Click images to enlarge...

"Watchmen" is set in an alternate 1985 America in which costumed superheroes are part of the fabric of everyday society, and the 'Doomsday Clock' which charts the USA's tension with the Soviet Union is permanently set at five minutes to midnight.

When one of his former colleagues is murdered, retired masked vigilante 'Rorschach' sets out to uncover a plot to kill and discredit all past and present superheroes.

As he reconnects with his former crime-fighting group of superheroes, Rorschach glimpses a wide-ranging conspiracy with catastrophic consequences for the future.

Their mission is to watch over humanity, but who is watching the Watchmen..?
