We don’t have a topic about this? DC creates a sequel to Watchmen, for the love of Pete, and nobody created a topic about it yet?
They released the first six pages of the first issue of Doomsday Clock as a teaser, and it is a doozy:
This is… risky, to say the least. But unlike this guy, I am moderately optimistic about it based on those six pages. Yeah, it’ll never be as good as Watchmen — but that is an insanely high water mark to live up to. I mean, no big deal, let’s go ahead and write a sequel to what many consider to be the best comic series of all time? No pressure, or anything.
The only thing I think is questionable is invoking existing DC characters like Batman and Superman when the original Watchmen universe clearly had no connection at all to these characters and was a darker criticism of those superhero tropes. But I am intrigued, and I still want to see how this plays out.
That same guy also says Pax Americana was already a spiritual sequel to Watchmen, and that came out in 2014. It looks impressive, gonna check it out!
