"A very good buy!"
4 stars"

This is definitely the best version of Watchmen money can buy (and it is a lot of money). An excellent reproduction of the original comic, with plenty of extra material throughout. If you are a fan than this is something to get.

Having said that however I can't give it 5-stars, as this is simply not as good (Construction wise) as the Absolute Sandman. Primarily Sandman was leather-bound and hence was excellently sturdy. However this edition of Watchmen uses a paper slip-case which is easily damaged, around a standard hardback binding. I do notice though at least on this site that Sandman is another $100, somewhat odd as I believe in the US these two absolute editions are similarly priced.

This oversized hardcover collection, packaged inside a beautifully designed slipcase, will be the cornerstone of any serious comic book collection. Each page of art has been restored and recolored by WildStorm FX and original series colorist John Higgins and approved by Gibbons to appear as originally intended.

Additionally, this grand tome will include 48 pages of supplemental material produced exclusively for the Graphitti Designs WATCHMEN hardcover edition and not seen since their original publication. Included therein is a cornucopia of rare and historically valuable treasures, including samples of Moore's WATCHMEN scripts, the original WATCHMEN proposal, Gibbons's conceptual art, cover roughs, and much, much more!

Hardback Book with slipcase.

Reviews for Watchmen

"A work of ruthless psychological realism, it’s a landmark in the graphic novel medium. It would be a masterpiece in any." -TIME, TIME MAGAZINE’s 100 best English-language novels from 1923 to the present.

"Watchmen is peerless." - Rolling Stone

"His sci-fi detective masterpiece Watchmen made [Alan Moore] the comic industry's de facto leader back in 1986." - The Guardian

"A masterwork representing the apex of artistry in its respective medium . . . Trailblazing." - Entertainment Weekly

"A brilliant piece of fiction." - Richard Gehr, The Village Voice

"When first serialized in 1986-7, this extraordinary story took the comics world by storm, and its fresh approach, more mature and realistic than most other mainstream comics of the time, became a template for much of what came later...This remains a pinnacle of comics achievement, and no collection should be without it.."
