      Not necessarily. There can be some likable aspects to the series as a story, but as far as what it has done to comic books, the conclusion that more graphic subject matter will appeal to a broader audience, may have been misjudged.

      Watchmen ushered in the idea that explicit subject matter was more mature.

      Yet in the 1950s, the death and gore issues were clearly being read by teens.

      Whose to say that those who indulged in post-Watchmen merely weren't more teens of that era, who believed this was a more mature comic book, while adults, who had been looking at such subject matter long before Watchmen, merely shrugged it off as a cheap way to get people to buy the books?
