Before Watchmen: Ozymandias #5 Review

Like almost all comic series, Before Watchmen has had its hits and misses. Ozymandias has typically fallen in the middle, with excellent art from Jae Lee, but an overly cautious story from Len Wein that too often fails to break new ground, insisting on showing us events that Alan Moore was content to reference in passing. While issue five continues that pattern […]

Before Watchmen: Silk Spectre #4 Review

One of two Before Watchmen books released this week, Silk Spectre has been among the strongest of the BW series and is the first to reach its conclusion.

Before Watchmen: Silk Spectre #3 Review

What started out as an Archie story set against the backdrop of the Watchmen universe is slowly aligning itself more and more with tone of its parent series, and the transition is fascinating. Here’s the official description of Silk Spectre #3 from DC: “San Francisco, baby. The […]

Before Watchmen: Silk Spectre #2 Review

At first, Laurie thinks life is “hakuna matata” in Before Watchmen: Silk Spectre #2. But unlike the last issue, superheroics do come into play. Here’s DC‘s official description: “I’ve just come to a horrible realization…My mom would be really proud of me right now.” Plus, a new CRIMSON CORSAIR backup feature from writer LEN WEIN and artist […]
