Before Watchmen

Postby Bamfing_Bob » Thu Aug 02, 2012 7:13 pm

This series of mini-series has been out for two months and I have bought every issue. What I love is that Every storyline is different style of art and storytelling, and yet they all tie into the story we know. Nite Owl is the bullied kid turned good guy, Silk Spectre is mommy's rebel, Comedian is a friend and avenger of the Kennedy family. I love this series. Rorschach comes out soon...

Also, The Curse of the Crimson Corsair is a pirate story (much like Black Freighter) that appears two pages at a time at the end of every installment. A great way to get people buying comics... because, to be honest, if I wasn't concerned with that storyline, I probably wouldn't have picked up Ozymandias. Glad I did though. You know why? It is written by Len Wein and drawn by Jae Lee. Amazing piece of work. Crimson Corsair is also written by Len Wein, so I am never disappointed.

Alot of controversy surrounding this comic, with Gibbons supporting it but Moore condemning it. IMHO, these do not take away from the brilliance of Watchmen. They just answer some possible questions. Why is Laurie with Dr. Manhatten? How were Nite Owl and Rorschach as a team? Pick it up if you haven't...
