Moore's Absolute Watchmen: a review

In the November 20 New York Times Book Review, Dave Itzkoff has written an excellent review of the Watchmen reissue, Absolute Watchmen. Read it online. FYI: this oversized hardcover edition includes "preliminary notes of the illustrator Dave Gibbons . . . script pages, the original series proposal and other long-unavailable material," but it'll also set you back $75. D.

Watchmen and The Dark Knight Returns should be required reading for superhero fans of any stripe. That is all.

I sometimes wonder what a pristine set of the original Watchmen comics would be worth these days.

Then I put them back in the drawer.
