The New York Times best-selling prequels to the best-selling graphic novel Watchmen are collected together for the first time and in a special DC hardcover Omnibus!

Takes a look at the world before the critically acclaimed graphic novel Watchmen, by some of comics' top talents, including Eisner Award-winning authors Brian Azzarello and Darwyn Cooke, multi-award winning authors Len Wein and Michael Straczynski. With art from Joe Kubert, Amanda Conner, J.G. Jones, Lee Bermejo, Adam Hughes, Jae Lee and John Higgins.

Dive deeper into the world of Watchmen by following the famous characters around in their own solo stories. Witness Rorschach's story to see how one of the most dangerous vigilantes in the comics world started down his dark path. Find out how the Vietnam War and the Kennedy assassination revolve around the Comedian. Take an introspective look at Silk Spectre as she struggles with her overbearing superhero mother and her scattered path toward taking the mantle of the Silk Spectre.

Find all of this and more when you discover what happened before Watchmen in Before Watchmen Omnibus.

Over 1000 pages. The omnibus collects all the prequel mini-series published by DC a few years ago.

Note: Watchmen itself is not included.

Anyone have any feedback on this?

I heard Doomsday Clock was okay (not part of this omnibus) but that Before Watchmen was garbage.

I know Alan Moore hates it.

Always a bit leery of stuff that has almost nothing to do with original author.

Watchmen HBO was amazing though - really went on that expecting little. Alan Moore hates adaptions and... lots of things.
So need to check out some reviews before committing.

Alan Moore hates almost everything that's been spun out of his text.

Trust me when I say that if Before: Watchmen is available at your local library, borrow and read it from there. This format is also apparently in a bad order

"This omnibus edition collects every comic in published order, meaning you get issue 1 of all the series back to back, then issue 2 and so on. "

As for the stories... Well. I liked Manhattan, Minutemen, Spectre, and Nite Owl. Ozymandias is super, super pretty but sort of average. The rest are skippable (Comedian is just a giant cliche).


(As for Doomsday Clock, loved that comic from beginning to end. And I also think the HBO Miniseries is the best extension the original story has ever had)
