As most of you know the Ultimate cut is being re-released on Blu-ray and includes the hardcover, It advertises the hardcover as the "First DC Comics Hardcover Edition"

Is that the Hardcover Edition with the Re-touched colors and Special features... and stuff? the one you can get off Amazon for about $20 (NOT the absolute Edition or Paperback)

Yup, that's the one... the edition released in 2008 which is essentially a shrunken down, less luxuriant version of ABSOLUTE WATCHMEN but features the same restored and recoloured art and supplementary 'making of' material (which itself originally appeared in the very first hardcover edition published way back in 1987, under licence by Graphitti Designs).
This 2008 print was advertised as featuring 'new' cover art by Gibbons... which is, in actuality, nothing of the sort but rather a regurgitated character concept drawing from back in the day of original development and so produced before the first issue of the comic maxi-series had even hit the shelves.
