Product description

A New York Times Best Seller! The controversial, long-awaited prequels to the best-selling graphic novel of all-time are finally here: Before Watchmen! For over twenty years, the back stories of the now iconic characters from Alan Moore and Dave Gibbon's landmark graphic novel have remained a mystery - until now! Discover what happened before Watchmen as writer J. Michael Straczynski is joined by Andy Kubert and the legendary Joe Kubert to take flight with the gadget-savvy vigilante known as Nite Owl! And JMS teams with fan-favorite artist Adam Hughes on the all-powerful super-man Dr. Manhattan! For Dr. Manhattan, past, present, and future are one and the same. But as he observes the events of his life, do they remain the same? Or are they changed? The very fact of his existence may have altered the nature of what will or will not be...It collects Before Watchmen: Nite Owl numbered 1-4 and Before Watchmen: Dr. Manhattan numbered 1-4.

Review quote

"Signing up two generations' worth of legendary artists [Joe and Andy Kubert] is a wise move for DC Entertainment."--"NY Daily News""J. Michael Straczynski's writing is crisp and keeps the story moving -- he's clearly not trying to "rewrite" the original Moore material, but instead builds off on it."--"Mtv Geek"
