Marvel- creator and legend Stan Lee has passed away today.
He is the creator of, among others, such characters as X-Men, The Hulk, Black Panther, Doctor Strange and Spider-Man.
He has starred in a lot of Marvel’s movie adaptation in short cameos. You can see all of these above. This is really sad news.
Rest in peace, dear Stan.
The 12 issues comic book series assembles the DCU – the watchmen with the Justice League. The first issue was released on November, 22, and will span over a period of a year, with new issues every month.
Geoff Johns, one of the creators – has prior to the release, stated that Doomsday Clock is a sequel to The Watchmen – a comicbook series containing 12 parts and published by DC Comics from September, 1986 to October 1987 and turned into a critical acclaimed movie in 2009.
Yesterday during DC Comic’s Meet The Publishers panel at New York Comic Con 2017, it was revealed that the upcoming Doomsday Clock comic event which features DC Universe against the Watchmen, is a sequel to 1987’s 12 issues long Watchmen comics.
Personally, I cannot wait to see Dr Manhattan and how Superman would handle him. It’s probably one of the few comic series that I’ll direct my attention to. I am HYPED, are you?
Doomsday Clock #1 hits shelves November 22, 2017 and the solicitation for the first issue offers only this cryptic description: “You are not prepared for what lies ahead within these pages, good readers.“
