Summary: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! Following two generations of masked superheroes from the close of World War II to the icy shadow of the Cold War comes this groundbreaking comic story -- the story of The Watchmen.(

Review:First off, I hated the art for this comic. I've been told it was made to look bad on purpose but that doesn't seem to be much of an excuse to me. what can I say, I'm more of a manga girl.
The story was pretty heavy but good. To be honest it wasn't really my thing but I could appreciate it. The ending was genius, no ifs,ands, or buts. I'm not sure if I've ever read an ending like that before but I think it was very realistic. It was happy in a twisted way and left me heartbroken and glad.
