Rorschach’s Journal. 2021. The Read-along of Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ Watchmen continues. A Comedian is dead in the city and Issue #2 is a reaction to that murder.
To commemorate this anniversary for the Comic of Comics, the Justice League Book Club (run by myself) and the DC History Club (run by @msgtv and @TurokSonOfStone1950) will provide a fun analysis of each issue on a weekly basis, with my contributions coming from the odd-numbered issues, while DC History looks at the even-numbered issues.
How this Read-Along works :
- Watchmen is NOT available on DC Universe Infinite. To participate in the Read-Along, you’ll need to have your own copies of Watchmen (be they the single issues or a collected edition) at the ready to read along with as we move from issue to issue, week after week.
- Discussions will be posted on a weekly basis, with each discussion focusing on one issue. If you should run late, fear not good reader, as you are welcome to chime in on a particular week’s discussion at any time. Afterall, this is a 24/7 anniversary party.
- Watchmen #2.
If you should need a copy on the fly, the issue is available at Comixology, while the collected edition of Watchmen is also available at Comixology, as well as on Hoopla.
For a dead guy, the Comedian drives a lot of the characters and action in this issue. What do you think of any of the characters reactions to the Comedian?
Molloch doesn’t look like much of a supervillian anymore. What does Molloch tell you about the heroes in Watchmen?
Comedian gives Doctor Manhattan an earful after the big blue guy watches an innocent murdered. Does the Comedian have a point?
Any darn thing else you want to talk about.
