I’m finally getting around to reading “Doomsday Clock”. Or, at least the issues I can find on this service. I have read the first 2 issues, and so far I’ll admit…so far, so good. Great atmosphere for back when they were on the Watchmen’s Earth, a similar but different enough atmosphere for the DC Earth. I’m interested in the new Watchmen characters, Mime and Marionette. While I do have questions, I’ll save most of them and just focus on one question for right now.
Due to the fact that the last issue is about to release, and that it has taken longer to publish than anticipated, I feel like I should ask. Will “Doomsday Clock” ultimately have any real long-lasting impact on the DC Universe once the last issue is released? I know it has been delayed multiple times, and while the original plan was to have the rest of the DC Universe caught up by the time “Doomsday Clock” was finished, that clearly doesn’t seem like the case.
So, with so many ongoing series moving on with their own stories, will the aftermath of this story force the rest of the DC Universe to finally address the fact that this story exists and is canon? Or once the last issue is released, will the ideas/themes/answers that “Doomsday Clock” reveals about the DC Universe be more relevant than the actual literal events that transpired?
