DC Comics announced today that it is moving forward with a prequel — well, eight prequels to be exact — to Watchmen, the greatest comics story ever told. The project will be called Before Watchmen, and it will consist of individual miniseries starring each of the seven members of the team, and a one-shot wrap-up called…er, Before Watchmen: Epilogue. (Even though what comes after Before Watchmen should be Watchmen, right?) The idea of a prequel with its own epilogue… um, certainly thinking outside the creative box.
All together: “NNNNNOOOOOOOO!!!!!”
