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.

‘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.

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.

'Womersley has produced a signally effective study of the various processes which create an authorial reputation, assiduously demonstrating how careful documentary reconstruction can restore the rich textuality of a writer's life... This is a major contribution not only to Gibbon scholarship but also to methodology.' -Review of English Studies'Erudite and absorbing new book... David Womersley has written an important book; it greatly increases our sense of the ways in which Gibbon's self-fashioning went on within the pages of his major works... Womersley has taken us where none have ventured before, in showing Gibbon as a Bowdler-like censor of his own ongoing productions.' -Pat Rogers, Times Literary SupplementWomersley examines Gibbon's conflict with his critics, in particular the spokesmen for religious orthodoxy. By considering the sequence of interactions between the historian and his readership, he illuminates what might be called Gibbon's experience of himself, at the same time deepening our understanding of the conditions of English authorship during the later eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries.
