If you’ve seen Watchmen, the movie or read the comics, you’re familliar with Dr. Manhattan. A HBO show is in the works (premieres next year) and a comics sequel to the original comics, which will include other DC characters, has started last year and it’s called DOOMSDAY CLOCK.
However, I’m excited by the fact that DR MANHATTAN probably will fight SUPERMAN. THE SHOWDOWN… Without spoiling too much, I AM SURE that THE BLUE “GOD” would win. I am not familliar with the comics, but if they’re on the same track as the 2009’s film, I would say that yeah, DR MANHATTAN is the most powerfull character…
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.“
