Tying in the characters and events of Watchmen to the larger DC Comics universe was the big secret and big reveal when the line debuted earlier this year. Then … nothing. Now it sounds like this crossover is about to start making a bit more sense.
Marvel Comics has turned the non-reboot “reboot” into an art form these days, and DC Comics co-publisher Jim Lee has opened up to provide some additional context about the publisher’s ongoing Rebirth relaunch.
With Marvel enjoying some renewed critical and sales success coming off the All New, All Different relaunch, DC Comics is also gearing up for its own semi-reboot — and the spirit of the idea might owe a debt of gratitude to a galaxy far, far away.
