There’s been a lot, and I mean a lot, of buzz around the Before Watchmen comics. Some of it good, some of it inflamatory, but no matter your opinion on the Watchmen prequels, they’re here.
Releasing tomorrow is the first issue of Darwyn Cooke‘s Minutemen, an almost prequel-prequel as it explores the history of the Watchmen’s precursors. USA Today has kindly offered an exclusive five-page preview,
Not surprising, the artwork looks amazing! Did you expect any less from Cooke? His style is a perfect match to explore the history of the 40s era heroes. Also love the nice visual illusion to Dr. Manhattan.
Of all the Before Watchmen titles, this is the one I’m most excited for. Who doesn’t love retro heroes? And of all the Watchmen characters, the Minuteman make the most sense to get their own miniseries. USA Today also includes a short interview with Cooke which is a great read into how he approached Minutemen.
What did you think of the preview? Will you be picking up Minutemen, or any of the Before Watchmen titles?
