  • Impossible d'échapper à "Watchmen" (20minutes.fr)
    "Complexe et mystérieuse, l’aventure des «Watchmen» se déroule dans une Amérique alternative de 1985.
    Les super-héros font partie du quotidien et le monde est suspendu à l'Horloge de l'Apocalypse, symbole des tensions internationales qui, si elles éclatent, déboucheront sur une troisième guerre mondiale. Rorschach, un justicier masqué, enquête sur la mort d’un ami et découvre un complot visant à discréditer tous les super-héros. «Watchmen» a révolutionné l'univers des comics américains en donnant une profondeur jamais atteinte aux personnages de comics. Alan Moore les dépeint comme des héros fatigués et névrosés se débattant avec leurs doutes, leur l’ennui et leur paranoïa."
    Un article de Sandrine Cochard.
