"Signing up two generations' worth of legendary artists [Joe and Andy Kubert] is a wise move for DC Entertainment."—NY Daily News

"J. Michael Straczynski's writing is crisp and keeps the story moving -- he's clearly not trying to "rewrite" the original Moore material, but instead builds off on it."—Mtv Geek

Nite Owl

Mr. Mason war die ursprüngliche Nite Owl und in seinem Auftreten ein Vorbild für den jungen Dan Dreiberg, der in seiner häuslichen Situation – und seinem eigenen Umgang damit – sehr unglücklich ist. Es gelingt ihm – ähnlich wie Tim Drake in der Batman-Serie – den Unterschlupf seines Idols zu finden und diesen in eine Art Bewerbungsgespräch zu verwickeln. Mr. Mason stimmt schließlich zu ihn auszubilden. Eine Entscheidung, die schließlich ihnen beiden zum Nutzen gereichen soll.

Kurz nach dem Beginn seiner Solo-Karriere begegnet Dan dem Vigilanten Rorschach, einer Person, die seine Art des Kämpfens fabelhaft ergänzt und ihn auch gesellschaftspolitisch aufmerksam hält. Zusammen arbeiten sie sich durch die Prostitutions- und Drogenszene, ein Bereich, den Mr. Mason in seiner Karriere aus Public Relation-Gründen gemieden hatte und dabei lernt Dan eine Menge über sich selbst und sein Verhältnis zur Wahrheit und zu Frauen – und wir als Leserinnen und Leser lernen nebenher auch noch eine ganze Menge über Rorschachs grundlegende Motivationen und für seine extremen Vorgehensweisen. Über Teile der Geschichte wird Rorschach damit eigentlich die Hauptfigur der Erzählung. Sehr mitreißend, aber optisch deutlich mehr im Erwachsenenliteraturbereich verhaftet.

Dr. Manhattan

Dr. Manhattan hat ebenfalls eine sehr prägende Kindheit hinter sich, die mit bewirken sollte, dass sein Vater ihn nach dem Abwurf der ersten Atombombe in den Bereich der Nuklear-Physik trieb, wo er dann seinen lebensverändernden Unfall haben sollte.

Als eine lebende Quantenanomalie, die auf dem Zeitstrom hin und her reisen kann wird Jon a.k.a. Dr.

Von Martin O
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Graphisch ist dieser Teil der von DC produzierten Vorgeschichte zu Watchmen bestechend. Dabei ist es egal, ob die Illustration von Vater und Sohn Kubert, von Adam Hughes oder Eduardo Risso kommen. Alle sind - vor allem auf dem ausgezeichneten Papier - eine reine Augenweide. Inhaltlich ist es - zwangsläufig - durchwachsen. Was soll eine Vorgeschichte bei Dr. Manhattan, der ein Wesen außerhalb der Zeit ist und auch schon in Watchmen entlang seiner Zeitlinie auf und ab gehüpft ist. Gut, er repariert einen selbst prodzierten Fehler im Zeitstrom, am Ende bleibt die Frage: War diese Geschichte notwendig? Sowohl bei Nite Owl als auch bei Moloch füllen die Erzählungen den Hintergrund wesentlich besser aus. Dennoch auch hier: Muss ich wissen, wie Rohrschach zu seinem Schild "The End is Nigh" kam? Trägt es zum Verständnis von Watchmen bei, dass ich jetzt weiß, dass Moloch ein häßlicher Junge war, der sich nur an seiner Jugendliebe rächen wollte? Egal, gute Utnerhaltung war es trotzdem.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Another mixed bag of "Before Watchmen," but worth reading just for Dr. Manhattan 16. Juli 2013
Von J. A Magill - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
In the great debate regarding DC's decision to launch "Before Watchmen," I remain committedly agnostic. I understand the view of those who see Moore and Gibson's creations as unique, not only for their place in the evolution of the comic as an art form but also, perhaps, as characters meant to occupy a singular storyline and go no further. And yes, one should understandably fear the possibility - hyperbole intentional - of these stories feeling like "Hamlet - the Prequel." At the same time, characters passing from one creative team to another lays at the very DNA of superhero comics, part of what makes it a form unlike any other. After all, Moore and Gibson originally imagined their story populated by the Charlton Comics' characters (The Question, Blue Beatle, Captain Atom, etc) before deciding on creating a cast all their own. Just as Gaiman "adopted" the New Gods and made something new and exciting, and Kirby and Shuster's Captain America passed into Brubaker's loving hands, should The Minutemen be any different?

