A New York Times #1 Best Seller!
The controversial, long-awaited prequels to the best-selling
graphic novel of all-time are finally here: BEFORE WATCHMEN! For
over twenty years, the back stories of the now-iconic characters
from Alan Moore and Dave Gibbon''s landmark graphic novel had been
the subject of much debate and theorizing. Now, DC Comics has
assembled the greatest creators in the industry to further paint
the world of WATCHMEN, starting with this first volume starring
MINUTEMEN and SILK SPECTRE
The critically acclaimed and Eisner Award-winning creator of DC:
THE NEW FRONTIER Darwyn Cooke lends his talents MINUTEMEN. As the
predecessor to the Watchmen, the Minutemen were assembled to fight
against a world that have more and more rapidly begun to spin out
of control. Can these heroes from completely different backgrounds
and with completely different attitudes on crime come together? Or
will they fall apart before they begin?
SILK SPECTRE takes an introspective look at the WATCHMEN feature
player''s struggles with her overbearing superhero mother and her
scattered path toward taking the mantle of the Silk Spectre. With
gorgeous art by co-writer and illustrator Amanda Conner (POWER
GIRL, The Pro), SILK SPECTRE takes a very different perspective at
the world of BEFORE WATCHMEN.
