Overseen by “Watchmen” illustrator Dave Gibbons and produced by Snyder, “Watchmen: The Complete Motion Comic “contains all 12 chapters of “Watchmen,” the most celebrated graphic novel of all time, adding motion, voice and sound to the book’s strikingly drawn panels, spanning everything from the mysterious demise of the Comedian to the crisscrossed destinies of loosely allied superheroes to their fateful impact on the world.

Further, the release will include the Watchmen Video Journals, a Chemical Romance Music Video and a Digital Copy of the movie’s theatrical version.

This new version of “Watchmen” will arrive on November 3 for $43.87 as a 5-disc DVD set and $59.99 as a 4-disc Blu-Ray Disc set.
