I like JMS a lot as a writer. If I can afford to I'll be picking up his part of the series.
...won't do anything other than disappoint. Bad idea.
Alan Moore predicted this.
"Until the Lion writes his own story, the tale of the hunt will always glorify the hunter." - African proverbs
BEBOP--"Roland = pinnacle of objectivity"
and "who watches the Watchmen?" does not mean "who do you trust?"
It means, when it comes to power it is not about trust, it is about accountability
This is a cash grab by the publishers and pandering to the ego of the the creators.
Also comparing Watchmen to Superman is facile. Superman was created as a character for serial story telling. Watchmen was written with a beginning middle and end. as self contained.
JMS: you sir are a hack

From taking shots at the current writer for Spider-Man, making a huge fuss over Superman: Grounded then abandoning it midway to then his Wonder Woman fiasco JMS has made sure he'll never see a dime from me and proved he's a hypocritical so and so.
You can have your ball back JMS I don't want it and I'm heading home

Best of luck to the teams working on it, the story itself was not only self-contained but had enough back story, so further exploration just doesn't interest me.

I agree with some comments made here that a prequel doesn't make any sense at all. We know everything about the characters already. Nite-Owl wrote his book, Dr. Manhatten's story is brilliantly told in the book. I really can't find any reason, other than making money, to explore into known territory again.
