Doomsday Clock will be counting down in November!

Since DC Comics Rebirth #1 we have been awaiting The Watchmen to crosspaths with the DC Universe and now DC Entertainment’s CCO Geoff Johns has confirmed they will collide in a new mini-series event titled Doomsday Clock:

“It is Watchmen colliding with the DC Universe. It is the most personal and most epic, utterly mind-bending project I have ever worked on in my career. With Rebirth, I opened the door to Manhattan. Part of that was I loved the real-world influence Watchmen has. I put Manhattan out there, and always thought there was a Manhattan/Superman story to be told, but then … it grew. And grew. It took my heart and soul over. Still, at the core of it, there’s a being who has lost his humanity, and distanced himself from it, and an alien who embodies humanity more than most humans. I love the idea that Watchmen influenced DC, but what would that look like in reverse? And it goes well beyond that.”

Johns will script the series, which has Gary Frank on pencils, with Brad Anderson on colors. Johns goes on to reveal the series won’t be like other crossovers with no spin-off one shots and additional comics to “get the whole story.”

“We’re not going to do a story like this unless we one-thousand percent believe in it. It is all about the story; it is only about the story. There are no crossovers. No watered down one-shots or mini-series on top of this one. This is a standalone story. There is only Doomsday Clock. We had no interest in doing a crossover with this. We didn’t want to see Doctor Manhattan facing off against Superman in Action Comics, with all due respect. That is not what this is about. It is about something different … It will have an impact on the entire DC Universe. It will affect everything moving forward and everything that has come before. It will touch the thematic and literal essence of DC.”
