Overview Provide an in-depth exploration ofthe graphic novel Watchmen
using one of the fivecritical approaches we discussed(historical,psychological,
gender, eco-critical, or Marxist) as a lens. Your essay must include outside
research and be 2000-3500 words, not including the Works Cited page.
Audience, Evidence, and StructureUse the “Introduction to Critical
Approaches handout to determine which critical approach you are taking,
which terminology you shouldtry to incorporate, and which pitfalls to avoid.
Develop a thesis and claims to support it which clearly reflect this approach.
Assume that your readers have read Watchmen,but have not read the outside
sources you will be providing to back up your claims and haven’t looked at the
graphic novel through this lens. Cite(quote from)5-10 credible sources
. At least 3 must beeper -reviewed scholarly journal articles or professionally
published books accessed through the Grossmont College Library databases
. Refer back to “Researching Credible Sources” for help on how to navigate

Integrate outside sources using standard MLA format, and follow the 5

“Constructing a Works Cited Page tutorial.Develop claims that relate
clearly back to your thesis statement.In other words, do not let your
outside sources drive the structure of your essay by simply summarizing what
others have to say. Be sure your thesis statement and claims all clearly reflect
one of the critical approaches. Incorporate evidence from the graphic novel
in each body paragraph this includes both quotes and 5-15 images When
referencing any examples from Watchmen, cite the chapter, page, and panel
number.Include at least one countering move This will be highlighted blue.

Sources Support your own ideas with the prestige of established critics’
names,essentially augmenting your authority via academic name
•Disagree with a known critic, challenging his or her ideas. Do not be
intimidated by big names: Your challenge more than likely will be welcome
to many readers who share your disagreement.
•Accept a critic’s general statement and apply it specifically
—perhaps in ways not originally intended by the critic.
•Conversely you can accept a critic’s specific statement and apply itgenerally
.You do not need to find critics who write expressly about your topic. In
fact, the stronger, the more original your thinking, the less
likely it will be that you will find such specific support.
Instead find critics who develop
