“Watchmen” Described for Screen Reader Users
During a 1940’s newspaper strike, New York City mayor Fiorello LaGuardia would read the comics over the radio so kids wouldn’t miss out on the funnies. In a similar vein, Liana Kerr is reading Watchmen for people who can’t see it:
Watchmen is a classic comic book written by Alan Moore and drawn by Dave Gibbons, published in 1986.

I’ve described it panel-by-panel for blind and low-vision readers, including the supplementary material at the end of each chapter. Text within asterisks indicates bold text.
