    One of the most influential graphic novels of all time and a perennial bestseller, WATCHMEN has only grown in stature since its original publication. Along with a new cover by Gibbons, this volume features the high-quality, recolored pages from WATCHMEN: THE ABSOLUTE EDITION, restored by WildStorm FX and original series colorist John Higgins.

    The WATCHMEN INTERNATIONAL EDITION TP (JUL088045) is scheduled to arrive in stores on September 10 and has a Final Order Cutoff date of Thursday, August 28.

    Retailers may order this item by contacting their Diamond Customer Service Representative or DC Sales Representative, or by email at reorders@....

    Please note that when DC sells out of the existing stock at Diamond U.K. on the WATCHMEN TP (FEB058406), all trade paperback orders placed with Diamond U.K. will be filled with copies of the WATCHMEN INTERNATIONAL EDITION TP.
