So Real, It's Non-Fiction

Can anyone explain why Watchmen is categorized as "non-fiction" by BookScan?

Well, since it's published by Titan Books, it's probably actually one of their 3 film tie-ins about the making-of.

I don't think so because a) the publisher is DC Comics, b) the author is Alan Moore, c) I don't think "Watching the Watchmen" would make the Top 10, and d) it says Watchmen!

Oh, I meant the one on that list is listed as being published by Titan Books rather than DC Comics.

On the other hand, I don't think any of the Titan books would sell for $17.99, since IIRC, they're all hardcover?

Luckily, we can look it up using the usefully listed ISBN number on the site...

Well duh, because it all actually happened in an alternate 80's universe. p'shaw.
