Kevin Smith Turned Down BEFORE WATCHMEN

When reporting early rumours about Before Watchmen, almost every name I was given turned out to be true – Darwyn Cooke, Brian Azzarello, JMS, Amanda Conner, JG Jones, Andy Kubert, Joe Kubert, Adam Hughes and John Higgins. There was another name that I dismissed as it was denied directly – that of Kevin Smith.

His name did keep popping up however. So I asked him if he’d ever actually been approached to write for Before Watchmen. He told me;

“Talked to Jim [Lee] and Dan [DiDio] about it two years ago. Only passed because I’m not Alan Moore, sadly. If I was Alan Moore, I’d be all over it. As Kevin Smith, I’d likely just make Bubastis “big pussy” jokes and have Rorschach wet himself. Hurm.”

Shame, I think I would have enjoyed Veidt And Silent Bubastis. And as we now know, Len Wein is now writing that title…
