    Watchmen is a bit of a sacred cow, but I must admit that some of this looks great, especially the Darwyn Cooke Minute Men and the Azzarello Rorschach.

    I wonder if Straczynski will note how his issues will sell way more than the original run. Just sayin’.

    Scott, I don’t think Moore was referring to the Charlton characters as the “ideas” but rather the story itself.

    Moore gave up any rights to complain after ‘Neonomicon’. Bring on Before Watchmen!

    I said in a previous comment that DCs new mark is high maintenance. All those renderings are time consuming and expensive to produce. But the one for Watchmen is already done:

    So why wasn’t it applied here… because it’s a prequel? A design company like Landor can only make recommendations. It’s up to DC marketing to make sure it’s implemented. That drop of blood on yellow has become iconic… and not making the effort to apply it here seems like a missed opportunity.

Make It Good.
