The stories from the mini-series Nite Owl (4 issues) and Dr. Manhattan (4 issues) are collected, along with Moloch (2 issues) as Before Watchmen: Nite Owl / Dr. Manhattan HC. These stories, set (obviously) before the events of the 25 year-old Watchmen TP International Edition mini-series slot flawlessly into the continuity. I have only read two of the collected editions so far, but each one has contained superbly scripted stories, with excellent artwork. The stories have managed to capture the feel of the original, add depth to the back-stories, and contribute their own twists to the overall plot, while being excellent, occasionally brilliant, stories in their own right. The stories in this volume contain secret origins for Nite Owl, Rorschach, Dr. Manhattan and Moloch, as well as for Ozymandias's plot to not destroy the Earth. They are all written by J. Michael Straczynski, and if anyone can deal with the complexities of quantum physics and this story, it is he - see his Babylon 5 TV series for the proof.

This superbly-written and illustrated story contains the secret origins of Nite Owl and Rorschach, and tells of their first meeting and subsequent friendship and teaming-up. It is a fairly straightforward and extremely entertaining story, but there are many aspects of it that will resonate for readers of the wider story. This story makes the scenes in the original Watchmen series of Rorschach's turning to the `dark side' much, much sadder, for example. It also gives us a look at why Nite Owl has a `thing' for girls with red hair and tight costumes...
