The Stacks Book Club – July 2023

The Stacks’ July book club selection is the Hugo Award-winning Watchmen, written by Alan Moore and illustrated by Dave Gibbons. Widely considered the greatest graphic novel ever made, the full volume was first released in 1987; it has since been adapted into the 2009 theatrical film and the 2019 HBO limited series. The story is set in an alternate reality version of 1980s America, with historical and political events affected by its cast of outlawed vigilantes, who mostly lack superhuman powers and struggle with their own tragic flaws. Its title refers to the question “Who will watch the watchmen themselves?”

We will discuss Watchmen By Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons on Wednesday, July 26th. You can find out who our guest will be by listening to our July 5th episode.
