Official Press Release

Voted among Time magazine’s 100 best English-language novels from 1923 to the present, a perennial bestseller since its release and widely considered the greatest graphic novel of all time, WATCHMEN is a gripping, labyrinthine piece of comic art. Written by comics living-legend Alan Moore and featuring the iconic artwork of Dave Gibbons, it has earned an acclaimed place in modern literary history. The feature film adaptation of WATCHMEN, directed by Zack Snyder (300), will hit theatres in 2009 from Warner Bros. Pictures and Paramount Pictures.

WATCHING THE WATCHMEN [Titan Books, 21 October 2008, $39.95] is the colossal book that sheds new light on this seminal work. Providing the ultimate companion to the comics masterpiece, artist Dave Gibbons gives his own account of the genesis of WATCHMEN in this majestic volume, opening his archives to reveal excised pages, early versions of the script, original character designs, sketches and much more, including posters, covers and rare portfolio art. Featuring the breathtaking design of Chip Kidd and Mike Essl, WATCHING THE WATCHMEN is both a major art book in its own right, and the definitive companion to the graphic novel that changed an industry.
