dark world in an already dark universe. The story was so complex that I think some of the details flew past me. In the end, I was left not sure of what I thought of the story. One thing I was sure of was that I respected Moore for Watchmen. He broke superhero boundaries and left me pondering the good vs. evil in a new way.
How did Watchmen affect you? Is this one you recommend re-reading for a greater understanding?
