While it took them a while to finally announce it, one of the worst kept secerts in DC comics has been formally annouced.
There will be seven different series in total detailing the backround of the DC comics masterpiece. They are:
- RORSCHACH (4 issues) – Writer: Brian Azzarello. Artist: Lee Bermejo
- MINUTEMEN (6 issues) – Writer/Artist: Darwyn Cooke
- COMEDIAN (6 issues) – Writer: Brian Azzarello. Artist: J.G. Jones
- DR. MANHATTAN (4 issues) – Writer: J. Michael Straczynski. Artist: Adam Hughes
- NITE OWL (4 issues) – Writer: J. Michael Straczynski. Artists: Andy and Joe Kubert
- OZYMANDIAS (6 issues) – Writer: Len Wein. Artist: Jae Lee
- SILK SPECTRE (4 issues) – Writer: Darwyn Cooke. Artist: Amanda Conner
While I think that these comics aren’t needed that are two that I’m kind of interested in, The Minutemen and Silk Spectre, mostly due to the fact that Darwyn Cooke is working on them.
The comics will be released on a weekly basis and each one will have a two page back-up story called CURSE OF THE CRIMSON CORSAIR based upon the story within a story from the original book.
Here’s the official release.
