What do you think about the Watchmen prequel?
It's a great idea! I wish this prequel had already happened 35 minutes ago so I could read it now!
I had some reservations, but the creative teams look good, so I'll give it a shot.
I'm not really into it, but I get why they did it. I don't really care.
