The following pages are a chapter by chapter plot summary of each of the twelve issues of the Watchmen comic mini-series. These summaries are designed to give a simple overview of the main plot of the comic series. It does not cover any of the sub plots, such as the “Black Freighter” pirate story.
These summaries should by no means be considered a substitution for reading the actual series, but meant to be a reference of what and when something happened for those who have read the mini-series before.
We have also included images of the comic book cover art as they appeared on the original issues which were published between September, 1986 to October 1987.
