A Mad Men/Watchmen mash-up. File under: ideas I wish I had had.

DC Launching WATCHMEN Prequel Series Without Alan Moore
DC Comics have announced that they will launch a new, seven issue prequel series to Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ classic Watchmen which each issue focused on a pre-Watchmen adventure by one of the key characters. Rorschach, Comedian, Dr. Manhattan, Nite Owl, Ozymandias, Silk Spectre and The Minutemen will each receive their own issue with writing duties to be handled by Darwyn Cooke, J. Michael Straczynski, Brian Azzarello, Adam Hughes, Andy Kubert and Joe Kubert.  Note who is not on that list. While original Watchmen artist Dave Gibbons has apparently given his blessing to the project notoriously cranky Alan Moore has not and it doesn’t take a genius to guess what Moore’s likely response will be.
I’m having major mixed feelings about this.

'Tis now the very witching time of night, 
When churchyards yawn and hell itself breathes out 
Contagion to this world: now could I drink hot blood, 
And do such bitter business as the day 
Would quake to look on

[Shakespeare, Hamlet III.2.388-392]

I sent a message to Dr Manhattan - away on holiday on Pandora - to tell him that he’s welcome to teleport himself to my private screening of Watchmen Director’s Cut tonight - but only if he promises to wear some clothes.

(It only seems fair to invite him round for some blu-ray, right?)
