DC's Doomsday Clock Art Teases Universe Altering Crossover With Watchmen

GameSpot has the story.

DC Comics has another large-scale event coming this fall, and for the first time, aspects of Alan Moore's iconic story The Watchmen will be combining with the DC Universe in Doomsday Clock. During a panel at San Diego Comic-Con, writer Geoff Johns showed off some interior art for the book and vaguely discussed the story.

Ever since Watchmen's Dr. Manhattan appeared at the end of DC's Rebirth one-shot, back in June 2016, fans have been wanting answers. Rebirth relaunched the DC by combining elements of the New 52 line with Pre-Flashpoint material. A task this large could be daunting, but during a panel for the event at Comic-Con, writer Geoff Johns seemed up for the challenge.

While Doomsday Clock seemed to be the highlight of the panel, Johns was relatively tight-lipped about the event. "You'll know in the first page of the first issue, you'll know exactly what the story's about" Johns said during the panel.

The logo for the event mixes the Doomsday Clock with the Superman emblem. Johns said that the Man of Steel is the story but did not go much deeper into detail. Moving forward, Johns mentioned some more elements about the upcoming event: "I love seeing the smartest man from one world talking to the smartest man from another. And the smartest man from this world, from DC, is Lex Luthor. And that's all I'll say." Those familiar with Watchmen will know the smartest man on that world is Ozymandias. However, there is no confirmation about whether that character will appear in Doomsday Clock as of yet.

I figured a much better crossover logo would be the yellow happy face badge but with the superman logo (in black) instead of the face details, and then still with the iconic blood drip on it (which already mimics the 11:58 clock hands). This one is kinda meh.

I wish DC would stop ruining Watchmen's legacy.

Especially if this really is just a shallow technique to keep control of the IP...

I like the idea of more Watchmen, I just don't think DC has enough decent writers & artists to pull this off. Look at Before Watchmen, it was a total bomb almost across the board. And that was the best writers & artists they had available at the time. Since then they have lost a lot of their AA level talent.
I'm bad, and that's good. I will never be good, and that's not bad. There's no one I'd rather be than me.

It's never to late to ruin an IP!
DC needs something and it's not this and it's not "the other marvel".
