I have to admit, Adam Hughes art here is beautiful.

Dialog seems a bit clumsy and forced.

I only skimmed it since I'll be reading it Wednesday anyway, but I saw the childhood clock present.

...Really?

This.

Goes back to what I said about the Doc choosing to be paired up with SS. It's not ringing true to how the character is supposed to exists. In doing so, it fucks with the original too much and completely alters it's meaning.

I just read the issue. It's much worse than that.

Basically, either JMS is trolling WATCHMEN fans (and the original work itself) or he's one of the dumbest people in comics and doesn't understand WATCHMEN or these characters. Hell, it's probably both.


An abomination. But an abomination that at least has great artwork.
