Are you doing this forwards or backwards?

Whatever you say, Adam.

Looks like forwards in terms of how it'll be published in print.

So the flag flapping in the wind becomes the cover in:

>>67346521

Cool.

>>67346552
Watchmen's whole cover is a panel thing
>>
>>67346549
why is ant-man killing the president
>>
>>
>>67346534
It doesn't really matter. It's a collection of various scenes from a huge political superhero epic. The parts that interested Adam anyway.

The big joke is that this is how Manhattan saw Watchmen happening. It's loaded with asides and distractions. If you want to fully replicate the experience, you need only flit between any part of the book you wish. The past and the future are places you can travel to with the turn of a page. The page is a door.

Looking at this cover is really goddamn intense. I looked at it for more than a minute and I could feel myself sweating.

I think this might be some of the best work Quitely's ever done. I wouldn't say it's worth the wait exactly, because (c'mon) 4 years. But it's gorgeous all the same.

Ah, thanks for puntualizing that.
It's so simple and clearly stated in the comic itself, yet so difficult to grasp at a first read.

And my God, this is really the kind of book you point at when you want to defend comics as a medium. Quitely does shit that can be done only with art and panels. It's simply astonishing.

>>67346855
Kind of weird to see Ted wearing Garrett's costume.
>>
>>67346712
IT'S NOT AN ALTERNATE REALITY
>>
>>67346914
Wait.

Why the fuck is Supergirl in the "created by section"

Who's Supergirl-4? (Superman-4 we know is Captain Atom, and Batman-4 is probably Ted).
>>
>>67346900
>The twisted mask is an 8

Shit. Didn't see that on my first reading.

>>67346793

>>
>>67346986
I was gonna say sex clone, but that works.
>>
So the 8 is supposed to make you think of infinity right?
>>
So, the Pax were the Gentry, right? And Captain Atom was under their influence because of the comics?
>>
>>67346914
Weird that this says it's 3.99 when we know it's 4.99 and all the others have said 4.99...
>>
>>67347006
And the mask at the end is supposed to show you that Infinity is broken.

>>67347112
No, I think he's going to the House of Heroes.
>>
>>67347116
Adam mentions that he hears someone knocking

Every time that's happened, a Gentry agent steps in: Nix, Blockbuster, and Menta.

Then as he kills the scientists, Steel says that he crawled out of the hole they tossed Adam down
>>
Question. I haven't read any of The Question comics. Is he usually this great?
>>67347084
Yes, just a joke because this has Watchmen overtones and Rorschach says "hurm" a lot.
>>
>>67347163
>Question. I haven't read any of The Question comics. Is he usually this great?
Yes, ignoring the new 52 version

Original by Ditko, O'neil, Rucka
>>
>>67346847
Kind of reminds me of Morrison's St Swithin's Day.
>>
Is President Harley an analogue and/or preexisting character?
>>
>>67347138
Just to keep things straight in my head. He's the guy with metal arms, that we see in the case in the beginning, and kills Nora?
>>
>>67346876
That's a little disappointing.

I get it. Jumbled, fragmented information coming out of the event horizon in beautiful sequencing.

But it still feels a bit lazy as we all ready saw this in Return of Bruce Wayne. This moment was hyped as hell is what I'm saying.
>>
>>67347188
He's the son of a preexisting character, Yellowjacket (who was published by Charlton)

http://pdsh.wikia.com/wiki/Yellowjacket
>>
>>67347204
I feel a bit that way.
But,to be fair, in what other way could 420 panels fit in a single page?
It's still a spectacular composition.
>>
>>67347163
He's more sincere in his comics. Here, it's clear that the whole crazed conspiracy theory pulp adventurer is an act.
>>
>>67347163
It doesn't have Watchmen overtones. It is a blatant Watchmen pastiche.
>>
>>67347231
>Here, it's clear that the whole crazed conspiracy theory pulp adventurer is an act.

It seems like it's an act at first and then he starts becoming it.
>>
>>67347191
I think that might be a different dude, since Steel only has one artificial limb.

