    Lol, If DC makes a story that shows Rorschach is alive after the events of Watchmen, a LOT of people will be pissed off at them.

    Minutemen and Ozymandias for me.

    Kinda regret not getting Dr Manhattan, I've read it turned out quite good. I'll see if I can pick up the issues during the big sale this weekend at my LCS.

    To my knowledge, the one rule DC had about the Before Watchmen series was that every book had to end before The Comedian's murder, so I don't think the epilogue will reveal Rorschach is alive.

    Moloch # 2 ends after The Comedian's murder.
    And I don't think there's an epilogue anymore.

    Speculation about Rorschach has included ideas about how if Dr. Manhattan can duplicate himself then maybe he can also duplicate others, so maybe when he zapped Rorschach he also sent a copy of him off somewhere. But though I would love to see that happen I think its highly unlikely.

    Why? I think that would ruin the whole point of Watchmen.

    I think Minutemen and Silk Spectre have been the best. Nite Owl, Rorschach, Doc Manhattan, Moloch, and Dollar Bill (since it's only a single) have been mostly solid. I've enjoyed Ozymandias and Comedian the least out of all of the books.

    The Before Watchmen comics are very interesting, highly recommended and some of the Before Watchmen are even better than Watchmen. It is best to get all of them so you don't miss out on any of the expansions and details of the Watchmen universe.

    BW: Minutemen was masterful. Just an excellent read. Silk Spectre was a fun read, with great art from Amanda Conner. I decided to trade wait the rest, especially after I got disappointed by The Comedian series.

    Just read Doctor Manhattan #1 and its decent. I feel J. Michael Straczynski nailed the inner monologue. I'm a bit confused about the back up the "curse of the Crimson Corsair". It says chapter 2 and then continued in Minute Men #3. Does anyone know the reading order for the back up story or is it even worth reading at all?
