Confused By HBO's Watchmen? The Graphic Novel Is Steeply Discounted At Amazon

If you watched the first episode of HBO's Watchmen series and felt somewhat lost, it's probably not only because Damon Lindelof is at the helm (co-creator of Lost and The Leftovers). The TV series takes place 34 years after Alan Moore's and Dave Gibbons' original comic series. Though not a direct sequel, it certainly helps to have an understanding of the source material while watching, and it just so happens that the Watchmen graphic novel is available for an excellent price at Amazon right now.

Watchmen (2019 Edition)

DC Comics released a new 2019 edition of the incredible graphic novel earlier this year. Amazon currently has it for $15, a full $10 off the list price. While books in general typically go for lower than the list price at Amazon, Watchmen was a couple bucks more just the other day; so the $15 price is in fact one of the best prices we've seen.

Watchmen (Deluxe Edition)

If you prefer a hardcover edition, the Watchmen Deluxe Edition is also on sale for $24.98 (was $40). The Deluxe Edition is 32 pages longer thanks to bonus material such as sketches.

Originally a 12-issue limited series, DC Comics turned Watchmen into a single-volume in 1987. Watchmen has been celebrated by both those in and outside of the comic book world. It received the Hugo award and was the only graphic novel to appear on Time Magazine's list of 100 best novels.

Set in 1985, Watchmen follows six retired superheroes in an alternate history United States on the brink of World War III. In this universe, the US won the Vietnam War and the public never found out about Watergate. When one of the heroes is murdered, the others come out of retirement to investigate. The seemingly straightforward plot is enhanced by an innovative panel structure, a nonlinear arc, and a side story that's spliced into the narrative.

Whether you want to read it for the first time or feel like revisiting it because of the show, Watchmen is a masterpiece that's well worth your time.
