Shelfdust Presents: The Fifty Best #1 Issues

Aug 13, 2023

This week it's time to dream of a better loving world, as we look at the comic which ended up in 2nd place: Watchmen #1 by Alan Moore, David Gibbons and John Higgins!

Of course we all know everything about Watchmen at this point and then some, being a reimagining of the Charlton superhero characters told across twelve issues. You can see slivers of the original characters within these new shells, but for the most part this is something which not only builds on what came before, but reaches down to shatter the foundations and create something entirely its own and unpredictable. This week special guest Kelly Kanayama joins Matt to talk all about it!
