At Fan Expo in Toronto today DC Entertainment announced a further title to be added to the controversial, yet successful Before Watchmen series of comics.
Before Watcmen: Moloch will be written by J. Michael Straczynski and illustrated by Eduardo Risso. The character was central to the original Alan Moore Watchmen series and over two issues we will find out how Edward William Jacobi became Moloch the Mystic.
Joining the roster of seven mini-series, BEFORE WATCHMEN: MOLOCH will be written by current BW: NITE OWL, BW: DR. MANHATTAN and upcoming SUPERMAN: EARTH ONE Vol. 2 writer J. Michael Straczynski with art by Eduardo Risso (SPACEMAN and 100 BULLETS).
If you don’t know who Moloch is, he’s a villian in the Watchmen universe. In fact, you may have recently seen a glimpse or two of him in BW: COMEDIAN or BW: OZYMANDIAS. And now, you’re about to learn a lot more.
BEFORE WATCHMEN: MOLOCH #1 will be on sale November 7 and issue #2 will be available December 26.
