Sadly, I am reminded that I never posted a review of this amazing book. Thing is, having been reminded, I'm not sure that now is the time to talk about it. Suffice to say: a profound exploration of the human tendency to evil, wrapped within a retelling of the Jack the Ripper narrative.
Whilst I don't think that Alan Moore's work is as theologically interesting as Gaiman's Sandman sequence, he's undoubtedly a visionary genius. If you haven't read 'Watchmen' - well, I don't know what to say. Do you read at all?
(Haven't seen the film; don't feel a particular need to. In other words, I'll catch it when it comes out on Sky next...)
