I saw this graphic novel show up in the home feed for one of my friends on Goodreads. She interacts with a fantastic variety of readers, and consistently reads interesting things. Her summary mentioned the story line was about bullying, but it was her allusion to an ending that left her with a dilemma she could not resolve that piqued my interest.
I read this graphic novel in one sitting. The story is as sombre as the illustrations drawn entirely in black and white.
I received Watchmen as one of those Secret Santa “just exchange with one other person in the office” kinds of gifts. Boy did I luck out! A fellow geek had heard me talking about hobbits or house elves and thought I would enjoy this read.
How did I miss this interpretation of the super hero genre?
The story mostly takes place in 1985, a fantastic time for drawing horrific fashion and hair! Loved it. Super heroes have gone underground or retired after the Keene Act made their vigilante acts illegal. But someone has started killing them.
