Or – “I Just Realized That He Was Always Dead In The Original…” The death of Edward Blake in the original Watchmen is the moment that catalyzes the story into action, and it is he who most represents the complicated mix of positive and negative traits that make all of Watchmen’s characters so fascinating.

DC Comics has announced that J.G. Jones has been tapped to write the next Doc Savage arc that kicks off in Doc Savage #13. The first part of J.G.’s globe-trotting adventure kicks off in the Egyptian wing of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and spans all the way to Cairo, which gives him the perfect excuse to give us this painting of DOC SAVAGE fighting a mummy. I really hope Jones nails the character and feel of Doc and crew, because I’m just on the verge of dropping the series. via The Source
