"Doomsday Clock," should have been terrible. It should have not worked at all. Instead it has been great thanks to Geoff Johns doing some of the best writing of his career and Gary Frank contributing his usual amazing artwork. The comic even existing is still a smack in the face to Alan Moore, but even people and websites who expressed disgust at the comic occurring have been agreeing with me that it is really good. "Doomsday Clock," has been a mixture of meta-commentary on the history of the DC Universe, an expression of modern political concerns and controversy, and a suspenseful thriller all in its own right. Assuming it manages to stick its landing, "Doomsday Clock," may very well end-up being a worthy sequel to, "Watchmen," and that wouldn't just be a surprise, that would be an absolute blindside--but a good one, of course.
