There has been a resurgence of sorts centered around movies being adapted from video games. The genre itself hasn’t ever really gone away, but studios are more willing to give the stories a go, despite their relatively bad history at the box office. One of the more recent would be the Assassin’s Creed adaptation that Michael Fassbender is attached [...]

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 [...]
As geeks and fanboys/girls, we always have our favorite characters, stories and everything else in the comic world. We also have our most hated aspects of comics and comic book movies. Naturally, as comic fans love to do, we’re going to start putting some lists together for you to gnaw on. You may agree or [...]
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 [...]
A betting person would have been smart to bet that Before Watchmen was going to take the top four spots in the top ten for June. But lo and behold, Avengers vs X-Men beat it out. What comes as a surprise to me, Avengers vs X-Men took the top two spots, and Batman #11 took the third. Spider-Men makes the [...]
Before Watchmen Minutemen #1 was a great introduction to the event. It had almost everything you wanted in a Watchmen book. Now that the team is set up though, it’s time to get into the nitty gritty. And I mean that in every way possible. Darwyn Cooke’s script was very wordy in #1. It didn’t break the [...]
Another week, another Before Watchmen comic. After the major disappointment that was Nite Owl #1, Ozymandias #1 brings back the high quality that we have come to expect with this event. It’s also the first Before Watchmen issue that delivers more character centric moments than expanding on the world of Watchmen. Len Wein, the original editor for Watchmen, gives [...]
Week three into Before Watchmen, and the high quality of story telling continues. Brian Azzarello seems to be giving readers more of a character study of the Comedian instead of just delving into what happened before Watchmen. Azzarello paints a great picture of America when JKF was President in this universe. But what is more [...]
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 [...]
Like it or not, Before Watchmen has arrived. The first issue of the prequel, The Minutemen, has been getting pretty rave reviews for writer Darwyn Cooke. DC’s website have been teasing all of the series throughout the week with blurbs and teaser images, and today they unveiled the covers to four of the books coming [...]
Before Watchmen has been discussed to death. Should it be done? Why does DC need to touch on one of the seminal comic book stories of all time? But the one questions that no one has answered yet is this: is it any good? Well, if Minutemen #1 is any indication, it’s going to be great. It [...]
Entertainment Weekly released a “rough cut” of the 30 second television commercial that is going to premiere Tuesday for the much talked about Before Watchmen. The commercial will air on IFC, BBC America, and G4 as well as various social media sites. DC will release an extended 1 minute version on their website. Darwyn Cooke’s [...]

Before Watchmen‘s release date is coming closer and closer by the day.
