With the announcement of DC Comics' Doomsday Clock, legendary writer Geoff Johns makes a triumphant return to the DC Universe. Johns—the mastermind behind last year’s epic DC Universe: Rebirth—is collaborating with artists Gary Frank and Brad Anderson on the title, which will delve into the iconic story of the Watchmen. In Johns’ own words:
“It's time. Last year, the DC Universe confronted the legacy of Watchmen in Rebirth the way Watchmen confronted the legacy of superhero comics three decades ago,” he said. “Thematically, and metaphorically, there was no better choice than to use Dr. Manhattan. If you’re going to have a conflict between optimism and pessimism, a battle between the very forces of hope and despair, you need to have someone who personifies the cynicism that has leaked into our hearts and also has the ability to affect the entire DCU. It’s all paying off this November with Doomsday Clock.”
In an exclusive interview with SyFyWire, Johns reveals additional details about Doomsday Clock, including characters and story origins.
