Popularly cited as the point where comics came of age, Watchmen’s sophisticated take on superheroes has been universally acclaimed for its psychological depth and realism. It’s slowly and inevitably become it’s own franchise, spawning a movie, video game, and the Before Watchmen prequel comics.
I stumbled across the Watchmen motion comic on YouTube accidentally. I noticed there are quite a few unauthorized editions floating around in low resolution, though the is available in high definition on an official Warner Bros. YouTube channel. I bookmarked the playlist and watched it whenever I had time. However, after a few chapters I realized I wasn’t giving this series the proper attention it deserves and ordered the Blu-ray from . It arrived a few days later and I watched it on my big screen HDTV at night in the dark.
