Bruce Timm is finally getting to adapt one of the most iconic (and controversial) Batman stories, The Killing Joke, but this is hardly the first time plans have been made by DC and Warner to turn Alan Moore and Brian Bolland’s best-selling comic into a movie.

If Marvel Had Owned Watchmen, That Big DC Rebirth Twist Might Have Come Sooner

The bombshell is out: Rebirth has made the Watchmen part of the DC comics universe, and turned at least one of them into the biggest antagonist in the cosmos.

'I Did It 35 Minutes Ago': Before Watchmen's Prequel Problem

Last week, Minutemen #1 — the first of DC Comics’ suite of Before Watchmen projects — came out. This week, Silk Spectre #1 hits the stands. There’s been heaps of controversy surrounding DC’s decision to make more comics set in the beloved fictional universe created by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ landmark 1986 series. And, like I’ve said before, the mere existence of these books isn’t the end of everything sacred. In fact, they’re both good comics.

As controversial as it’s been, DC Comics’ upcoming prequel to the Watchmen hold have also piqued the interest of comics fans everywhere. The book I’m most looking forward to is Minutemen, written and drawn by Darwyn Cooke.