The Soldier and the Hunchback.
>>
I need a fucking 300 level college class
>>
>>67347252
Well the Question says "The hunchback becomes the soldier". I thought it was just Sarge Steel in his early form or something.
>>
I don't know if I can/should sleep now
>>
So I'm guessing Harley's hoping to get himself resurrected to foil the Gentry.
>>
>>67347191
>Nora
Fuck, Who was Nora?
>>
>>67347204
>But it still feels a bit lazy as we all ready saw this in Return of Bruce Wayne.

Really? I never got the impression Return of Bruce Wayne had the same effect as this issue. Reuse of technique doesn't mean much to me as much as the execution of it.
>>
>>67346558
>that face

So Peacemaker's Earth 4's Batman instead of Beetle?
>>
>>67347325
Nora O'Rourke is from the Peacemaker comics.
>>
>>67347342
Not everything is interchangeable
>>
>>67346646
I guess those were the 4 scientists that Vic mentioned to Beetle. Emphasis on were.
>>
>>67347342
My first thought when seeing that panel was of Batman Inc.
>>
>>67347349
Yeah, but Batman created by Bob Kane was in the credits.

As was Supergirl.
>>
>>67347329
Last issue had Ancestor Box Batman reviewing Bruce's life in a rain of panels as he fights the Justice League.
>>
>>67346801
>Sentinels of Justice and L.A.W. were both teams composed of Charlton characters at different times

Yeah specifically Sentinels was done by AC Comics when they assumed they were gonna get the Charlton rights and L.A.W. was done I think in 2000 at DC.
>>
>>67346801
>Reminder of where and when I fist saw the pattern
>>67346900
Holy fuck reading it here in /co/ is making this shit much easier.
>>
>>67347385
Yeah, I know about that. Like I said it's all about the effect. It seemed much stronger here to me than the final issue of Return of Bruce Wayne. And I know Morrison's done earlier attempts in Final Crisis and Seven Soldiers: Mister Miracle.
>>
>>67346801
>Broken world

Lord Broken confirmed for the Gentry responsible for this bedlam.

With that mystery solved: Who will attack Thunderworld?

Intellectron or Hellmachine?!
>>
out of all of the multiversity comics, I was most hyped for Pax Americana, but now I really don't understand it.

But now, I'm more hyped for Mastermen, hopefully it'll be good.
>>
>>67347428
>67347428
Hellmachine, remember that Sivana creates a Technologic Rock of Eternity
>>
>>67347428
I'm guessing Hellmachine, the Mastermen logo looks to much like Intellectron
>>
>>67347431
What don't you get? It's a story told from the perspective of Captain Adam. It's why you get spreads of the past, present, and future happening simultaneously. 4D vision is go!
>>
>>67347428
Yeah and the cover has a peace sign broken in half.

>>67347495
Harley wanted to undo the curse the Gentry put on Earth-4 after he murdered his father, the first superhero by dying and then getting brought back by Adam

Sergeant Steel, a Gentry agent, aimed to sabotage the plan by having the scientists murder or neutralize Adam with a black hole so he couldn't bring back Harley. The deaths of these scientists are what the Question is investigating.

Though Adam was off the board, Peacemaker goes ahead with the assassination because Algorithm 8 has worked out flawlessly since then. His last action in the comic proper implies that he knows who the Sergeant really is and that the good guys might still have a shot at taking the Gentry down.

Yeah, no problem.

I didn't get it at first either. Initially, I believed he was aiming at me, Eden, or Adam.

Then Steel punched him and it all made sense.

>>
>>67347497

source faggot
>>
>>67347618
Nora knew about the Algorithm. She was as dangerous as her beau to the Gentry's plans. Investigating her murder clues the Question in on both the equation and the scheme. Both of which he alludes to during his conversation with Blue Beetle.

Blue Beetle was pursuing the Question because Vic is a murderous lunatic. The latter also implies that Ted is working with the bad guys now and he knows it.
