DC Officially Announce Watchmen Prequels


If it interests you, DC have announced the lineups for “Watchmen: Before”, a series of stories which will tell the origins of the various characters from Alan Moore’s critically-acclaimed series. Alan Moore, presumably, is preparing to go into a mad rant even as we speak. The creative teams and titles are as follows:

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 week will see a new comic released by DC, each one with a two-page backup by Len Wein and John Higgins (the colourist for the original Watchmen). The back-up will centre around that terrible pirate meta-narrative thing Moore wrote into the first Watchmen. We don’t really care about any of this, despite some decent creative teams, so you won’t be hearing anything more about this from us. Alan Moore is overrated and also SNORE.
