Before Watchmen

Ahh you guys are harsh. I think this sounds like fun, I mean its been over 20 years, its time to reopen that vault. Besides maybe we might get comic dc directs this time, god I could only hope. I mean I still have the old tomarts with those pictures in them. The movie figures were okay, but damit I want comic figures. And if I have to suffer through new media to get them then by damn I will support this series...lol. Hell I could dream for a multi pack from matty, wont happen but damn would that be sweet.

I think people are prematurely flipping out over these.


Wait until they announce the Sequel by Geoff Johns. ;) THEN flip out.


Personally, I have little interest in reading these. I don't think the hype can live up to whatever is actually written. I'll check them out eventually if I find them in clearance boxes next year, but if I don't, no big loss.


I think Alan Moore is a big bearded tantrum.

Seriously? What's the point? Everything was already covered in the original series.


Everybody points fingers at Dan Didio for making this happen, but I think this is how it really went down when new DC President Diane Nelson came aboard.

Diane:"So I'm having trouble deciphering our TPB catalog. Which of these books are sequels to the Watchmen book?"

Dan:"Er..well none of them. See, it's sort of a stand alone book. And it's quite revered by fanboys so we--"

Diane:"Wait. Are you telling me our best selling IP is not being routinely milked for every last cent possible?"

Dan:"Wellll...ermm. Yes. Sorta. Yes."


Dan:"*gulp* Because it's sorta a stand alone story and its very revered by fanb--"

Diane:"I'm gonna cut you off right there, Dan. I don't give two spits about fanboys. I care about stockholders. And I'm assuming if you care having your job next year, you will IMMEDIATELY set about cranking more Watchmen books out right the $#%@ NOW!! Capische?!?"


And so he did.

Ummmm...a little thing called $$$.


DC is a business. They sell comics to make money. They've obviously done some market research that says this would sell.
