Before Watchmen: 5-Page Preview of Brian Azzarello and JG Jones’ ‘Comedian’

- 06-19-12Comics Posted by Sarah Moran

DC has been releasing these weekly previews to get us amped and excited and more likely to go pick up the first issue of their Before Watchmen series. Has it been working on you? I’ve so far bought both Minuteman and Silk Spectre, but those were the two titles I was already interested in. Has the preview of Comedian by Brian Azzarello and J.G. Jones swayed me to add it to my pull?

Well, I am intrigued by the Kennedy connections and the implication the Comedian might have played a part in the famous Marilyn Monroe’s tragic demise. Especially when I think about years later, in Watchmen, it’s implied the Comedian took out J.F.K. Maybe him offing Kennedy’s girlfriend caused a row? Who knows! But I guess I’ll have to read this one too if I want to find out.
