I can’t deny I’m fascinated to see how the whole thing plays out. I don’t have any interest in reading the story myself, but it will be interesting to see how it is received by readers.
It feels like quite a daring thing to do to tie current DC continuity to Watchmen - not from an editorial point of view particularly, but more for the creators, in terms of all the issues it will raise and the comparisons it will invite.
Interestingly though, there seems to be less negative heat over Doomsday Clock than there was over Before Watchmen - perhaps because those prequel series already broke the ‘taboo’ of DC continuing to exploit Watchmen as a property with new creators.
It feels as though people are more cautiously interested in this new story, rather than jumping to immediately write it off as a lot of people did with Before Watchmen.
