No matter how classy you try to make them sound, they're still comic books.

A Comic book is a serial published at least monthly. A Graphic Novel is an Illustarted novel with chapters. get your facts straight, bro, before you attack those nerds and their silly "comic books".

EDIT: honestly OP both are great but the Watchmen movie is coming out soon so it would be cool to read that before the movie.

Watchmen is the single greatest thing ever invented.

Watchmen. Although I don't particularly the artwork, the storyline is amazing. And you'd be better off having read it before you see the film that's coming out next year.
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.


Confused? Good.

Watchmen. It is simply a must read for any comic fan. Not to mention it's longer than The Dark Knight Returns, so you'll get more bang for your buck


... also, Long Halloween was better than The Dark Knight Returns
