- Full Description
The controversial, long-awaited prequels to the best-selling graphic novel of all-time are finally here! For over twenty years, the back stories of the now-iconic characters from Alan Moore and Dave Gibbon's landmark graphic novel had been the subject of much debate and theorizing. Now, DC Comics assembles their top creators to delve deeper into the world of Watchmen, starting with this first volume about the surprisingly sensual and confused Silk Spectre, and the first days of the retro superhero team, The Minutemen.
The critically acclaimed and Eisner Award-winning creator of DC: The New Frontier, Darwyn Cooke lends his talents to "Minutemen." As the predecessor to the Watchmen, the Minutemen were assembled to fight against a world that has more and more rapidly begun to spin out of control. Can these heroes from completely different backgrounds and with completely different attitudes on crime come together? Or will they fall apart before they begin?
Superbly drawn by Darwyn Cook and Amanda Conner. We missed this when it first appeared, so it's epecially cool to offer it for the first time at half price. It looks like a great read and I'm eagerly taking one home with me to check it out.
