The controversial, long-awaited prequels to the best-selling graphic novel of all-time are finally here: BEFORE WATCHMEN! 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 has assembled the greatest creators in the industry to further paint the world of WATCHMEN, starting with this first volume starring MINUTEMEN and SILK SPECTRE

The critically acclaimed and Eisner Award-winning creator of DC: THE NEW FRONTIER Darwyn Cooke lends his talents MINUTEMEN. As the predecessor to the Watchmen, the Minutemen were assembled to fight against a world that have 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?

SILK SPECTRE takes an introspective look at the WATCHMEN feature player's struggles with her overbearing superhero mother and her scattered path toward taking the mantle of the Silk Spectre. With gorgeous art by co-writer and illustrator Amanda Conner (POWER GIRL, The Pro), SILK SPECTRE takes a very different perspective at the world of BEFORE WATCHMEN.

It's interesting to read these background stories that take place "Before Watchmen".  However, (and this is true concerning ALL of the "Before Watchmen" graphic novels) these books have the absolute worst application of Zoom View that I have as of yet come across!  Panels are cut off, dialogue is cut off, etc.  Absolutely terrible!  These books all need to be redone with the inclusion of some quality control.  Buy them for the stories, but don't expect to be using the Zoom View feature as you read them.

Darwyn Cooke and Amanda Connor team up for a simply fantastic collection. Cooke pulls double duty on art and writing chores for the look back at The Minutemen. His art is perfect for this look at to both the 40s and 60s. His story adds depth to Watchmen and actually makes me like Watchmen better now. Then Cooke teams with Connor for an interesting Silk Spectre tale and its a fun and sad look at how she came to be. Honestly, a great read that does what its supposed to do, stand on its own and augment the previous work. A+
