The Watchmen Companion collects for the first time long-out-of-print, rarely seen material based on the landmark comic book series!
An HBO hit original series, Watchmen, the groundbreaking series from award-winning author Alan Moore, presents a world where the mere presence of American superheroes changed historythe U.S. won the Vietnam War, Nixon is still president, and the Cold War is in full effect.
During the creation of Watchmen, Ray Winninger and Daniel Greenberg worked under the guidance of Alan Moore to further expand the world and history of the Watchmen universe.
This Moore-sanctioned prequel came to life in the form of two game modules, Watchmen: Watching the Watchmen and Watchmen: Taking Out the Trash, along with the extensive Watchmen Sourcebook, which incorporated new mythology and adventures alongside new art from series artist Dave Gibbons. These rare, long-out-of-print books are now collected for the first time ever in one extensive, oversize hardcover collection.
Featuring a brand-new introduction by Ray Winninger, writer of Watchmen: Taking Out the Trash and the Watchmen Sourcebook, this one-of-a-kind collection also presents The Question #17 (guest-starring Rorschach) and never-before-collected material such as the first appearance of Watchmen from DC Spotlight #1, the Who's Who pages dedicated to the Watchmen characters, and a behind-the-scenes article and art from the making of the landmark series.
