With all of the good Before Watchmen titles ending, DC decides to fill the holes with one shots. After reading Dollar Bill, it remains to be seen if this was a good idea. Len Wein, who has been writing the boring Ozymandias, chronicles the life and times of Dollar Bill. Infamously known for getting caught [...]
You ever read a comic and think, “This should be brilliant. I should be loving every line of dialogue. But instead, I’m hating the hell out of this.” That’s Before Watchmen Ozymandias. Especially for issue #4. Len Wein is a great writer. Looking at his history for creating characters, it’s clear that Wein can write [...]
The first Before Watchmen series has come to a close. Silk Spectre was one of the stronger Before Watchmen series, so it’s fitting that the final issue is quite the great read. Except for the last few pages. Darwyn Cooke and Amanda Conner end the series the way I’d expect them too. Laurie has a [...]
Those who have been following my reviews of Before Watchmen know that the only consistent book has been Minutemen. #4 holds to the great quality that came before it, even with the scatter brain plot. Darwyn Cooke uses Minutemen #4 as the big downfall of the Minutemen. Ursula is dead and the team is disbanding. While the darkness [...]
And I’m back! A few weeks in Walt Disney World will make you forget about some bad issues that Before Watchmen has been turning out. But Rorschach has increased the quality to a degree. Brian Azzarello is one of the few writers to get inside the head of a character and make it feel like Alan Moore’s writing. [...]
While the majority of Before Watchmen series have been mediocre, Minutemen and Silk Spectre have been great books. While some of my worries have come to fruition, the execution is so good that it’s hard to care. Also, Silk Spectre #3 is one trippy book. Darwyn Cooke and Amanda Conner bring the full trippy aspects of the sixties into this [...]
The second week of Before Watchmen has arrived. While Silk Spectre isn’t as mind boggling great as Minutemen was, it shows a lot of potential. Darwyn Cooke and Amanda Conner’s script, much like Minutemen #1, is very wordy. There are only a few panels that lack words. Most of the dialogue is needed, and well written. But there is one [...]

Before Watchmen‘s release date is coming closer and closer by the day. While it does have a star-studded list of writers and artists on board, many fans are still cold to the idea of a Watchmen prequel in any form or fashion without Alan Moore on board.
