Widely considered the greatest graphic novel ever written, Alan Moore's dystopian masterpiece Watchmen is now presented in a new hardcover edition with an exclusive slipcase, as a part of DC Modern Classics. In an alternate world where the mere presence of American superheroes changed history, the US won the Vietnam War, Nixon is still president, and the cold war is in full effect. Watchmen begins as a murder-mystery, but soon unfolds into a planet-altering conspiracy. As the resolution comes to a head, the unlikely group of reunited heroes--Rorschach, Nite Owl, Silk Spectre, Dr. Manhattan and Ozymandias--have to test the limits of their convictions and ask themselves where the true line is between good and evil. Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons created Watchmen and changed the course of comics' history, essentially remaking how popular culture perceived the genre. It's no coincidence that this groundbreaking volume is the first of DC Modern Classics. DC Modern Classics features the most highly regarded graphic novels from the world's foremost authority on graphic literature. These groundbreaking, genre-defining works are presented in new unique hardcover editions, each fitting into a beautifully designed exclusive slipcase, perfect for display. DC Modern Classics are a must-have for any collector, as well as any new fan just beginning to build their graphic novel library.

‘My book is a comic book. Not a movie, not a novel. A comic book. It’s been made in a certain way, and designed to be read a certain way: [...].‘: Alan Moore, der Texter von Watchmen, betonte immer wieder, dass er sich mit der Verfilmung seiner Werke kritisch auseinandersetzte. Er lehnte alle bisherigen Verfilmungen seiner Werke ab. Der Graphic Novel-Komplex der Watchmen hielt dabei immer eine besondere Position inne. Terry Gilliam nannte die Reihe das ,Krieg und Frieden‘ der Graphic Novels; Brad Meltzer, ebenfalls Autor von Graphic Novels, bezeichnete Watchmen als den CITIZEN KANE der Comics. Alan Moore selbst betonte, dass er bei der Konzeption der Watchmen vornehmlich die besonderen rezeptionellen Fähigkeiten der Comics hervorheben wollte. Seine Arbeit wurde konzipiert als unfilmbares Material. Dennoch erwarben die Lawrence Gordons Productions schon früh die filmischen Rechte um das Graphic Novel als Vorlage für eine Film-Adaption zu verwenden. Immer wieder versuchten verschiedene weitere Produzenten im letzten Vierteljahrhundert die Comics als Filmmaterial aufzugreifen, doch in fast allen Fällen waren die Versuche vergebens - bis zu Zack Snyders polarisierender Watchmen-Adaption.

Alan Moore's Watchmen is set in 1985 and chronicles the alternative history of the United States where the US edges dangerously closer to nuclear war with the Soviet Union. Within this world exists a group of crime busters, who don elaborate costumes to conceal their identity and fight crime, and an intricate plot to kill and discredit these "superheroes." Alan Moore's Watchmen popularized the graphic novel format, has been named one of Time magazine's top 100 novels, and is now being made into a highly anticipated movie adaptation. This latest book in the popular Blackwell Philosophy and Pop Culture series peers into Moore's deeply philosophical work to parse and deconstruct the ethical issues raised by Watchmen's costumed adventurers, their actions, and their world. From nuclear destruction to utopia, from governmental authority to human morality and social responsibility, it answers questions fans have had for years about Watchmen's ethical quandaries, themes, and characters.

Only a miracle-and faulty workmanship-prevents a germ-packed warhead from exploding when a terrorist missile slams into the United Nations building in New York. The lettering on the side of the rocket is Russian, which presents the West with its worst nightmare: a direct link between a fanatical U. S. terrorist group and Russian gangsters with access to the germ warfare arsenal of the former Soviet Union. This potentially devastating attack reunites the FBI's Russian expert William Cowley and Moscow's Organized Crime Director Dimitri Danilov. Their task: to penetrate and destroy the unknown group claiming responsibility before they can strike again. And as the Superpowers teeter on the brink of diplomatic meltdown, Cowley and Danilov make another nightmare discovery. The terrorists are being cleverly financed by ultra-sophisticated hackers looting U. S. banks, breaking into law enforcement and Pentagon computers, and keeping themselves always one click ahead of the frantic pursuit. The Watchmen is a spine-chilling chase that strikes at the heart of our fears of terrorism and its prevention.
