It's time to burn, /co/
I'm doing it in the regular order
Watchmen's whole cover is a panel thing
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.
I keep putting things in Options instead of Subject
To those reading this comic just now.
Spoilers: The Question is a glorious piece of shit in this book. You will laugh at a thing he does near its close. Or beginning. Whatever.
This will be dead by noon anyways in all likely hood.
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.
Thunderbolt's rights are with the creator's estate and not DC
Seriously, this is fantastic.
Sentinels of Justice and L.A.W. were both teams composed of Charlton characters at different times
10/10 prank there, Harley. I guess
he's the murdered hero/villain needed to summon the Gentry. But where is Nix?
Now I want a Peacemaker ongoing.
Let me show you...
also the black stuff is increasing every month...
Who else noticed the comic Harley's dad was drawing was looking out back at their world?
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
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.
>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.
>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.
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.
Harley wanted to undo the curse the Gentry put on Earth-4 after he
murdered his father, the first superheroby 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.
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.
