In 1986, the comic-book world experienced a profound paradigm shift, thanks to writer Alan Moore and artist Dave Gibbons. Gone were the long-held notions that crime-fighters always did the morally right thing for the intellectually right reason, that heroes and villains were rigidly defined constants, that good always prevailed over evil, and that happy endings were a foregone conclusion. In their place, there was Watchmen.
Since the release of Moore’s seminal deconstruction of the superhero genre, others have revisited Watchmen’s dystopian setting in the form of a film adaptation, role-playing books, prequel comics, and multiple video games, all built upon the foundation that Moore and Gibbons laid down thirty years ago. With DC Comics soon to bring Watchmen’s characters into its mainstream continuity, and with a Watchmen TV show reportedly in the works, it's time to reexamine all that has come before.
Rich Handley’s Watching Time: The Unauthorized Watchmen Chronology will bring you:
Designed both for fans new to Watchmen and for those who can identify Hooded Justice’s parents, Ozymandias’s four islands, Silk Spectre’s favorite crooner, Mothman's family butler, and Rorschach’s breakfast food of choice, Watching Time tells you everything you need to know about Alan Moore’s highly influential and Hugo Award-winning epic.
