Re: Watchmen 2?

I assume "tas" actually means "task" and there was just a typo.

Ah, I thought it was some kind of abbreviation for something. But the whole thing was so poorly written that I didn't really get half of it to be honest.

Re: Watchmen 2?

I'm generally against this, but man I'd love to see something like this by Darwyn Cooke. For any doubters that anyone could do this, read DC: New Frontier

^ Dave Gibbsons is involved in whatever the project is. I would highly suggest reading all the articles on the subject. Darwyn Cooke is one of my favourite artists and is a fine choice to head this project.
I did read the article, but didn't really understand what this sentence means:

"Indeed, some relish the tas, especially with Dave Gibbons on board."????
I relish the tas, but I don't see what Dragonlance has to do with Watchmen.

I love how Bleeding Cool always throws in that they "broke the story" in articles surrounding a follow-up to Watchmen as if people actually care.

Re: Watchmen 2?

For me, I'm not all that interested. Especially in a sequel. What are they gonna do? Go through the conspiracy of the post squid world? We sorta KNOW it will be revealed. Or at least brought up.

A preguel... maybe. But, are the early life of those characters SO interesting as compared to their DCU counterparts?

While it's obviously a cash grab, it just doesn't seem to be a particularly INTERESTING cash grab for me.

I would rather they do stuff with new characters and/or DCU characters.

Dennis...I think that is dated October 21. So it's actually an old report. The original article I posted in my first post was the updated info.

I vote they get Frank Miller to do it. Just watching the fanboy reaction would be hilarious and completely worth it.

^ That would be hilarious...Holly Terror has had almost zero buzz since it's released (his new terrorism graphic novel) I know that I lost interest once it was no longer a Batman project. I think they're relationship has soured now.
