Welcome back, sorry that I have missed a few, but we are back to reviewing comics every day! Today, Seppin is going to be reviewing Doomsday Clock #9 written by Geoff Johns and art by Gary Frank.
My last review last year was Doomsday Clock #7 I believe which shows the slow, but the amazing process that we have been going through whilst reading this book. On one hand, I really want more and more. However, every time I get an issue I can’t help but be amazed by the incredible work by both Geoff Johns and Gary Frank. The story is a beautiful interaction between the two universes and the art connects the old story masterfully to the modern DC reputation. Let’s get to the review!
Wow! This book is perfect in every way. We finally get more information about Dr. Manhattan and it continues off the last book. It answers a few questions, but it also asks several important questions. I love Batman’s reaction and having him be several steps ahead of everyone else, but also being too slow to save the other heroes. Speaking of those heroes, I love their interaction with Dr. Manhattan, who Geoff John’s writes beautifully. It is unmistakenly Dr. Manhatten. Another part of the story that I really liked was Lois and Lex’s meeting. It reveals Lex has always known who Superman is and also shows how big of a threat the Watchmen Universe poses.
Overall, I love this story. It is just, perfect!
(How good is the story? Does it stand up to others?)
(Does it tell the story? Does it work well with the character?)
(Does this story need to be told? Is it helping the Character?)
(Is the character represented well? Does the writer understand the character?)
