Before Watchmen Announced

One of the big open secrets of comics was officially announced by DC Comics. Before Watchmen, a 7 issue mini-series of the characters and an epilogue wrapup of the backup strip in the mini-series featuring Crimson Corsair. Bleeding Cool compares their coverage of this story to the facts announced today.
I was opposed to this project when I first heard about it, but looking at the covers, and Darwyn Cooke writing and drawing the Minutemen mini-series…I don’t know, looks awful enticing. Alan Moore is opposed to the project, but Dave Gibbons has given his okay. And word is that Warner Bros gave the word for DC to exploit some of their properties more, especially Watchmen. Interesting to see the reaction to this.
