DC Comics published the graphic novel, which was written by Moore, along with artist Dave Gibbons and colorist John Higgins, in 1986.
The comic was set in an alternate 1985 at the height of the Cold War, where Richard Nixon is still president and costumed heroes roam the streets. In this world, superheroes have been around since the 1940s but have either been outlawed or under government control. The story revolves around a group of mostly retired American superheroes who investigate the murder of one of their own, only to uncover a conspiracy.
