Hello y'all;

I accidentally stumbled upon this while looking through the comicvine website. I had no idea until now that the Watchmen had a prequel story made.

Alan Moore is probably my favourite graphic novel writer hands down.

For now I'll simply ask this: What can anyone tell me about this? What do you think Alan Moore himself would think of this Minutemen series?

I have more to wonder about but I'll keep it short and sweet for now.

DC recently started making Before Watchmen books, prequels to the original Watchmen series. Before Watchmen: Minutemen chronicles the days of the Minutemen and Hollis Mason. DC making these prequels has only furthered Moore's eternal hate for the company.

Minutemen is good but there's no doubt that Moore hates me and everyone else who reads it. Frankly I can't blame him, it's a disrespectful money grab albeit a extraordinarily well written one.

Bottom line you should pick it up unless your ever going to meet Allen Moore
