Silk Spectre Art By Amanda Conner – Happy New Year

UPDATE: This artwork in question has been moved, after a legal letter from Amy E Genkins of DC Comics. Bleeding Cool has complied with her request. So I get another late night phone call. “Look in your inbox”. The phone goes dead. I only went to bed two hours ago, but I grab my iPad […]

Is There A Watchmen 2 Reference In Justice League #3?

When Bleeding Cool first talked about the recent revival of the Watchmen prequel mini-series, we mentioned that the project was being referred to internally at DC Comics amongst select individuals as “Panic Room”. One Little Bleeder pointed out a page from Justice League #3 by Geoff Johns and Jim Lee, the chief creative officer and […]

Watchmen Art They Can’t Stop Us Posting

On Christmas Day Bleeding Cool posted art from the upcoming Watchmen prequels from DC Comics – and we received a cease and desist note from DC Comics on the same day. Possibly a first. I blame Bob Wayne. Anyway, while we have been asked not to show JG Jones’ Comedian or Andy and Joe Kubert’s […]

Tuesday Trending Topics: New 52 Year

Today we got our first trend-topping New 52 story in some time, and while it’s a holiday news week, it does bring to mind what a crazy year 2011 was for comics news (and closing out strong with Watchmen 2 in the panic room) as we turn our attention to wondering what 2012 will bring. […]

Watchmen 2: Amanda Conner To Draw Silk Spectre

No, we don’t have the art to prove it. Sorry. We heard Amanda Conner was attached to the Watchmen prequel comic, being produced at DC Comics under the fake name “Panic Room”, but it had been denied by those close to her. However, we’ve now received more confirmatory details, and in one form or other, […]

Watchmen 2 Art: The Comedian By JG Jones (UPDATE)

Bleeding Cool is proud to present the cover art to one of the Watchmen prequel products, currently being developed at DC Comics under the code name “Panic Room”. We present The Comedian by JG Jones. It is possible we may hear more about this in the New Year. We ran Nite Owl artwork from Andy Kubert and […]

Bleeding Cool is proud to present the cover art to one of the Watchmen prequel products, currently being developed at DC Comics under the code name “Panic Room”. We present Nite Owl by father and son team Joe Kubert and Andy Kubert. I guess we might expect to hear more about this in the New […]

The Ethics Of Watchmen 2

Whoever is involved, whenever it is scheduled, DC Comics do seem to be continuing with the production of a series of Watchmen prequel comics by a variety of talented writers and artists. But should they? Here are a few thoughts worth considering. The Contract Alan Moore definitely argues the ethics behind the original contract he […]

JG Jones To Draw The Comedian In Watchmen 2

We’ve heard JG Jones linked to Watchmen prequel rumours before. We’ve had reports of Darwyn Cooke writing a prequel mini-series starring The Comedian. And now I’ve come across a rather reliable source that says JG Jones is drawing The Comedian. So… do we have a Darwyn Cooke/JG Jones Comedian mini-series for next year? It appears […]

Watchmen 2 – Nite Owl, The Comedian And More

Yesterday I ran what I believe is the first definitive creator casting for one of a number of Watchmen prequel mini-series, from a primary source. “Watchmen 2” rapidly became the highest Twitter trending topic in the world. I’m not sure if that’s ever happened for a comic before. But it also unearthed a couple of […]

Thursday Trending Topics: Watchmen 2

December got off to a fast start here on BC. You know any day that kicks off with (trending-worldwide) Watchmen 2 and Diesel DC Boxer Shorts is going to be an interesting day.  But is that bad-interesting or good-interesting?  That’s for you to decide… Most-Read Comic Stories Today: Andy Kubert To Draw Watchmen 2 (UPDATE) […]

Saturday Trending Topics: All This, And Watchmen Too

One of the fascinating things about this Watchmen 2 business is exactly that — the business implications of it.  Because directly in the wake of the wildly successful New 52 launch, they’re going to be launching this. And no matter what you think of the creative implications of whatever final shape this Watchmen 2 project […]

The Phone Call That Confirmed Watchmen 2

“How did you know? How did you know? I didn’t know. How did you know?” That was the phone call I got at 3 o’clock in the morning my time, 10 in the evening in New York. It was clearly from a bar, it was from a DC editorial type, and it was clearly in […]

Squirrelling Out Details On Watchmen 2

Sometimes all you do is have to mention its name, and lots of bits spill out. Two days ago, Bleeding Cool mentioned that Watchmen prequels at DC were back on the agenda, after the success of the New 52. That meetings were happening this week. That it had the code name “Panic Room”. That names […]

Wednesday Trending Topics: Watching The Watchmen

You have to be intrigued by a process that ends up code-naming a highly controversial project Panic Room.  Because what were the odds that a secret project that enticingly-named was going to get around?  Subatomic-level post-52 viral marketing, or clever pay-no-attention-to-the-project-behind-the-curtain back-stagecraft?  It’ll be fascinating to see where this one is going… Most-Read Comic Stories […]

The Return Of Watchmen 2

A couple of years ago, Bleeding Cool broke the news that DC Comics was planning to return to Watchmen to tell new stories. Dave Gibbons would be involved as well as many of DC’s brightest stars. The very concept was pooh-poohed and Bleeding Cool was accused to making the whole thing up, by some. Until […]

Alan Moore Speaks Watchmen 2 To Adi Tantimedh

For a twenty-five year old comic, Watchmen is still a major player at DC Comics. Back in February of this year, they announced an upcoming miniseries to be written by Grant Morrison  featuring one-shots each set on a different alternate Earth in the DC Multiverse.  Wizard magazine published a piece of artwork by Art Adams […]

Lying In The Gutters – 8th February 2010.

Secret Avengers by Brubaker and Deodato Jr? I want more adjectives dammit! Avengers Academy won’t be enough, I want Preppy Avengers Academy!! So what else has been happening this week? Oh yes. I broke out the Young Justice League cartoon news, and thought that, wow, that was going to be my biggest story of the […]

Look! It Moves! by Adi Tantimedh #34: Why A Movie?

As Rich reported last week, many news outlets would only report on the prospect of a WATCHMEN sequel by speculating on the prospect of a movie sequel rather than any follow-ups to the comic. Leaving aside the laziness and incompetence of the journalists in question, what I wondered was, Why the need to bring up […]
