As we discover that DC is making the Alan Moore creations The Watchmen more and more a part of the DC Universe, frankly, I’m happy, although I’m sure Mr. Moore is not. For more on this subject, check out this link here at MajorSpoilers.com. Many comics fans, some of them here at this site, aren’t all that thrilled with the idea of this taking place. After all, The Watchmen has been a powerful and unique experience for us, and even the Before Watchmen event didn’t quite live up to the series that it was to explore. Well, at least I

When I was growing up, I loved 80-page Giants! In those days, these books cost like a quarter and were reprints from 5-10 years earlier. But I hadn’t read them, so I pored over each and every story! It was an adventure into tales I hadn’t read before, but still grew to love. DC Universe: Rebirth #1 is a lot like those wonderful comics. There’s a LOT going on, some of it touching on recent comics stories, others going back into previous DC storylines I enjoy remembering.

I often like to say that Grant Morrison is like the little girl who’s great when she’s good, but awful when she’s bad. I’ve loved certain Morrison stories over the years, and I’m into The Multiversity from DC Comics as well right now. However, there was one Morrison tale that really drew me in back when it first arrived here in the States, and that was Zenith. I had to buy them in special editions from 2000 AD, and some were very hard to get! Recently, I discovered that this story was going to be reprinted with access to the
