DAMN this book is good!!! If Mister Miracle was the new DC classic from last year, this time we have Doomsday Clock! Geoff Johns's writing has been on point since issue #1! The man is a genius and he knows everything about the DC universe! Hes a DC treasure that i wish will take a looong time before retiring.
Also, ive been feeling bummed out with the delays but im glad Gary Frank is having more

I mean, Geoff knows how to write a lot of characters. From smaller ones to bigger ones like Hal Jordan and Superman. Every writer struggles with at least one character. Maybe the New Gods are difficult to him. i dont know

Darkseid24 - Mar 6, 2019

Johns Can’t write the villains. He messed up Darkseid& wrote Scarecrow totally out of character in Blackest Night too. He wrote him as the opposite of who he is. Johns mainly canjust write the heroes. And I think he doesn’t change much with Watchmen because it’s such an iconic story. I’m not hyped for the 3 Joker Story.

I feel like everything happening here is important, but it still feels kind of slow... and fast (not in a good way) at the same time. I dont know.

Loved this issue. Dr. Manhattan finally is more in the center of the story& him fighting the league was satisfying to watch. He’s just really cool. I hope DC doesn’t kill him at the end. Can’t find anything negative here. Story& art are great& have to say Johns is doing a pretty great job writing Watchmen characters.
