Watchmen Hardcovers, Trades for 40% Off! AND MORE!
One of the biggest happenings in comics this year has been BEFORE WATCHMEN, the event that revisits Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ legendary superhero tale through seven different mini-series by some of the best talent in comics. To celebrate, we’re making the original Watchmen story — in trade paperback, hardcover and even ABSOLUTE hardcover — available this week for 40% off!
First published in 1986, Moore and Gibbons’ Watchmen has since gone down as a modern masterpiece, not just in comic books but in literature. It was included in Time Magazine’s 100 Best Novels and hailed as "a work of ruthless psychological realism." If you’ve never read it — or if you’ve read it already and know someone who should read it, or if you want a beautiful hardcover edition — this is the time! Here’s the deal:
As they say, "It all begins with the paranoid delusions of a half-insane hero called Rorschach. But is Rorschach really insane or has he in fact uncovered a plot to murder super-heroes and, even worse, millions of innocent civilians? On the run from the law, Rorschach reunites with his former teammates in a desperate attempt to save the world and their lives, but what they uncover will shock them to their very core and change the face of the planet!"
