In a tweet, Doomsday Clock writer and Chief Creative Officer of DC Geoff Johns shared a tease for the next issue in the Watchmen-meet-the-DC Universe event, as the two universes finally meet on the page.
In the panel shown, the new Rorschach seems to find himself in a well known DC landmark, in the form of Batman’s base of operations beneath Wayne Manor, the Batcave.
A look at #DoomsdayClock issue #2 coming 12/27 from the great @1moreGaryFrank and @bdanderson13 as the two worlds collide! There will be a month break in shipping after the first 4 issues, between #4 and #5, to keep the quality and page count as high as possible. Hope you dig it! pic.twitter.com/rqnHADBJ0g

Seems like a rough judgement there from Rorschach, eh?
However, one of the other interesting elements that Johns throws out there in this tweet is that there will be a skip month between issues 4 and 5 of Doomsday Clock, to allow for the art team of Gary Frank and Brad Anderson to catch up and keep the same art team throughout the series – or as Johns puts it, to ‘keep the quality and page count as high as possible’.
So it seems we’ll take a bit of a break between issues, but at least we’ll get a consistent art and no fill in artists. Yet.
The next issue of Doomsday Clock comes out December 27th, 2017.
In this second chapter: The Dark Knight discovers another relic from the Watchmen world. Lex Luthor pays a devil’s bargain. And killer clowns trek through Gotham seeking a madman.
