01-FEB-2012 Today DC Comics made the big announcement that there is a series of prequel projects or WATCHMEN 2 projects based on the literary masterpiece WATCHMEN by Alan Moore; the projects coming out include contributions from the industry’s most celebrated talent like Adam Hughes, Amanda Conner, J. Michael Straczynski and Darwyn Cooke to name a few.
Debate at your leisure and Google to your heart’s content on various boards like Bleeding Cool or Newsarama. I’m not hear to voice my opinion on it to be honest. But for a few days I was thinking about making WATCHMEN PENGUINS and today seemed like the moment I was waiting for.
IF you really truly want to know my two cents, here it is: I don’t think Alan Moore is a sacred cow by any means. DC Comics owns the property and they have the right to make as much money off of it as they see fit. I do feel that WATCHMEN was fine as it was and does not need any gaps filled in, spin offs, or new chapters.
