Before Watchmen: Nite Owl/Dr. Manhattan Deluxe Edition wraps up the hardcover collections of the prequels to the critically acclaimed original graphic novel. It features all four issues of both the Nite Owl and Dr. Manhattan titles as well as the two issues of Moloch. This volume is a mixed bag for me, although the good ends up outweighing the mediocre.
I put off reviewing the December cover issues of the Before Watchmen event because two of the five issues never arrived. After waiting a few days, I decided to get a hold of DC and found out they had been delayed for some reason or another. Fans of the "Watchmen" prequels were no doubt disappointed to find that the latest entries in both the Silk Spectre and Comedian books weren't hitting shelves as scheduled. However, we did get the next chapters in Rorschach, Dr. Manhattan, and the Minutemen's adventures.
The Before Watchmen event continues to wow readers with the long-awaited first issue of Dr. Manhattan. It's a no-brainer that the luminescent blue superhero is the one most fans of the original graphic novel were anxious to set their eyes on. The debut chapter doesn't disappoint and sheds light on some of the events that took place in Alan Moore's best-selling book.
