Watchmen (2019 Edition)
Author: by Alan Moore
A hit HBO original series, Watchmen, the groundbreaking series from award-winning author Alan Moore, presents 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.

Bruce is distracted by the seemingly impossible return of another figure believed dead: his grandfather Adrian Arkham.
He must also comfort his longtime friend, Gotham City mayor Jessica Dent, who is scarred both physically and mentally from her experience with the Riddler, which resulted in the gruesome death of her brother. But is Harvey back, plotting revenge on a city he proclaims to be guilty?
