WATCHMEN-TOO: John Bishop relaunches WATCHMEN

John says: Dr. Manhattan has finally returned from his six month mission, sending 7,777 versions of himself to explore the vast multiverse of parallel dimensions, spending only a few hours per dimension. One version of Earth interests him particularly. He christens it 'Earth-2'. The Watchmen of Earth-2 are versions of himself and his teammates, slightly different origins and powers, but remarkably familiar. A sinister force uses Dr. Manhattan's power to transport his team to Earth-2, and tricks them into battling this strange new team, but they finally join forces to fight the menace, known as Darkseid! This is the start of the massive story arc 'The Watchmen Crisis', which will spin off into the two new series 'The Watchmen League' and 'Young Watchmen'!

WATCHMEN-TOO: Eric Esquivel and Javier Hernandez relaunch THE NEW FRONTIERSMAN

Eric says:
Javi, as you may know, is a popular cartoonist from the magical land of California.  The comic book he's most famous for, El Muerto, was adapted as a film & starred That 70's Shows' Wilmer Valderrama.

Eric's website:
Jav's website:

At the end of Watchmen we discover that Rorschach mailed a copy of his journal to The New Frontiersmen, an ultra-conservative publication dedicated to exposing corruption.

Our sequel assumes that said journal was published in The New Frontiersmen, and that it was generally dismissed as the last crazy ramblings of a mentally disturbed, paranoid-schizophrenic sociopath.

Our protagonists (as pictured on the cover) are a motley crew of young (13-21 years old) anarchists, punk rock kids, and loudmouthed libertarians who read Walter Kovak's last words, and believed every word. Not just his record of events...but also his violent, subjectivist philosophy.

They are The 1%, rallied around a martyr who is equal parts Batman and Che Guevera—and whose righteous, youthful rage (and sheer numbers) make them more of a threat to Ozymandias' utopia than Rorschach ever was.

Zephan Osiris and Stevie Garvin relaunch MOTHMAN

Zephan and Stevie say:
Byron Lewis was a good man who only wanted to help save the world. So he did what any sane person does and became a costumed crime-fighter. Crafting for himself hi-tech wings which allowed him to glide, he donned the name "Mothman" and joined up with the like minded Minutemen.  Lewis became an alcoholic during the pressures of the HUAC trials and was forcibly committed. But the end is the beginning is the end...

Because YOU demanded it! From the superstar creative powerhouse Zephan Osiris and Stevie Garvin, here comes MothMan! In his own series! The DC Universe will never be the same when MothMan gets transferred to...Arkham Asylum. Who bats the Batman? You'll have to read it to find out the shocking answer.

 NOT a hoax! NOT a dream! NOT endorsed by Alan Moore! Don't miss Part 1: The Mothman of Gotham City.

Mothman was created by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons.
