Before Watchmen (Before Watchmen: Rorschach, #2)

PDF EBook by Brian Azzarello

EBook Description

I went into the Before Watchmen series with an awful lot of ambivalence. Before Watchmen (Before Watchmen: Rorschach, #2) PDF EBook On the one hand, few creators in the comics medium are as vocal as Alan Moore has traditionally been when it comes to taking liberties with his work. To say that he has been disgusted with the commodification of his spectacular 1980s graphic novel would be softening the blow. Moore famously refused recompense for the 2009 film adaptation of Watchmen, he was so disappointed with the end result. And of Before Watchmen, he has been quoted as saying, “I don’t want money. What I want is for this not to happen.”

But on the other hand, I can see the delicious appeal of the concept. Watchmen was hugely successful. It’s highly likely that it will never go out of print in our lifetimes. And it isn’t a huge leap to believe that there are more stories about the characters of the Watchmen universe to be told: The short story “Under the Hood” (included in the graphic novel) gives a tantalizing taste of what the events that precluded Watchmen were like. Purists may argue that “Under the Hood” gave all the exposition that anyone needed, but I wasn’t sure if I agreed. I wanted to know more about the days of the Minute Men, before the Silk Spectre was shacking up with Dr. Manhattan and the Comedian was dead. And I wanted to see them in comic form. I could see both sides of the issue, hence my ambivalence.
