If anything, I'm really, really pumped for The Minutemen...

Giving them some spotlight? Good
With story and art by Cooke? Good
The same man who gave the world DC: The New Frontier? Goooooood

Adam Hughes doing some interior work makes me very happy. Plus Azzarello and Bermejo is always amazing.

Ditto.

I mean this looks great.



Kind of looks like Dr.Manhattan is boning her. Makes it all the more sexy dough.

Another question, when are these comics going to be released? Still in 2012?

I loved Watchmen, but I'm ambivalent on the idea of prequels. On one hand, I think it would be interesting to see some of the characters' adventures prior to the Keene Act. On the other hand, I doubt that it would be as great as the original.

Really? You think that the comic book that changed the way people looked at superheroes replete with deep, intellectual and philosophical subtext would be that easy to beat?

I don't really know how they could make a sequel.

Anyways, I'll be getting these.

I wonder that too. Wouldn't that ruin the ambiguity of the original book's ending?

Yeah, not only that, but the Comedian and Rorschach are dead, and everybody else is old, living in a post-apocalyptic squid world.

I mean, I seriously don't know how they could make a sequel interesting. There is much more room to work with in prequels, but not so much with a sequel.

Actually, wasn't Watchmen ambiguous about whether or not Adrien Veidt's ruse worked?

I never thought that it was ambiguous as to whether or not he actually used the squid, but it was ambiguous as to whether or not using the squid lead to a utopian society that he planned for.

I always took it that it happened, but the ending showed that the truth would come out in Rorschach's journal, if published. Whether it was published or not, is what was left ambiguous.

If that's what you were saying?

Maybe it's because he's my favorite of the main characters or maybe it's because I'm just a wee bit delirious from the news, but I'm actually a little pumped for Nite Owl's mini.

I really don't know what to think about this. I'm incredibly interested in the Rorschach comics (Brian and Lee!), but I'm not sure If this is just a cash grab (probably not) or a misguided attempt at re-introducing these characters.

I hope this goes well and I may check them out, but why do a prequel to a GN that already laid out what happened before it, let alone showed exactly what happened.

Nite-Owl was my favorite character as well!

I'm really interested in what they'll do with Ozymandias.

As much as I love Watchmen, I've always felt that there was more development that could have been done with Ozymandias that probably wasn't explored so as to not give away his villain (depending on your view) status.

I'm not looking forward to this at all. Why couldn't DC put these amazing creative teams to work on something else?
I think the Ozymandias book has the highest potential for failure. He is my favourite character in the original novel because of how complex and fascinating he is. My view is that he is clearly an egotistical psychopath whose "plan for peace" is just a way to put himself on the same level as Alexander, Ramesses and his other idols and I fear that a spin off book will try too hard to justify his actions through foreshadowing, at the expense of his ambiguity.

I mean, I agree that these creative teams could've done wonders on some of DC's New 52 books (Darwyn Cooke on Justice League please!!) but I'm totally on board for this regardless. I mean...look at these teams!!When was the last time Jae Lee drew anything? When was the last time Adam Hughes did interiors on anything? We're getting BOTH Kuberts on a single book! Darwyn Cooke...well thats self-explanatory. I gotta give DC a LOT of credit, because they did not go into this half-cocked, they really brought the industry's cream of the crop talent to do these books. I anticipate Marvel's response to this...

The teams are impressive, but that just magnifies what a waste this is to me. Watchmen's one of those sacred cows that really, really needs no follow-up or prequels or anything. It is what it is and nothing more needs to be done with it or attached to it. Ultimately, this is all just gonna be another round of The Kingdom or The Dark Knight Strikes Again--ideas that sound like they might be interesting before you realize that pretty much everything that needed to be said was said with their predecessors.
