“Well, it seems to be happening a lot sooner than I thought. I understand now that this [is] considered a pet project of Dan DiDio, SVP-Executive Editor. That he is determined to impress new bosses by building on DC’s biggest selling comic book of all time with multiple prequel comic miniseries and spinoff ongoing projects.”
I understand that both Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons have to be offered first refusal before any of these titles could be published. But if they don’t want to work on them themselves (and Alan Moore is never going to agree), DiDio has been sounding out people who might be willing to take on the task.

While some creators are reticent, the argument goes if there are a number of Watchmen spinoff projects, any blame or shame can be spread on many shoulders.

Dammit. Can't they just leave well enough alone? Not every popular THING has to be spun-off, sequelized, robbed of all joy, and eventually made dead in the minds of everyone who loved it to begin with. Just let Watchmen be Watchmen, period. It is a cohesive whole, and requires nothing else.

Y'know, I'm willing to give a main series the benefit of the doubt, even though it'll no doubt piss all over the original. But I'm kind of shocked at the comic industry's continued willingness to prop up evens on ten different miniseries.

This is how you lose readers.


I've read a lot of comics in my time, and I think I've read exactly one 'event' spin-off that was any good. (It was Civil War: Front Line, and then Marvel decided to run the Front Line idea into the ground and kill any goodwill I had for the characters.) The rest were godawful.

Y'know why people think Watchmen and The Dark Knight Returns were cool? They were self-contained tightly-written stories, not sprawling mega-events.

After the movie came out, sales of the comic itself skyrocketed. It's not the best-selling graphic novel of all time. This rumor primarily mentions a new comic series, with a little tidbit at the end about a possible sequel.

I do believe that I would go to at least one comic convention for the sole purpose of saying, in person, to whomever would agree to write this thing: "[Sir|Madam], you are a fucking tool."

It wouldn't matter who they were, even if they were my favorite writer of the moment, even if they were a freakish amalgamation of all my favorite writers, even if they cured cancer, or had wrecked their hands pulling Haitian children out of earthquake rubble, even if Jack Kirby Himself spontaneously rose from the grave to illustrate it... even if, even if Dave Gibbons simply decided to write as well as draw his co-creation, I would have no real choice but to calmly inform them that, regardless of whatever they had done, were doing, or would ever do for the comics field, they were, henceforth and irretrievably, a fucking tool.

Unless Moore himself were doing it, in which case I would hold out hope against all odds, yea verily unto the end of all things, that oddman was right.

If I were Moore, I'd say yes and then kill off all the characters immediately. In the past. Introduce a whole bunch of new characters that were never referred to anywhere in the original Watchmen that are thinly veiled versions of the DC editorial staff. Ensure that they all suffer dreadful fates. Keep saying "trust me, I know where I'm going with this," but just keep making it make the events of the "future" Watchmen story more and more impossible. When removed from the title, swear that I had a plan and that now DC has "ruined" it.

I think we all know that Watchmen spin offs are going to be judged pretty harshly, no matter what they're actually like, because there's no way they can add anything substantive to the original story. DC is probably hoping for a series or two that read enough like the original to capture some of that enormous trade audience, but the most likely result is a few graphic novels that come out with a splash, sink quickly, and are soon forgotten. This sort of thing doesn't usually work, even when you've got the original author doing prequels, like Asimov's Prelude To Foundation or Lucas and his Star Wars series.

The Watchmen Return

Script: Alan Moore
Art/Letters: Dave Gibbons

Page 1

Int. DC Offices:

Panel 1, 1/3rd height, full width frame.
Dan Didio sits at his desk, sipping Starbucks with his feet up on the desktop with a gaudy bluetooth headset in his ear.

Didio: Baby baby, listen. Forget the movie! Nobody cares about that. They love the BOOK, baby! I'm telling you, a prequel and a sequel would be a huge hit. Money in the bank, and you can take that to the bank. Bank on it.

Panel 2:
Rorschach enters frame from bottom left corner, we see over his shoulder from behind as Didio registers his presence with shock.

Didio: What the? Who the fuck are you? What are you doing in my office? What are you, some crazy fan? SECURITY! Get this guy the fuck out of here!

Panel 3:
c/u roraschach's masked face.

Rorscach:...

