A detailed and SPOILER-FREE Review

The issue debates the forces of faith and disbelief. I haven't seen a world brimmed with so much darkness since Moore's Watchmen. This isn't what DC stands for BUT that's what Johns WANTS us to see. His thesis in this issue is that superheroes are there to breathe through that darkness, that is, to inspire; and it's up to us whether to have faith in th more

Humm... Interesting. Its kinda funny though, due to this issue some are quite scared about the Final issue. I Hope Geoff johns delivers a proper conclusion.

Like I said in my review:" I have faith that Johns will deliver in issue 12 and if he doesn't, well, read the quote by Theodore Roosevelt, the one that appears at the end of issue 3 of Doomsday Clock. Whatever happens in issue 12 Johns can go to the grave being the one writer to have dared. That's his ace in the hole." Issue 12 is slated for this Nov. We'll just have to wait and see.

For 10 issues straight, we've been asking many questions about the series, its plot, potential endgoal and impact on DC Comics. How is it all connected, what motivate the main cast? There's still left to wonder, but let me tell you - #11 answers a lot. More than expected, in fact, showing us how intricate, detailed and interconnected its story is, really. It's not just a prelude to the finale, it' more

Hi, Ni.. hmmm... interesting. Let me ask you, Did you able to follow the story? That also another complaint which some people have that it's kinda uneven/hard to follow. And, the funny thing is, Some are worried about the conclusion. I hope that Geoff johns delivers.

Nihilist - Sep 6, 2019

If you know Watchmen, and have the basic understanding of DC's universe, you should be fine. It's still a multilayered comic, with plenty of parallel arcs and themes going on, but so far, it's been pretty competently explained, I think.

"Item #12"

Today's World is a terrible place to live in. We've got hurricanes, greedy politicians, neonazis and people generally being d*cks to each other.
But among this wide river of s*it, there has been one bright spot for some time now, one consistently good thing: Doomsday Clock. And the penultimate issue is no different.

Issue #11 might not have much to offer in te more

No, I wasn't underwhelmed. At first, I was half-expecting some big fight between Diana and Adam, but what I got was satisfying just the same. Seeing how Luthor was piecing all of it together and learning just how crazy Ozzy is was really good. And it all set the perfect stage for the finale. I never felt the book had pacing problems, its release schedule, sure, but the book itself, no. It's very story-driven and it takes its time telling it, but I was never bored.

Arslan are you a bot? Or did you just paste and copy this question to everyone who reviewed this book? You work at Marvel?

Well, fuck. (Spoilers)

Even at its crescendo, Doomsday Clock leaves us yet again with more questions than answers.

This chapter brings together all loose threads and plot lines in the series, while simultaneously acting as a mirror to Watchmen's own penultimate issue. Adrian reveals his master plan to Saturn Girl like he previously id to Rorschach and Night-Owl, but instead o more

Hi there, Nice overall review. But, I was scrolling down the following comic reviews and I've noticed that some are quite underwhelmed by this issue of Doomsday clock. Some of them suggest that the story itself was largely an info-dump, and revealed some of the pacing problems. So, I'm curious to ask, Do you find some the problems as well or maybe you see it differently?
