For the veteran readers, this story really needs no introduction, but if you haven’t heard about this 12-issue maxiseries, Doomsday Clock is one of those series to add to your “must-read” list. Debuted back in November, the creative team of writer Geoff Johns (Batman: Earth One, Sinestro Corps War), artist Gary Frank (DC Universe: Rebirth, Superman: Secret Origin) and colorist Brad Anderson (Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight, Justice League) have continued the 1986 off-beat Watchmen Story with an astonishingly new development.
Writer Alan Moore (Batman: The Killing Joke, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen) really took a checkered view of larger than life characters with the forerunner story Watchmen, especially of how these characters could impact the world around them. Through the story, we see the struggles of former vigilantes’ who sometimes are forced to blur the line between right and wrong to achieve their ends. It’s writing even felt like something plucked out of a Greek Tragedy. To its testament, Watchmen has also been quoted to have sold over 1,000,000 in comics in 2008 alone.