So how is "Before Watchmen: Nite Owl & Dr. Manhattan"? Not as bad as many feared, but given the talent of those involved, probably not as good as it should have been. Indeed, of the "Before Watchmen" books, no other so combines the good and the bad of the effort.

Nite Owl certainly represents a missed opportunity. Michael Straczynski, usually one of my favorite comic writers for his excellent dialogue and bright characterizations here mostly just seems to phone in a prequel/origin story. Wealthy Daniel Drieberg's motivations for donning the cowl read like boiler plate serial stuff. His early days being trained by the original Nite Owl give the reader a similar sense of having "been there, done that." In terms of the one bit of new character insight that the book does deliver... well, if you've spent the last few decades wondering as to the why of Daniel's particular and peculiar sexual dysfunction, this is your lucky day! Question answered. Perhaps I speak for no other readers, but I'd really have preferred a story that mined the rich vein of Nite Owl and Rorschach's complex relationship.

On the flip side, Dr. Manhattan represents some of the most original storytelling in this whole endeavor. Straczynski here embraces the constraints writing a prequel, shining a whole new light on a story that we saw in the original book, Dr. Manhattan's origin. Here we see it conceived of, not as an unalterable linear path, but as a series of decisions, each of which could have taken the good doctor into a far different life. (A note here: some will object at liberties taken, since in the original story Manhattan embraced determinism and explained that he has no choice, that none of us do, and that the only difference between his god-like power and we ants is that he "can see the strings." To those who feel the need to wail and froth about this writerly choice, I say get over yourself). Dr. Manhattan's choices are often interesting and usually inspired by the most quotidian of motivations (and you thought the world was saved before because the good doctor had a weakness for jail bait?!). Would we have liked Dr. Jon Osterman? Could it be that he had as much potential as a mere human as he did as a near-god? Could the whole Watchmen universe really begin at the series end?

By the by, Adam Hughes' art work serves this particular series quite well. His style, so smooth and seemingly effortless, harkens back to much of the beauty in Gibbons' original while still making it wholly his own. And of course, while I could of course do with fewer giant blue shlong levitating about, Hughes doesn't, um, overwork the image.

These various "splits" as the story branches as decision points give the reader a wonderful insight into Dr. Manhattan's essential humanity. That humanity, so crucial to Watchmen's plot, just delights. And so we get thoughts of loss. Questions of what it means to be human, an examination of the profound prison that is loneliness. One can also spot any number of interesting Freudian Easter Eggs that seek to deepen the meaning of otherwise minor points in Moore and Gibson's original. I especially liked Dr. Manhattan's interactions with the world's smartest man, Ozymandias (no more significant that "the world's smartest ant"). This scene as much as any in the whole of this project served to enrich the larger Watchmen universe.

As with other of the Watchmen collections, this one includes a shorter back up story, in this case the two-issue "Moloch." For those who don't recall, Moloch serves as the catch all super-villain in the Watchmen universe. He wasn't all that interesting in the Moore/Gibson original, save in that he demonstrated that age could render villains every bit as pathetic as any hero. As with Nite Owl, this book leaves one wondering why it needed to exist at all. We get a lot of back story, answering questions we probably didn't need answered. As is the current default origin story for comic villains, we learn that Moloch's background was tragic and that we should feel sorry for him. All that being said, this story does contain a few bright lights. As with Dr. Manhattan, Straczynski again demonstrates a flair for writing Ozymandias, one which makes me wish he'd been given that book (see my review). Moloch and Ozymandias's interactions deepen both characters, giving the former some much needed agency and making the latter still creepier (making Ozymandias creepier seems to be a major theme running through much of Before Watchmen). Eduardo Risso's art also fits this story beautifully, hisstyle and muted colors exuding a certain neo-gothic feel that evokes dark fairytales.

