Reviewing this collection is rather difficult given how different the two stories are. The first one, titled "Ozymandias" and about the character of the same name, is a fascinating look into the mind of a superhero who's prepared to do terrible things in the service of the greater good. It's drawn very well and certainly worth reading.

However, the pirate comic is totally different. It's dark, depressing, and violent for the sake of it, without there being any clear point to the whole thing. The artwork is interesting at times. Overall, though, it's rather mediocre. Balancing out the two stories means that the overall book is a solid four out of five stars for me. I'd get it but skip the pirate-related material.

I loved the Watchmen so I had to read the 'Before Watchmen' graphics as well! Reading through Ozymandias story was pretty entertaining. It's nice to see another layer to him, to truly understand his perspective in the Watchmen. The story of the Crimson Corsair was decent, but I wasn't much of a fan of it.
