Galleycat on Watchmen: Overrated?
Ron at mediabistro.com's "Galleycat" sums up the reaction
to his assertion that 100 Best Novels List in Time
might be overrated. He also notes the number of Time Warner media writers who have covered the book in laudatory fashion, although he quotes the person who included Watchmen
on the Time
list saying he had no idea there was a new version of the book coming out when he started, and quotes Newsarama
where the author of the recent Entertainment Weekly
piece says the same thing.
The only weird part is when Lev Grossman says Watchmen
was included on Time
's list above other graphic novels because of its influence, which is odd in that few of the 99 prose books they included seem to embody that particular value.
