BuzzFeed visited the DC Comics offices recently and received an early look at pages of art from the upcoming Before Watchmen series in a fancy three ring binder. It looks like the binder includes the script, but they only shared images showcasing character designs.
Regardless of how you feel about these Before Watchmen prequels, it’s hard to deny that the art is worth taking a second look at. I mean, the likes of Darwyn Cooke, Amanda Conner, Jae Lee, Joe Kubert and more fill out the talented roster pencilling the pages. Cooke and Conner in particular are in my top ten favorite comic book artists, and I’ll probably pick up at least the first issue of anything they work on including Watchmen.

I know a lot of fans are fuming over these books and, true to form, Alan Moore has been vocal in his disgust. He calls them “shameless.” But after seeing these pages, what do you think? Do you plan to read any of the new series?
