watchmen getting a prequel series

This will be extremely EXCITING news for many…and absolutely HORRIFIC news for others…

We've just learned that DC Comics has plans to publish seven "comic-book mini-series," which will "continue the stories of the adventurers introduced in Watchmen, which was written by Alan Moore and illustrated by Dave Gibbons."

The prequel series is being referred to as Before Watchmen, and it is scheduled to start up this summer.

This is a VERY controversial move by DC, because original Watchmen writer Alan Moore will not be involved, and he's referring to these prequel comics as "completely shameless."

Here's what Moore had to say about it:

"I tend to take this latest development as a kind of eager confirmation that they are still apparently dependent on ideas that I had 25 years ago."

And here's what DC Entertainment co-publishers Dan DiDio and Jim Lee had to say about it:

"It’s our responsibility as publishers to find new ways to keep all of our characters relevant. After 25 years the Watchmen are classic characters whose time has come for new stories to be told."

What do U think? Should DC leave Watchmen alone because it's a classic? Or do U think they're making the right move by exploring that universe further???
