Like the following blogger I don’t find it easy to follow the panels. Even knowing which speech bubble to read first is not easy.
I think before I picked it up I knew, I don’t really like superhero novels; maybe a graphic novel with a different genre would have helped?
The website mentioned, in here where you pay for the novel, so that it displays the panels in correct order, sounds a good idea. Or apparently in November 2017 there is annotated version of the Watchmen coming out, perhaps that would allow me to understand the nuances better. Though still not certain, I would have engaged with it much as have tried reading synopsis on internet and it just seems to be random nonesensical words.
When I bought the watchmen, I did not realise it would be over 400 pages. Another reason not got far with it as, it does not seem like a book can read in bed.
