Let it be known that we at WCM.Com have a strict policy against hosting pirated copies of Watchmen or links to such copies.

However, because this is incomplete and approved by DC Comics, I'll allow it. It was intended for promotional purposes and it does a good job.

Thanks for the link, M.

A lurker who wants to read opinions about the graphic novel before choosing to buy it?

Make no mistake: If each copy of Watchmen cost $70 and so many days of scouring eBay, I'd be all in favor of posting a free copy online. But personally, I found my copy after 30 seconds at Barnes & Noble and it only cost $20.

Buying a copy legitimately gives DC an incentive to keep Watchmen in print and it sends the message that even after 20 years, people still care about the story.

So that's why I'm against pirated copies of Watchmen online and it's why I'm glad that DC put up a few sample pages.

There are people who don't have easy access to a copy. Luckily, I have relatives in the states. But yeah, people shouldn't post links to illegal copies of the graphic novel if it is against your rules.

I bought my copy in Malaysia, so yeah, no excuse you can't get them!

Plus, the internet made it more available, just amazon it. if you say that you don't have internet access, than you can't possibly read this forum! ;)

I really still havent grown tired of collecting Watchmen in its various forms. I currently have a paperback, absolute, and electronic edition of the graphic novel and I don't plan to stop anytime soon. I don't know what it is with Watchmen specifically, but its the only book (comic or otherwise) that I enjoy getting multiple copies of.

I was able to upload the graphic novel to my iPod, and even though its too small to read the whole thing is in my iPod and what's cooler is if I have some standard A/V cables lying around I can hook the iPod to my TV and literally be the one watching the Watchmen. 8-)

awesome!
speaking of watching the watchmen, i've almost finished my Rorschach origin movie-thing! (its clocking in at 10 minutes)
I've got the draft version on my creative zen as we speak!
you'll be able to download that to your iPod too, I'd think!

I too own the Absolute Edition. I had the paperback edition but, it was stolen last year. I want the individual issues, but keep getting outbid on ebay. I also now own a blood stained smiley face badge. I wear it around often.
