All due respect to Moore's Watchman but I think the TDKR is the best graphic novel ever written.
I can see where your going with this statement do to the fact that maybe the Millers TDKR is a lot more darker and so badass. I think both TDKR and Watchmen are different, yet they do have some things that are the same. Fighting against the government, coming back from retirement, but i feel like TDKR feels real. I think because batman just dosent have any powers makes the story a bit more interesting, more riveting. But you cant go wrong with the watchmen story. Its different because i feel like Dr. manhattan makes the story different. Its the only man with powers, while everyone else dosent have powers. in the end, i think there both very great storys by both of them.
