Review: ★★★☆☆

I want to believe that we wanted this series. I wanted to think that Doomsday Clock was a good idea. I want it to be memorable. It’s book that has become more Watchmen then DC. Perhaps that is the path that this story takes. Even when the Joker is at his highest mania, Mime and Marionette step in to overshadow the Clown Prince of Crime. They even out do Batman to a point. Ozymandias has the belief that he can save his world by convincing Jon(Dr. Manhattan)to come back and save it. His giant red funky cat and a special guest device does this for him. Does Geoff Johns believe it needs saving? In a story such as this or The Watchmen, people will die or the Riddler will get maimed. Ask the Joker to tell you the joke…it’s stupendous. It’s interesting that after seeing the Watchmen movie I now hear Dr. Manhattan’s movie voice as I read his dialog. It seems to be unavoidable. It makes this story comfortable. We have 5 issues left of this series. I say the clock continues to tick as each month draws the ending closer to it’s resolve. When the last chime of the clock hits we will either appreciate what has been brought before us or let it fade into the past. The potential of the next keeps us watching the clock.
