Looks like we’re getting a clearer picture of what this series is going to be…
It can probably be called “After Watchmen.”
If you look carefully at the newspaper, you can see a reference to something happening in 2017, so the series takes place in 2018 or later.
Presumably, this series takes place 30+ years after the events of the original graphic novel.
We can probably safely assume that most of the characters from original graphic novel are either dead or very old, so the death annoucement in the newspaper shouldn’t be too surprising.