While not the best "Before Watchmen" chapter, "Nite Owl & Dr. Midnight" mostly holds its own and certainly isn't the worst. Still, as with much of this enterprise, this book is too often a sad reminder of what might have been.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Pleasantly Surprised at this Collection! 17. Juli 2014
Von L. Henry Dowell-Playwright - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This is my first review of the BEFORE WATCHMEN series. Let me establish a few things quickly.
1. I love Watchmen. Even though many young, internet savvy twenty-nothings refer to it as a "graphic novel", it wasn't. Not originally. It was a twelve issue comic book series published in 1986-87. It WAS collected into one volume in 1987 and has seen many subsequent reprinting's since that time.
2. I love Alan Moore. Watchmen. V for Vendetta. The Killing Joke. Swamp Thing. League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. He brings a sophistication to comic books that it usually reserved for more serious works of fiction. He wasn't the first to do this and he most certainly wasn't the last but he was and is an excellent writer who not only takes his job very serious but believes comic books can be much more than a few minutes worth of escapism. He deserves all the praise that has been heaped upon him for his work. However, having said that...
3. Alan Moore can be a real jerk. Much of the work he has built his career on has been taking other people's characters and presenting them in a new fashion. There's nothing wrong with that. BUT BOY DOES HE GET TICKED IF SOMEONE ELSE DARES TOUCH HIS WORK!
4. Alan Moore didn't create these characters. Every one of the WATCHMEN are modified versions of the Charlton characters. Some are modified only slightly. Not to take away from what he did do with them, which was to craft a very elaborate murder mystery and deconstruct the idea of the superhero and make them real, living, breathing human beings with all the baggage that goes along with that. But he didn't create them.
5. I hate what DC Comics has become. I haven't purchased a single New 52 comic and was content not to support the destruction of a comic universe I had followed for nearly 40 years. In fact, I viewed BEFORE WATCHMEN as just another bad idea in a long list of bad ideas by DC Management. However...

6. I enjoyed this collection. I had waited a long time to buy this. Feeling, like many other "old timers" that Watchmen had achieved a sacred cow status and needed neither prequel or sequel. Finally, my love for the characters of Watchmen got the better of me. I am happy to report that as far as this particular group of stories is concerned, I was wrong. This collection does a good job of filling in a few of the blanks from Watchmen without attempting to re-invent the wheel. I won't cover plot points in this review except to say I enjoyed playing connect the dots with events both large and small from Watchmen. I really get the feeling that these particular issues were approached with great reverence to Mr. Moore and Mr. Gibbons and the original series.

If you are a Watchmen fan, I do not think this collection will disappoint you. It is quite good and worthy of 5 stars.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Dr. Manhattan story is great; Nite Owl is okay 16. Juli 2013
Von Scott Knight - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
The Nite Owl story was the origin of the second Nite Owl. His relationship to the original Nite Owl, his motivations for becoming Nite Owl, and his membership in the Crimebusters are all presented. There is quite a bit dedicated to Dan Dreiberg (Nite Owl II) and Hollis Mason (Original Nite Owl) as the torch is passed and Dreiberg is trained. There is a very cool dynamic there. Additionally, the team-up relationship between Dreiberg and Rorschach is explored. It is these two relationships, as well as Nite Owl's romantic interest in Silk Spectre, that drive the story. They really add to Nite Owl's character development and provide a nice lead-in to the original Watchmen series.

