About this interview

One of the first graphic novels to achieve critical acclaim, The Watchmen by Alan Moore was selected as one of the 100 best English language novels from 1923 to the present by Time Magazine critics Lev Grossman and Richard Lacayo. The novel was compared to works like Beloved by Toni Morrison, Gravity's Rainbow by Thomas Pynchon, and Blood Meridian by Cormac McCarthy. Grossman and Lacayo wrote that The Watchmen "is a book-length comic book with ambitions above its station — starring a ragbag of bizarre, damaged retired superheroes. Told with ruthless psychological realism, in fugal, overlapping plotlines and gorgeous, cinematic panels rich with repeating motifs, Watchmen is a heart-pounding, heartbreaking read and a watershed in the evolution of a young medium."
