    Swamp Thing? Because it wasn’t inspired in someway by Watchmen?

    i think it’s a great idea, but they need to promote the heck out of this OUTSIDE of the regular circuit. i.e. convention and LCS. maybe in theatres, or book stores or an ad on TV. like: ‘you liked watchmen? maybe you’ll like one of these’.

    @ Bob:

    Identity Crisis. Because it was… Identity Crisis. And, thus, well, not to put too fine a point on it, in nothing resembling the same league as either a story or a work of art as any of the others.

    I think Identity Crisis actually makes more sense than the others, except perhaps Swamp Thing. The idea is to tap into new fans of Watchmen, so they also make available another series where heroes have to solve a mystery. In Watchmen it’s ‘who is seemingly killing heroes’, in Identity Crisis it’s ‘Who is targetting heroes loved ones, or knows their secret identities’.

    Identity Crisis makes so much sense to me. And I thought it was a good story actually.
