Watchmen_PaperbackWith the new HBO Watchman TV show started (October 20, 2019) decided to re-read the Watchman trade paperback.  Bought this in 2008 before the movie came out in 2009.  Like what I read and then the movie was out.  Enjoyed that even more.  Still think it is the best comic book movie every made.  Years later they put out Before Watchmen comics.  Never read them but very much want to.  Now DC Comics has a cross over event the this classic with the DC universe, called Doomsday Clock.  Plan to get my hands on that as well.  If you never read his story you should.  There are a bunch of different version out there but the story is still the same.

Before Watchmen Omnibus

Before_Watchmen_OmnibusMay years about heard about a spin off comics books for Watchmen.  Which on of the most famous graphic novels.  They made an awesome movie based off it back in 2009.  This happens to be one of my all time favourite movies.  These spins offs are prequels under the name Before Watchmen.  There are nine books with one to six issues.  Have known about the trade paperbacks for while.  All most bought a few.  It was just I wanted to them all.  It was hard to track all them down.  Now I have read about the Before Watchmen Omnibus.  This collects all the books and turning them into on giant one.  Amazon.ca has it.  The thing is they are asking $100.00.  Am sure if you add up the price of all the trades it would equal out to be the same.  Will keep on eye on it.  There might be a price drop at some point.
