DC Comics Announces Before ‘Watchmen’ Prequel Miniseries 

The worst kept secret in comics recently has been the upcoming DC ‘Watchmen’ prequel titles, but that has all changed today. DC’s The Source Blog has officially announced that this summer will see the release of seven ‘Watchmen’ prequel talents but some of the biggest talent at DC and in the comics industry. The seven Watchmen prequel titles will included:

  • RORSCHACH (4 issues) – Writer: Brian Azzarello. Artist: Lee Bermejo
  • MINUTEMEN (6 issues) – Writer/Artist: Darwyn Cooke
  • COMEDIAN (6 issues) – Writer: Brian Azzarello. Artist: J.G. Jones
  • DR. MANHATTAN (4 issues) – Writer: J. Michael Straczynski. Artist: Adam Hughes
  • NITE OWL (4 issues) – Writer: J. Michael Straczynski. Artists: Andy and Joe Kubert
  • OZYMANDIAS (6 issues) – Writer: Len Wein. Artist: Jae Lee
  • SILK SPECTRE(4 issues) – Writer: Darwyn Cooke. Artist: Amanda Conner

Each new issue that is released will feature a two-page back-up story called Curse of The Crimson Corsair that will be written by original series editor Len Wein and with art by original series colorist John Higgins.

‘Watchmen’ is considered the best graphic novel ever written and some comics fans consider it sacrilegious to come back and add onto such a complete and perfect work of art. I might feel differently if this was a direct sequel, but being a series of prequel miniseries with amazing talent working on them I’m actually very excited to see the early beginnings of the established characters that we have seen in ‘Watchmen’. Some of these miniseries could truly be outstanding and will make for something different and interesting to read this summer when Marvel is putting out nothing but Avengers books.

Excited for this!

“Heard a joke once: Man goes to doctor. Says he’s depressed. Says life seems harsh and cruel. Says he feels all alone in a threatening world where what lies ahead is vague and uncertain. Doctor says “Treatment is simple. Great clown Pagliacci is in town tonight. Go and see him. That should pick you up.” Man bursts into tears. Says “But, doctor…I am Pagliacci.” Good joke. Everybody laugh. Roll on snare drum. Curtains. Fade to black.”

This was me at Metrocon two summers ago. I went as Walter Kovacs [see this and this if you are unfamiliar] from the Watchmen graphic novel. You can’t see it too well, but in the last photo I have a button of the signature Watchmen bloody smiley face on my lapel.

Reblogging my Walter cosplay because it’s relevant to a conversation I’m having right now, and because it’s close to Halloween [which means all costume posts are relevant].

Yeah. Yeah, that’s right. Pregnant woman. Gunned her down. Bang. And y’know what? You watched me. You coulda changed the gun into steam or the bullets into mercury or the bottle into god damn snowflakes! You coulda teleported either of us to goddamn Australia…but you didn’t lift a finger! You don’t really give a damn about human beings. I’ve watched you. You never cared about what’s her name, Janey Slater, even before you ditched her. Soon you won’t be interested in Sally Jupiter’s little girl, either. You’re driftin’ outta touch, Doc. You’re turnin’ into a flake. God help us all.

god damn Jeffrey Dean Morgan was amazing as the comedian. 

mmmmmmmmmboy
