. . . things might have been different.
Because that whole “Password incomplete: would you like to add rider?” panel has bugged me for years. Seriously – what computer allows you to enter a password and then says “Oooooh, so close – go on, have another go, you’re almost right!”
Yep, they’re making them and you can see a bunch of photos here.
The Comedian doesn’t look bad, but the Marionette? That waist looks way too thin:
And there’s something wrong about the Dr Manhattan figure . . . something missing . . .
Oh wait, I know what it is:
There you go, Doc.
And, just because this instantly popped into my head when I saw the article:
Indeed, Rorschach, indeed . . .
New DC December solicitations are out and the two covers of Doomsday Clock #2 are revealed:
I’m not recognising the costume on the left – the black and white socks/leggings, the black corset with the red buttons and frilled collar. The only things that’s springing to mind is the Harlequin but I’m not convinced. The Nostalgia bottles and case in the bag labelled ….NITE aren’t clues either.
But on the left, his hand resting on Lex’s right shoulder? That’s clearly the armband of Ozymandias and as the solicitation says
DC and Watchmen characters collide at last!
it seems likely that at least one other Watchmen character besides Dr Manhattan is making their way to the DCU. Which makes me wonder if this bit of the solicitation:
And killer clowns trek through Gotham seeking a madman.
is referring to Rorschach – is he the madman?
I step away from the internet for a few days and what happens? DC release the first covers for the forthcoming Doomsday Clock series where Superman goes up against Dr Manhattan:
Somewhere along the line, I’d thought this was going to be a six issue series so was pleasantly surprised to note the cover saying “1 of 12”
All trepidation around mixing Watchmen with the DCU aside, that looks like a really nice piece of work from series artist Gary Frank.
