Before Watchmen: Preview the First Five Pages of Silk Spectre. (But Not in my House!)

It's probably clear by now that I'm pretty much done with Before Watchmen. And I'm kind of gob-smacked that a lot of comic fan sites are saying, "Hey you guys! It's really good! Forget that grumpy Alan!" And not because it's terrible - but just because it's really, really, really bland. Have comic fans been fed so many shit sandwiches that a shit wrapped in pastry starts to look good?

Anyway, Los Angeles Times: Hero Complex has your five page preview of Silk Spectre by Darwyn Cooke and Amanda Connor, which I'm not going to post in its entirety here, but if your curiosity still isn't sated then go check it out at the link. And as much as I tease, if you're genuinely enjoying this and excited about this then that's your right and honestly more power to you! I wish I had the capacity to enjoy it. I can go and be a curmudgeonly hermit like Alan and you can enjoy your Nu Watchmen Lite in peace without my constant griping.

But I will leave you with this. Wow... These guys have really captured the tone and intelligence of Watchmen:



  1. HAHA tell us how you REALLY feel! :D

    Well I bought this one today...haven't read it yet but I'm sure I'll find SOMETHING I like about it...I usually do :p

  2. I think you're being too critical, Luke. This is exactly how I met my husband: he complimented me on my jumping, then we got married immediately. There's nothing wrong with a traditional relationship!
