The boys are back in town! New York Times bestselling writer Geoff Johns has just confirmed that the anxiously awaited Watchmen will make their triumphant return to the DC Universe this November. After the crossover, “The Button,” came to a close in Flash #22 on Wednesday, May 17, 2017, the mystery will continue in Doomsday Clock led by Johns and legendary artists Gary Frank and Brad Anderson.
“It’s time. Last year, the DC Universe confronted the legacy of Watchmen in Rebirth the way Watchmen confronted the legacy of superhero comics three decades ago. Thematically, and metaphorically, there was no better choice than to use Dr. Manhattan. If you’re going to have a conflict between optimism and pessimism, a battle between the very forces of hope and despair, you need to have someone who personifies the cynicism that has leaked into our hearts and also has the ability to affect the entire DCU. It’s all paying off this November with Doomsday Clock,” said Johns.
“Doomsday Clock is a story for fans who love the DC Universe and Watchmen and want to see what a master of this genre creates when he puts them together. As for my artistic approach to the series, each panel is extremely detailed and I am constantly thinking through the position of every single element,” added Frank.
