‘My book is a comic book. Not a movie, not a novel. A comic book. It’s been made in a certain way, and designed to be read a certain way: [...].‘: Alan Moore, der Texter von Watchmen, betonte immer wieder, dass er sich mit der Verfilmung seiner Werke kritisch auseinandersetzte. Er lehnte alle bisherigen Verfilmungen seiner Werke ab. Der Graphic Novel-Komplex der Watchmen hielt dabei immer eine besondere Position inne. Terry Gilliam nannte die Reihe das ,Krieg und Frieden‘ der Graphic Novels; Brad Meltzer, ebenfalls Autor von Graphic Novels, bezeichnete Watchmen als den CITIZEN KANE der Comics. Alan Moore selbst betonte, dass er bei der Konzeption der Watchmen vornehmlich die besonderen rezeptionellen Fähigkeiten der Comics hervorheben wollte. Seine Arbeit wurde konzipiert als unfilmbares Material. Dennoch erwarben die Lawrence Gordons Productions schon früh die filmischen Rechte um das Graphic Novel als Vorlage für eine Film-Adaption zu verwenden. Immer wieder versuchten verschiedene weitere Produzenten im letzten Vierteljahrhundert die Comics als Filmmaterial aufzugreifen, doch in fast allen Fällen waren die Versuche vergebens - bis zu Zack Snyders polarisierender Watchmen-Adaption.

Only a miracle-and faulty workmanship-prevents a germ-packed warhead from exploding when a terrorist missile slams into the United Nations building in New York. The lettering on the side of the rocket is Russian, which presents the West with its worst nightmare: a direct link between a fanatical U. S. terrorist group and Russian gangsters with access to the germ warfare arsenal of the former Soviet Union. This potentially devastating attack reunites the FBI's Russian expert William Cowley and Moscow's Organized Crime Director Dimitri Danilov. Their task: to penetrate and destroy the unknown group claiming responsibility before they can strike again. And as the Superpowers teeter on the brink of diplomatic meltdown, Cowley and Danilov make another nightmare discovery. The terrorists are being cleverly financed by ultra-sophisticated hackers looting U. S. banks, breaking into law enforcement and Pentagon computers, and keeping themselves always one click ahead of the frantic pursuit. The Watchmen is a spine-chilling chase that strikes at the heart of our fears of terrorism and its prevention.

Wonder Woman. Asterix the Gaul. Watchmen. These popular comics, and many others, use classical sources, narrative patterns, and references to enrich their imaginative worlds and deepen the stories they present. This volume explores that rich interaction. Son of Classics and Comics presents thirteen original studies of representations of the ancient world in the medium of comics. Building on the foundation established by their groundbreaking Classics and Comics (2011), George Kovacs and C. W. Marshall have gathered a wide range of essays with a new, global perspective. Chapters are helpfully grouped to facilitate classroom use, with sections on receptions of Homer, on manga, on Asterix, and on the sense of a "classic" in the modern world. All Greek and Latin passages are translated. Lavishly illustrated, the volume significantly widens the range of available studies on the reception of the Greek and Roman worlds in comics, and deepens our understanding of comics as a literary medium. Son of Classics and Comics will appeal to students and scholars of classical reception as well as comics fans.

How do spectators become emotionally involved in cinema? Starting from this question, the book suggests an original view about a critical period in United States film history. In a detailed analysis of individual films, an image emerges of a complex interplay between three affective modes – suspense, paranoia, and melancholy – which draw the spectators to reflect in unique ways about contradictions in their own feelings.

Before skyscrapers and streetlights glowed at all hours, American cities fell into inky blackness with each setting of the sun. But over the course of the nineteenth and early twentieth century, new technologies began to light up streets, sidewalks, buildings, and public spaces. Peter C. Baldwin’s evocative book depicts the changing experience of the urban night over this period, visiting a host of actors—scavengers, newsboys, and mashers alike—in the nocturnal city. Baldwin examines work, crime, transportation, and leisure as he moves through the gaslight era, exploring the spread of modern police forces and the emergence of late-night entertainment, to the era of electricity, when social campaigns sought to remove women and children from public areas at night. While many people celebrated the transition from darkness to light as the arrival of twenty-four hours of daytime, Baldwin shows that certain social patterns remained, including the danger of street crime and the skewed gender profile of night work. Sweeping us from concert halls and brothels to streetcars and industrial forges, In the Watches of the Night is an illuminating study of a vital era in American urban history.

Alan Moore's Watchmen is set in 1985 and chronicles the alternative history of the United States where the US edges dangerously closer to nuclear war with the Soviet Union. Within this world exists a group of crime busters, who don elaborate costumes to conceal their identity and fight crime, and an intricate plot to kill and discredit these "superheroes." Alan Moore's Watchmen popularized the graphic novel format, has been named one of Time magazine's top 100 novels, and is now being made into a highly anticipated movie adaptation. This latest book in the popular Blackwell Philosophy and Pop Culture series peers into Moore's deeply philosophical work to parse and deconstruct the ethical issues raised by Watchmen's costumed adventurers, their actions, and their world. From nuclear destruction to utopia, from governmental authority to human morality and social responsibility, it answers questions fans have had for years about Watchmen's ethical quandaries, themes, and characters.

Sensationeller Manuskriptfund - das literarische Ereignis im Sommer 2015 Harper Lee hat bisher nur einen Roman veröffentlicht, doch dieser hat der US-amerikanischen Schriftstellerin Weltruhm eingebracht: „Wer die Nachtigall stört“, erschienen 1960 und ein Jahr später mit dem renommierten Pulitzer-Preis ausgezeichnet, ist mit 40 Millionen verkauften Exemplaren und Übersetzungen in mehr als 40 Sprachen eines der meistgelesenen Bücher weltweit. Mit „Gehe hin, stelle einen Wächter“ – zeitlich vor „Wer die Nachtigall stört“ entstanden – erscheint nun das Erstlingswerk. Das Manuskript wurde nie veröffentlicht und galt als verschollen – bis es eine Freundin der inzwischen 89-jährigen Autorin im September 2014 fand. In „Gehe hin, stelle einen Wächter“ treffen wir die geliebten Charaktere aus „Wer die Nachtigall stört“ wieder, 20 Jahre später: Eine inzwischen erwachsene Jean Louise Finch, „Scout“, kehrt zurück nach Maycomb und sieht sich in der kleinen Stadt in Alabama, die sie so geprägt hat, mit gesellschaftspolitischen Problemen konfrontiert, die nicht zuletzt auch ihr Verhältnis zu ihrem Vater Atticus infrage stellen. Ein Roman über die turbulenten Ereignisse im Amerika der 1950er-Jahre, der zugleich ein faszinierend neues Licht auf den Klassiker wirft. Bewegend, humorvoll und überwältigend – ein Roman, der seinem Vorgänger in nichts nachsteht.

Modern Bible scholars teach that the Church will be miraculously kept from Tribulation in an event called the "Rapture," yet the Bible is strangely quiet about such an event! This fascinating book finally makes the study of the last days understandable. Using clear explanations, the notion that the church will be "raptured" before the time of the "Great Tribulation" is proven a dangerous deception. The key to understanding Bible prophecy is revealed, and the fascinating reason why this key has been kept hidden for generations only to be recently made known is explained.
