Watchmen at 10: As a movie, anyway

Ten years ago, Alan Moore (and Dave Gibbons)’s Watchmen finally made it out of development hell and onto the big screen.

Only it wasn’t Alan Moore’s Watchmen, but Zack Snyder’s. Well, some of it. Maybe.I first read the comic books when I was a high schooler and later got the graphic novel that collected all of them. It was like no other comic “superhero” story I had ever seen.

Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?

This was one of the books I required of students in my First Year Writing class at Notre Dame in 1996. (Others included All Quiet on the Western Front, Bang the Drum Slowly, and Siddhartha.) This probably made me among the first ever to use a graphic novel as a university course text.

I liked the movie. I *loved* the graphic novel.
