It seems as though a craze has begun in the comics industry to drive digital sales of comics up.  No longer content with the literary sophistication of actually reading a comic, the form seems to be going in the direction of the book on tape.

Not wanting to miss out on the bandwagon, DC Comics has teamed up to do the audiobook version of Watchmen and the first issue is available to download for free at iTunes at the moment.

I have to say it looks a lot more sophisticated than Invincible: The Series did (check out the trailer for that here), but at the end of the day, I spent the whole time watching it why I wasn't just reading the book.  (Aside from the fact that I loaned my copy out and it hasn't been returned.)

So, head over to iTunes and search "Watchmen" in the search bar.  Download it, check it out.

Do it fast though, because I don't know how long it's going to be available for no charge.

Worst comes to worst, it might convince a few lowly mooks to read one of the best Graphic Novels of all time.
