Oh my gosh. Grab a copy of this and get reading. This is one of those graphic novels that justifies the genre. This book is so quotable and so poignant.

vivastory Love Alan Moore, but somehow haven't read this one yet 7mo
AshleyHoss820 @vivastory I also had somehow gone without reading this even though Watchmen is one of my favorite graphic novels. I was missing out! This is good stuff! Give it a go! 7mo

This one is great, of course. Very different from the movie, but considering how different the times were when it was published vs when the movie came out & all the knowledge about nuclear weapons & their after effects that had been gained in that time, it‘s no wonder. I also loved that they kept chapters that were merely meant to serve as interludes in the book for completeness.

They changed a lot of characters development in the movie, specially V and Evey (I prefer movie V). But most of the changes make sense.
I always think that the book is better, but in this case, it's a tie.

Damn. Alan Moore is one hell of a writer. This was written in the 80s yet the parallels to today...it‘s chilling. I watched the movie years ago and liked it but I always hesitated on reading the graphic novel. I‘m glad I finally did. The political and social commentary is still very relevant.

The illustrations- I found it difficult to decipher who was who in the panels so if their names weren‘t said, I wasn‘t always sure who was present.

Leniverse This was my gateway into graphic novels. I just saw them as “comics” before this, and preferred “real books”. 🙄 So amazing, and much better than the movie. (Although I didn‘t hate the movie like it seems most people did who had read the graphic novel first. I think it worked, just wasn‘t as good as the source material. But, you know, the book is almost always better than the movie!) 1y
Kristy_K @Leniverse Agreed. I enjoyed the movie but this was better! 1y

I enjoy a good graphic novel! They‘re fast paced. They‘re visually stunning. And they really allow authors and artists to collaborate in a unique manner of storytelling. Decided to download this guy after watching the movie the other night. Hopefully V‘s dialogue is just as alluding and alliterative as Hugo Weaving‘s portrayal.

Find it kind of disturbing how relevant this book--published in the 80s-- is to 2018

MJSanty That was my take on it as well. I especially liked the Anarchism political ideas. 1y
Trismegistus Agree 100 percent. Incidentally, Warren Ellis' Transmetropolitan is another fabulous title that's equally relevant now, if you're ever looking for another graphic novel to check out. 1y

I watched this movie years ago. I'm glad that I finally read the book. I didn't remember the government sectors having the names of body parts in the movie, "The Eye," "The Ear," "The Fingers," etc. It made me wonder what other things I've forgotten from the movie, or just didn't catch the first time around.

I've been meaning to read this classic #graphicnovel for years. Set in a London where a fascist, totalitarian government has taken over, one man sets out to bring down the authoritarian government & return freedom to the people. The artwork & writing are superb in this work. It's clear why it's regarded by many as one of the greatest graphic novels of all time.

Chelsibno Published in the early 80s, I wondered at first why it was set in 1997/8 instead of a more far off decade. However, it shows how close any society is at anytime to fall to fascism: a lesson I think we should all keep in mind. 2y
