So, last night instead of watching TV I picked up Watchmen, a compilation of comic books. I've read it before, but it's been a while. It's truly excellent. The art is neat, and the writing is superb. I definitely recommend it.
Yes, the watchmen is great; I've owned the graphic novel for years. It really shows what is possible in that medium beyond the blah stuff that fills the comic market in general. Another one that falls into that category is the Dark Knight Returns. I have it and can lend it to you; quite excelent.
