From CBR:

WHAT IS DOOMSDAY CLOCK AND WHY IS IT SUCH A BIG DEAL?

Doomsday Clock is the latest comic book event series to be published by DC Comics. Created by frequent collaborators Geoff Johns and Gary Frank, it’s a 12 issue maxiseries that is the next big stepping stone in the DC Universe. Expectations have been high for this series even before it was announced. In fact, two years ago, DC Comics relaunched its entire line under the DC Rebirth banner, starting with a massive issue titled DC Universe Rebirth Special #1, written by Geoff Johns and illustrated by DC’s biggest artists (including Frank).

The Rebirth Special was a big deal because it ended with a shocking revelation: whatever strange machinations were currently at work in the DCU somehow involved the characters of Watchmen, the brilliant 1987 comic book series by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons. Watchmen is a classic, arguably DC’s most iconic graphic novel. It is viewed by many as a perfect piece of fiction that is equal parts a superhero epic and a deconstruction of the superhero story.

Although the seeds were planted in the Rebirth Special over two years ago, Doomsday Clock will be the series that fully brings the Watchmen characters into the DC Universe, after being confined to their graphic novel for the past three decades.

24 Hour Comic Day is coming!

Hey this is very last minute and intended to be a dry run/ test for a full event next year. (Many apologies, as Hurricane Harvey Relief has been our focus for a while). The event is a way to get artists and writers together to make a 24 page comic in 24 hours. Its amazing what amazing creativity can happen in 24 hours when artists work together. The plan is to work during store hours at the shop together and then independently at home after shop hours this year. We will post our finished product for everyone’s enjoyment, and perhaps a limited run print for charity.
