The culmination of DC’s overarching “Rebirth” narrative has finally arrived with Doomsday Clock #1. At this point of the review, I’d normally provide a little backstory on the project. Maybe I’d allude to the magnitude of an issue like this, comment on the creative team and give an overall opinion on the issue before diving into the details. But I’m not going to. Here at Comics Bulletin we share a passionate love for comics, and everything we post is done out of that love. But more than that, we care for the individual creators and their rights. Because of that, we will not be covering Doomsday Clock, which is just the latest of DC Entertainment’s gross exploitation of Watchmen and the publisher’s blatant disregard for that comic’s creators, Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons.
Instead, I encourage you to check out “The Case Against Doomsday Clock” by my friend and colleague, Chase Magnett. It’s an impassioned, eye-opening read that’ll make you think twice before diving into this much-hyped maxi-series.
