The Watchmen

So I just finished reading The Watchmen, which is considered by many to be a classic graphic novel. I really like graphic novels and felt that I had to read it. It was very good, and I liked the idea of it. But, I guess I was put off a bit by the amount of violence and gore. I just don’t enjoy that kind of thing.

I have really enjoyed graphic novels ever since reading Maus and have read a few other good ones since then. I guess I really enjoy the memoir type novels since you wonder when you’re looking at the cartoonish faces what the people really looked like. This novel was more in the comic book/superhero type genre and would probably be better for old superhero comic book fans who have grown up. While I liked comic books when I was young, I preferred Tin Tin and Asterix to the superhero stuff.
