12 Days of Christmas: Day 9!

Stressed out by Christmas shopping? Worried that you might not be able to find that one great gift on your favourite gamer or comic book fan's Wish List? No problem -- Curious Comics is here to make things easy for you! Over the weeks leading up to Christmas, we'll come up with a few suggestions on what presents we think would be great to wake up to on Christmas morning.

On the 9th Day of Christmas, my true love gave to me...

WATCHMEN!

It all begins with the paranoid delusions of a half-insane hero called Rorschach. But is Rorschach really insane or has he in fact uncovered a plot to murder super-heroes and, even worse, millions of innocent civilians? On the run from the law, Rorschach reunites with his former teammates in a desperate attempt to save the world and their lives, but what they uncover will shock them to their very core and change the face of the planet!

There has never been a better time to discover one of the best graphic novels ever written! As the soon-to-be blockbuster movie approaches theatres, everyone is reading or re-reading Alan Moore's Watchmen. And why not? It was the only graphic novel included in TIME Magazine's list of Best Novels of the 20th Century -- there must be something good about it!

Available in a standard softcover edition, a limited run hardcover edition, an alternate cover international edition, a re-released facsimile edition of the original issue #1, and a very limited Absolute Edition packed with never-before-seen production goodies, this is the Watchmen fan's ultimate Christmas! There's even something for the fan who thinks he has it all -- in a new hardcover book on the making of the classic series, Watching the Watchmen, artist Dave Gibbons gives you his own account of the genesis of the project, opening his vast personal archives to reveal excised pages, original character designs, page thumbnails, sketches and much more.

You might enjoy this Mr. Media podcast interview with Dave Gibbons, co-creator and artist of Watchmen, as he discusses the Warner Bros./Fox dispute, being on the set during production, and what he thinks of the trailer and the rough cut he saw of Watchmen. He also talks about the possibility of working with Frank Miller and the message he took to Alan Moore from Will Eisner. Here's the link!
