  1. I’m liking it as well. DC is showing that they care about the characters by putting the right people on the books to begin with. Look at those names and try to argue that those aren’t the top people you would want to draw or write them. Don’t bemoan the fact that Alan Moore wouldn’t approve. I haven’t read them and won’t have an opinion until I’ve read them. Till then I look forward to the teases and sneak peeks.

      • I think it’s just kind of expected to complain about anyone extending the seminal work that is Watchmen. I’m on the “hope these are cool camp” and I’m excited to see potentially good stories about favored characters. If they turn out badly then I’ll “complain”.

        DC is throwing some muscle behind these so I feel there’s good potential for greatness here.

  2. DC has a lot of nerve, publishing these books without the participation or consent of these characters’ original creator!!!

    Dick Giordano must be rolling in his grave!
    (r.i.p. d.g. Couldn’t resist)

  3. Antonio Sanciolo on

    They’re all high calibre writers and artists; creative types that have rarely put a foot wrong in the past and always produced comics of high acclaim.

    These names have sold me on a concept I originally thought was obscene.
