The Watchmen by Alan Moore

The Watchmen is a 12 issue comic book put into one volume that I read at my boyfriends request. It has excerpts of a fictional book as well in its pages. The book chronicles a strange time in the 1980's. The animation is actually very good and the plot is interesting. The characters were fascinating especially one called Rorschach a vigilante whose mask looks like a Rorschach ink blot. There is actually a lot of adult content in this book and some nudity. It keeps pace with the times with worries about nuclear war and the soviet union communists. There was a movie going to be made about these comics however because of fights between creator and the movie industry the production has been stopped. The book is interesting though and worth reading.

While the movie I'm told has been delayed, I hear there is a television series. I believe the pilot came out on iTunes just recently, in fact.
