DC Bringing Back Watchmen

So it’s not what you think. I know what you’re thinking… Oh God… please don’t say that they’re gonna start from where they left off and for some random reason make yet another movie. Well friends, here’s the good news. No there is no news about another movie probably for good reason but DC Comics has come out to say that they are bringing back the characters of the Watchmen series under the title “Before Watchmen.” DC is releasing the new prequel series this summer as “7 interlocking and interconnected miniseries.” Each miniseries will focus on a specific character.

DC co-publishers Dan DiDio and Jim Lee said, “It’s our responsibility as publishers to find new ways to keep all of our characters relevant. After 25 years, the Watchmen are classic characters whose time has come for new stories to be told. We sought out the best writers and artists in the industry to build on the complex mythology of the original.” In response, original creator Dave Gibbons said, “I appreciate DC’s reasons for this initiative and the wish of the artists and writers involved to pay tribute to our work.”

So Watchmen fans? What do you think? Comment below.
