So unless you've been living in a hole today, you've probably heard about Before Watchmen, the non-Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons Watchmen prequel, by now
Like most people of a comic reading inclination, I like Watchmen a whole lot. But I've never had any desire for a continuation of the story in any direction, prequel or sequel. It stands alone, it says exactly what Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons wanted to say, and it does the job damn well. The idea of getting more of that world, especially from different creative minds, never sat well with me. But mostly, I just wasn't interested. In fact, there are only a handful of names that would arouse my curiosity enough to make me check out anything like this.
Yeah, Darwyn Cooke and Amanda Conner are both in that handful, particularly thanks to the idea of them working together. Points to DC for generating interest in me where previously there was none.
