I dug it. I like how they're including a lot of international teams.

This might be the worst 'event' I've read.

Absolutely boring shit.

If it weren't for Dr. Manhattan and Superman showing up at some point (maybe?), I would have stopped reading this crap months ago. Every issue so far has been horrid.

I'm sure Prep loved it, though. thumb up

Doomsday Clock is halfway done and we’re still at a stagnant pace.

Superman and Manhattan need to show the hell up but fast.

I finally checked it out today. Nothing is happening. It's all a big set up towards the end. Which means we might get 1 or 2 good last issues and that's it. The next issue looks like it's going to be another backstory set up as well.

I know they want to contain it all, but it would really move the pace up a bit with tie ins. That one issue was completely wasted on Rorblack's origin that wasn't even deep or interesting anyway. Easy tie in. They're really spreading out the material to make way for 12 issues though. Based off what has happened, this could easily fit into two issues with full context. Maybe some tie ins for origins... maybe. Or just a bio at the end of the issue.

Comedian retcon was shit too.

I'm so tired of Marionette and Mime. These two characters are pretty damn boring. Did we really need a backstory about her puppet maker dad?

I thought there'd be a more interesting dynamic with her basically being Harley Quinn with the Joker, but there wasn't.

I don't know how you keep them important or relevant when it's leading into bringing out Superman, Batman, and Dr M, but this series is really going to try. They pretty much have nothing in common with anyone besides being street trash that Batman cleans up every other week.

Is Dr M going to halt and reflect back on that time he looked at Marionette and it's going to change everything?

This payoff better be worth it. This is already as long as most other events... great events where tons of shit happened every issue. Universes, multiverses, important heroes died, etc.

It's trying to be like Watchmen but things actually happened in Watchmen, and Dr M made regular appearances doing random shit and flopping his willy around. The flashbacks were important. The threat was real. Everyone played a part and did things throughout. Among other things... I don't know.

Although Rorblack talking to Batman like an animal is kind of entertaining.

My issue is that Dr. Manhattan was originally touted as this Supreme Being-level foe, more powerful than even Mxy, who has been altering DC's timeline for some unknown reason.

Fast-forward to now, and absolutely NO emphasis is being placed on Manhattan or his machinations. DC has completely moved on like it's no longer relevant... And given the pace of this event, Johns is evidently in NO rush to catch up.

I'm still hoping this will pay off in a big way, but damn has it been some boring garbage so far.

Issue 7 was actually pretty good. First time I’m excited for the next issue to be released

Yes, it only took 7 issues(out of 12) for this series to get pointed in the right direction. thumb up

I think Johns did a great job with Manhattan's portrayal, tbh(Ozy's cat being able to feed off his energy and cause him pain notwithstanding)... But I'm still curious what Jon's larger endgame is? Like Ozy said: "there are no coincidences":

(please log in to view the image)

He's done everything so far with a clear purpose/objective in mind.

I actually love that bit about Oz lying about dying of cancer.



Can wait to see the show down between Superman and Dr Manhattan

Hopefully it’s not as dumb as the upside down people vs Diana

Issue 11 was ho-hum.

This final issue had better knock my socks off, but I sincerely doubt that it will.

Two years in the making and this is simply a mediocre story and fails massively to reach the standards of Watchmen.

As someone who doesn’t think Watchmen is the greatest thing ever written (and liked the movie more, there I said it), I wasn’t expecting it (Doomsday Clock) to be as groundbreaking or original.

TBH the reason i’m getting it is I like the artist, and I know good or bad it’s one of those “must read” books someone who collects comics needs to have under his belt to understand certain conversations.
