DC Comics unveils full list of Watchmen prequelsWe’ve heard rurmurs of the so-called Watchmen 2 project, and even an image or two mysteriously traipsed into the internet wilds a few weeks back.

Now, in the wee hours of the morning, DC Comics has surreptitiously unleashed the full list of Before Watchmen prequel comic books slated for Summer 2012. The talent on tap here is not unsizable

Here’s the full roster of Before Watchmen comics;

● 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, a new issue will be released, and will feature a two-page back-up story called CURSE OF THE CRIMSON CORSAIR, written by original series editor Len Wein and with art by original series colorist John Higgins. There will also be a single issue, BEFORE WATCHMEN: EPILOGUE, featuring the work of various writers and artists, and a CRIMSON CORSAIR story by Wein and Higgins.

    I’m the same with Moore’s work, and I think all his best work is a chore. But that’s kind of the point: It has a depth of tohguht behind it that other graphic novels don’t. He can tell a more complex story and use the medium to his advantage better than most, though Warren Ellis clearly has the same DNA but with a more accessible, if rawer, edge.

      Posted on hmm that’s a weird list. for me, honestly, most of them fall into the Watchmen slodhun’t even be a movie really list and yet, here comes Watchmen, and it looks pretty good, so who knows.Of their list, Runaways and Criminal were the two that instantly jumped out at me as, Ooh, that’d be cool. i’m bad at thinking of stuff for things like this, so the only thing that comes to mind is Box Office Poison, which I’d pitch as Friends starring Harvey Pekar. I could see that being a really good indie flick. A couple juicy parts in there for name actors slumming a little

        I won’t lie, Watchmen was a chore for me to get through at first. I atteeptmd to read it like 3 times before I finally went cover to cover. Once I did, I regretted how long it took me. Such a great book.I don’t think I have ever read anything from Moore that I disliked really. Miracle Man, V, and Watchmen are some of my favorite reads of all time.
