Watchmen Prequel Coming to DC Comics

DC Comics has officially revealed the long-rumored and controversial prequel to the classic Watchmen graphic novel.

With seven new miniseries this summer, DC Comics will tell the backstories of the heroes featured in the original book. Original Watchmen writer Alan Moore has always been opposed to efforts to expand upon the graphic novel.

Watchmen co-creator and  artist Dave Gibbons approved the project: “The original series of Watchmen is the complete story that Alan Moore and I wanted to tell. However, I appreciate DC’s reasons for this initiative and the wish of the artists and writers involved to pay tribute to our work. May these new additions have the success they desire.”
