    Default Any graphic novels like Watchmen

    Is there any other graphic novels that have the bonus material at the end of each chapter like in Watchmen?

    Thanks.

    A number of Alan Moore comics have supplementary material, epistolary stuff, et al. Both proper volumes of League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (a short story, an almanac, and more), while Black Dossier was pretty much all supplementary. There were fictional essays for Tom Strong.

    Early Hellblazer would have song lyrics from John's band and fictional magazine articles, penned by series writer Jamie Delano.

    Cerebus had a lot of supplementary stuff, but it's not really tied to the narrative so much as just giving the creator a forum.

    True that the letter pages and Sim essays were not part of the story. However I found them to be a huge part of the appeal. Actually, in some cases they were quite relevant to the comic, in giving a depth of background knowledge to the authors who were appearing as characters in the comic.

    Try Rick Veitch's Greyshirt tpb. That's got a newspaper section at the end of each issue.

    For bonus Watchmen material try to track down a copy of Mayfairs Games Watchmen Sourcebook for their defunct 2nd Edition DC Heroes Role Playing Game.

    It's very well written and gives detailed write ups and background information on pretty much every character used in the mini series and has lots of fun stuff like pages from "Under the Hood", newspaper clippings of the Minute men. The detailed backgrounds on some of the very minor characters is outstanding.
