A Conversation for 'Watchmen' - the Graphic Novel

Watchmen only works as a graphic novel

Post 1


Great article.

It may be worth mentioning that Watchmen can only really work as a graphic novel rather than a straight forward book or novel. For a comic it is unusual that it does not have any speed/movement lines apart from one rare occasion.This makes each frame like a photo. The layout of each page is based on a 3 x 3 grid which is used for great effect showing the parallel pirate story and some important links. This is far too big an area of Watchmen to discuss here.

thanks for the article
