Watchmen: Absolute Edition
Wow, I didn’t know there was a fancy new hardback edition of Watchmen, the greatest graphic novel produced by mankind to date. (TIME called it one of the 100 greatest novels, graphic or not, of the century — nice.)
I note it because I was actually just flipping through Watchmen last night, marveling as I always do at its really peculiar and appealing vibe. I guess it’s probably just the vibe of the ’80s… but there is something very nostalgic about it, too. If you’ve read the book, I’m curious to hear if you know what I mean.
