Call the Watchmen!

I am sure most of my reading audience has heard the announcement about Watchmen if not here is a link to comicbookresources for the story Now my impressions on them

- RORSCHACH (4 issues) – Writer: Brian Azzarello. Artist: Lee Bermejo-
good team for this but not really interested

- MINUTEMEN (6 issues) – Writer/Artist: Darwyn Cooke
now this on the other hand Love Cooke and especially New Frontier perfect choice and will be the mini that is a definite buy

- COMEDIAN (6 issues) – Writer: Brian Azzarello. Artist: J.G. Jones
again good creative team but what really needs to be told?

- DR. MANHATTAN (4 issues) – Writer: J. Michael Straczynski. Artist: Adam Hughes
again repetitive and Adam Hughes? shouldn't he doing a Silk Spectre book...oh Amanda Conner never mind :)

- NITE OWL (4 issues) – Writer: J. Michael Straczynski. Artists: Andy and Joe Kubert hmmm I wonder if this is both Nite Owls hence Father and Son Kuberts this is a maybe

- OZYMANDIAS (6 issues) – Writer: Len Wein. Artist: Jae Lee
Jae Lee is a cool artist on a superhero book not so much. Might be interesting

- SILK SPECTRE (4 issues) – Writer: Darwyn Cooke. Artist: Amanda Conner

this is the other maybe cause of the great team and umm errr okay the no doubt cheesecake nature of the art

Also each each will feature a Crimson Corsair pirate back up my Len Wein and John Higgins who both were on the original

One thing I noticed so far though yes Alan Moore is calling it shameless which is his right but what does Dave Gibbons think? You think he might be okay with it supporting other projects in the past. Would like to have seen him do one of the mini