The Dr. Manhattan story was very interesting. It included the origin of Dr. Manhattan, his introduction to the Silk Spectre, and the ramifications of physics, time, and the consequences of making choices. It seemed very philosophical and dealt with the ramifications of Dr. Manhattan's powers. It also showed some background into how Ozymandias manipulated Dr. Manhattan in order to execute his plan in Watchmen, serving as a nice side story to the opening chapters of the original story.

I really enjoyed these this book, and the approach that Straczynski took to the characters. They were very true to the spirit and character of Watchmen. I would highly recommend this to any fans of the original.

I received a review copy of this book from Netgalley and DC Comics in exchange for honest review.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Pretty good - but not the best of the series 21. Juli 2013
Von J. Wan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Before Watchmen is a series that examines the principal characters in the acclaimed Watchmen series before the events in that work. If you are not familiar with the Watchmen series, it is unlikely you'd enjoy or can follow this series. If you are a fan of good comics, "serious" comics, graphic novels, a different take on the superhero theme and mysteries, then you'd enjoy Watchmen - it is an acclaimed work and is much deeper than the movie version may make you believe.

There are four collections in the Before Watchmen series. The earlier volumes looked at Ozymandias, have an example of the Pirate Comics which figure as a major subplot and theme in the Watchmen series, looked at the Minutemen (mainly Hollis Mason) and the second Silk Spectre. All of the prequels take a mystery or background point in the original series and tries to expand on it. In Minutemen, we learn more about them, their triumphs, their failures and in particular learn about what happened Hooded Justice, The Silhouette, Mothman and the greatest adventure of the Minutemen that will never be known. It is arguably the best of all the works and Darwyn Cooke's writing and drawing style meshes well with the irony of Alan Moore and fine line style of Dave Gibbons. The series on the second Silk Spectre works surprisingly well. Amanda Conner captures the goofiness of teenage angst in her rounded soft focus Archie comics cartoony style. This installment examined the seminal events that led Laurie Juspeczyk to accepting her role as the second Silk Spectre. The Ozymandias work focused on what led Adrian Veldt to crime fighting and how he concluded that to really "save" civilization and society he had to do more than just fight crime. There is a long section on the first encounter between Ozymandias and The Comedian which is wordy and seemed to miss a key reference of the original work - that Ozymandias was dismissive of The Comedian's fighting skills except for a very good feint.

This volume focuses on Dr. Manhattan and the second Nite Owl. The Dr. Manhattan part is the superior of the two. J. Michael Straczynski tackles the question of Dr. Manhattan's distance from humanity and provides a very clever and consistent explanation of why Dr. Manhattan has a conscious reason to be a detached figure isolated from human cares. The Nite Owl piece looks at how Dan Dreiberg became friends with Hollis Mason and became the second Nite Owl. It may not be as popular because the Dreiberg character is largely a pale imitation of Hollis Mason. He means well and wants to do good. He was inspired as a picked upon boy with an abused mom but in the end lacks the same hearty earnest conviction of Hollis Mason on the surface. We learn that Mason has plenty of doubts and seems to be able to absorb the disappointments and move on with his life.

In brief, if you enjoy Watchmen, you'll enjoy these works. Minutemen is the most complete and has the same ironic sadness found in the original work. Dr. Manhattan provides a deeper explanation of why he is distant and withdrawn. Silk Spectre is the surprisingly interesting insightful and Nite Owl fills some of the background but may be hindered by the fundamental nature of the Dreiberg character.
4.0 von 5 Sternen I really enjoyed the Nite Owl part 3. September 2014
Von Jose Luis Ruiz - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I really enjoyed the Nite Owl part. I read it before "Before Watchmen: Minutemen/Silk Spectre", and it really help me understand the other book afterwards. The Dr. Manhattan episodes were too hard to understand for me and, besides describing Dr. Manhattan's birth, I think they didn't add much to the comprehension of the Minutemen/Watchmen universe.
