Review: ★★★★★

Is it possible to repeat magic? The Watchmen was revolutionary and probably one of the best conceived stories of the last fifty years. What does Geoff Johns plan to accomplish by telling this new story? Surely, he knows the it can’t be done to that scale again.  Even if the issues repeat the small panels Dave Gibbons put together in the original…it can’t be done. Mental note though Gary Frank’s art is fantastic and not be doubted. Johns has done what Crisis on Infinite Earth attempted to do 1986, but didn’t really fail as so much convoluted the time line. Issue #10 focuses on Dr. Manhattan’s presence in this current universe or multiverse. He discovers Superman is the focus of the time variations. Johns attempts explain the re-boots of the DC Universe as a whole, by making Superman the beginning of each change. Through out this issue another character is introduced. His purpose was to have Manhattan discover his true side or what he happens to be in this tale. It’s a magical moment that makes truly us appreciate John’s trick to fix the universe.
