Hello, comic book fans! The nerd world has been buzzing recently with talk of Before Watchmen, the upcoming project from DC which will explore the back-stories of the characters from Alan Moore’s Watchmen. Surrounded by controversy, many say the project is unnecessary, and may taint the memory of Watchmen, whose characters have not made any comics appearances since the original 12-issue limited series in 1986. Originally, I shared this opinion, but as we approach the project’s summer release date, and more information and art is released, the more excited I find myself for it.
Before Watchmen will consist of seven limited series, each exploring a different character; as well as a one-shot epilogue. The project will be published this summer.
