I have never really liked Watchmen

After I read the first time, it rendered me incapable of generating any interest in reading it a second time!

The only thing keeping Watchmen from being the peek of comic book excelelnce is those damn pirates' segments.

I hate those. :evil:

Yeah, I must admit I found those bits a little trying.

I thought it is very, very overrated. It's good, but nothing even remotely resembling a masterpiece. And I thought V was better than Watchmen.


Well, to be fair, it was probably great and groundbreaking in 1986, but as someone who didn't even start reading comics until 2002, I went into it having already experience a world of superheroes and superhero teams that had gone far beyond what Moore did in Watchmen, so it seemed like a step backward for me. Plus, like Chappy said, it's an incredibly boring read.

I like those pirate segments. I remembered planning on reading them all at once.

Man that book is absolutely fantastic. I havn't reread it in about a year though, I will try it soon.

I wouldn't say it's boring but that's kinda how I feel too. It's important work for comics and groundbreaking but because so many writers ripped off the ideas in it, it's not as good as it once was.

And let's be fair, The Incredibles covered the same basic premise in a much more enjoyable manner.
