RE: Watchmen
Well, the story has a pretty darker theme in comparison to most superhero stories, The one part that I didn't like was that, they're all Americans.There are a total of twelve issues. At first it starts with the police investigating a murder, when the police find no leads to follow up, Rorschach decides to probe further.If I say anymore, I'll ruin the story.Tongue

The movie is pretty close to the book's storyline imho. Just a few creative liberties taken by the director once in a while. I liked the movie quite a lot.

But then I read the graphic novel and I was blown away. Excellent narration, excellent artwork and Tales of the Black Freighter comic within the novel was a superb element. Also, who can forget the wonderful chapter names and linkages between chapters. congo

And almost everyone likes Rorshach the most. Big Grin Me too!

As you can very well observe, I am totally biased. Smile
