The most critically lauded graphic novel of all time is getting a set a prequel series this summer. Whether that’s a good thing or a bad thing will ultimately lie within the pages of the series. Retcon Punch will be there with snarky remarks and unfair comparisons to the original every step of the way. This is the nerve center for reviews and write-ups of every single issue of each of the mini-series, plus anything else we write related to Watchmen.
