    Considering Watchmen Poetics, Property, Politics SC (2014 Rutgers) Comics Culture 1st Edition 1-1ST

    1st (2014) Edition - 1st printing. By Andrew Hoberek. Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons's Watchmen has been widely hailed as a landmark in the development of the graphic novel. Considering Watchmen gives readers a new appreciation of just how radical Moore and Gibbons's blend of gritty realism and formal experimentation was back in 1986. The book also considers Watchmen's place in the history of the comics industry, as well as how it has had profound effects on literature as a whole. Andrew Hoberek examines how Moore and Gibbons engaged with the emerging discourses of neoconservatism and neoliberal capitalism, ideologies that have only become more prominent in subsequent years. Softcover, 6-in. x 9-in., 228 pages, Text (with B&W Illustrations).
