Note to 23

December 27, 2009

Watchmen by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons (DC Comics, 1986) is the masterwork of the graphic novel (comic book) storytelling form. The book deconstructs practically every superhero trope, but also serves as a serious existentialist work. Time magazine once cited Watchmen as one of the best English-language novels published since the magazine’s inception in 1923. Simply brilliant.
