In a world where the mere presence of American superheroes changed history, the U.S. won the Vietnam War, Nixon is still president and the Cold War is in full effect. WATCHMEN begins as a murder mystery but soon unfolds into a planet-altering conspiracy. As the resolution comes to a head, the unlikely group of reunited heroes—Rorschach, Nite Owl, Silk Spectre, Dr. Manhattan and Ozymandias—must test the limits of their convictions and ask themselves where the true line is between good and evil. Collects #1-12.
