With the first of several Before Watchmen comics hitting this week, here at SHH we’ve got a taste for you of the opening pages of the inaugural issue, courtesy of USA Today.
Written and drawn by Darwyn Cooke this series takes place during the hay day of the Minutemen prior to the forming of the Crimebusters and is the first of seven limited series. The titles are “Minutemen,” “Rorschach,” “Comedian,” “Dr. Manhattan,” “Silk Spectre,” “Nite Owl,” “Ozymandias,” and a final epilogue issue with comic heavyweights such as Brian Azzarello, Andy & Joe Kubert, Len Wein, Jai Lee, and J. Michael Straczynski. One issue of Before Watchmen will come out every week starting this week for the next 35 weeks.