Page 2
Full page panel

Quickly, Rorschach reaches across the desk and bends one of Didio's fingers back until it breaks.

Didio: AWAUGGGHHHH!!!

Really go nuts on the lettering here, Dave. Make it look like a whiny puff is crying and screaming at the same time. Perhaps a stream of tears flying from his eyes. He should be in excruciating pain.

--------pages not reproduced------------

Page 21
full page panel

Didio, still tied to the desk with his feet and hands roped together stuck in the air and his pants still off, is barely conscious, but awake enough to cry.

Didio: awugh... for god's... huff... for god's sake. *haugh* please stop. I'm begging you.

Rorschach brandishes a tarnished but sharp implement (use your imagination, here, Dave) he calls The Screaminator.

--------pages not reproduced------------

Page 67

full page panel, same angle and arrangement as previous page

Didio: WHY IS THIS STILL GOING ON? MAKE IT STOP!

No way would Alan Moore do a panel description that was only 2 lines long. To do a true Moore script pastiche you need to spend at least a page on rambling pre-amble, then minutely describe the wallpaper in the office or something.

out of curiosity, was a contract like this why Miller wrote the Dark Knight sequel and made it this cartoony piece of garbage?

I hated DK2 when it came out, but after repeated reads it's really grown on me -- there's a certain batshit-insane (pun intended) internal logic to it, and when you start looking at it as Miller trying to make a satirical "supercomic" based on current (and presumably future) trends, it's actually kind of engaging.



Honestly, between a fifth Hitchhiker's book and flying Daleks, I've pretty much thrown in the towel on hoping for anything to remain sacrosanct. My best hope now is that they go full-bore with it.

Stood in firelight, sweltering in my Tommy Hilfiger designer clothing. Bloodstain on chest like map of violent new continent, requiring me to consider purchase of ironically cool "Hubba Bubba" T-shirt, only $14.99 at Urban Outfitters. Felt cleansed, as though well-scrubbed with quality soap from makers of Irish Spring. Felt dark planet turn under my feet and knew what cats know that makes them scream like babies in night: the cold, refreshing taste of Coca-Cola. Looked at sky through smoke heavy with human fat; realized nothing would go down better at that moment than a triple beef sandwich from Arby's. The cold, suffocating dark goes on forever and we are alone, except for the comforting and sensible voices presenting fair and balanced opinions on the FOX News channel. Live our lives, lacking anything better to do except maybe participate in the all-night Bowlarama at Ed's Bowl-A-Thon, a satisfying way to engage in exercise and be the socially active, engaging person that Bud Lite commercials have always assured me I could be.

I'm curious what writers would sign onto this and risk the wrath of Alan Moore. My guess is that no one from the Brit wave (Gaiman, Morrison, Ellis, etc) would touch it. Still, DC would need prestige writers for it to be taken seriously.

No matter who does it, though, DC will make bank in the same way the Star Wars prequels will (that is, hand over fist).

I, for one, would definitely read a series of one-shots done by distinctive creators in a "What if...?" manner. Paul Pope? Mike Allred? Bryan Lee O'Malley? Michael Kupperman?Peter Bagge? It could be brilliant.

The 'Making Of' is the only part people would buy it for.

Wildstorm (later DC), already kind of did that with America's Best Comics, and the result was a number of different series, including LoEG. A lot of good comics came out of that imprint. It would be nice if Moore did something like it again, but who knows what he's into creatively these days.

Is there some seedy corner in Atlantic City where I can bet on this not happening? Really, let's think this one through: Watchmen became the best-selling book in DC history because, by the time the movie came out, it had a base of fiercely loyal and vocal fans. Those same fans are going to rake any new Watchmen comic over the coals, likely complaining without even reading it, scaring away a lot of the new audience that this new project would hope to attract.

DiDio might not be the smartest businessman in the world, but this would be the corporate equivalent of eating a beer bottle because the inside tastes like lager. It's just not going to happen.

People have been joking about this for a long time.

Plus of course random Liefeld jokes and the Saturday morning cartoon video. You'd have to be a serious moron to even be tempted to touch this with a 10-foot pole since everyone knows what a bad idea this is. So yeah, I guess DiDio is trying to catch up with Joe Quesada in terms of stupendously bad comic book moves.
