The veil is slowly lifting on DC Comics’ upcoming Doomsday Clock event as DC Comics finally confirmed that the upcoming story would serve a sequel to Alan Moore and Dave Gibbon’s Watchmen.
During today’s DC Comic’s Meet The Publishers panel at New York Comic Con 2017, co-publishers Dan Dido and Jim Lee revealed that the meeting between the characters of the DC Universe and the Watchmen would be a sequel to the groundbreaking 1987 graphic novel. The story is headed and written by DC’s chief creative officer Geoff Johns and illustrated by penciler Gary Frank with colorist Brad Anderson.

Dido also confirmed to fans at NYCC that the story will be a self-contained 12-part story, instead of being a sprawling multi-issued crossover that connects with other DC series and spin-offs. Soon readers will have all of their questions answered that have long since lingered since the teasing of Dr. Manhattan’s arrival in the DC Universe in DC Rebirth #1 last year and later on in the Batman/Flash four-issue crossover, The Button.

5 Potential Marvel TV Shows To Rival HBO’s ‘Watchmen’
With news breaking that Damon Lindelof, the co-creator of both Lost and The Leftovers, is in talks to develop a Watchmen show for HBO, Marvel needs a new TV hit. Don’t get me wrong, I know Agents of Shield still has a huge following, but I stopped watching the Netflix shows during the second season of Daredevil. And FX’s Legion was just… okay for me. It’s not that I don’t love Luke Cage and Jessica Jones, but it’s not fair to put lower-tier characters like them in competition with a juggernaut like Watchmen.
HBO was clearly taking notes when Netflix started releasing their shows, so this seems like a great moment for Marvel to take some notes on their competition. If DC is going to churn out a Watchmen series, then Marvel needs to dig deep into their libraries to find stories worthy of being brought to the silver screen.
So hit Next to find out about five properties Marvel should consider adapting if they want to match HBO’s Watchmen.
