Finally got around to reading The Watchmen by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons. I know i should have read this forever ago. Yes, it was out in the 80's and i got into comics just after that. Yes, it is by THE Alan Moore and i have loved The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (and refuse to discuss the film) and V for Vendetta (which was an awesome film). I think the Sandman series includes some of the best, most moving stories i have every read.
I just hadn't ever read The Watchmen.
It was absolutely mind-blowing. I am reading this 20 years after the revolution in comics the story caused and i was still stunned. Thank you thank you Alan Moore!
