Spring/Summer '09 Reading Group List

“What Alan Moore crafted in the late 1980s unarguably catapulted the graphic novel to the forefront of pop culture and contemporary literature. Employing a deconstructed superhero persona, a comic within a comic, and a brutally honest commentary on American optimism, Moore gave rise to something exceedingly greater than the sum of its parts.”
— Katie Capaldi, McLean & Eakin Booksellers, Petoskey, MI

January 2009 Indie Next List

“Watchmen is not only the best graphic novel out there, but also one of the most brilliantly conceived and executed pieces of fiction I've ever encountered. Two decades of history -- from the end of WWII to the depths of the Cold War -- memoirs of former hero crusaders, interviews, psychiatric documents, and scientific memoranda intersperse the story panels and add a level of complexity and meta-textual mold-breaking unmatched before or since.”
— Grant, DIESEL, A Bookstore, Oakland, CA
