    "This is an absolute cult classic, and just the sort of thing I was looking for. It used to be a graphic novel, but most people don't even know that because the movie adaptation was so good it became more popular. Awesome result."

    "This is the greatest Batman story ever told. ... Having just discovered many of these popular Batman stories but never heard of this one. ... Written by Jeph Loeb and illustrated by Tim Sale. It opens with an homage to the Godfather, but this mobster saga is much more about the Batman than the mobsters dying violently every few pages."

    "I really liked this book. It has the elements I look for in a book. It's mysterious, it's heroic, there are elements of villainous activity; just a great story overall. The writing is very descriptive and I found myself having to read some of the paragraphs twice to get a handle on what was going on, but I loved the book so much that I didn't mind doing so. There are some inner monologues that I found intriguing and interesting. A great price for a great book."

    "Watchmen is a popular graphic novel centered around a group of superheroes and their fall from grace. It's a good choice for those looking into graphic novels that have been adapted into film."

    " I've never been a great consumer of comics or manga, only the absolute classics have gotten my attention, but the fantastic artwork and narrative flow of Otomo's masterpiece was enthralling. Being a manga, and not an especially wordy one, I tore through this whole 300+ page volume in under an hour, then turned around and immediately ordered the other volumes. The ideas and themes Otomo tackles in this series are famously complex and thought provoking, but they never become overpowering or discouraging due to the thorough depiction of a wonderful setting. The world these characters live in is vibrant and every bit as interesting as its cyberpunk/sci-fi mashup of a plot. "

    "Another vampire book, yes. Is it good? The author certainly has a knack for writing, though I feel his comic book experience doesn't lend to well to a full fledged novel. It's breezy, but an unsatisfying read."
