"BEFORE WATCHMEN has been an unqualified success."--Mtv Geek"BEFORE WATCHMEN: SILK SPECTRE is a heartfelt, gorgeous story."--Newsarma "MINUTEMEN is a stunningly gorgeous piece of comic book art, from the first page to last. [Cooke is] an insanely talented writer and artist with a perfect grasp of comic book layout, innovative structures, nuanced characters, without sacrificing a sense of humor. MINUTEMEN is right at the top of the very best modern comic books have to offer."--Mtv Geek "Darwyn Cooke has certainly delivered. MINUTEMEN is a gorgeously crafted comic book"--IGN --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Highly recommended to any graphic novel fan (I don't suppose there are any who haven't read 'Watchmen').
The “Before Watchmen” project consists of several mini-series, and includes:
‘Minutemen’ (six issues) - Writer/Artist: Darwyn Cooke
‘Silk Spectre’ (four issues) - Writers: Darwyn Cooke and Amanda Conner. Artist: Amanda Conner
‘Comedian’ (six issues) - Writer: Brian Azzarello. Artist: J. G. Jones
‘Nite Owl’ (four issues) - Writer: J. Michael Straczynski. Artists: Andy and Joe Kubert
‘Ozymandias’ (six issues) - Writer: Len Wein. Artist: Jae Lee
‘Rorschach’ (four issues) - Writer: Brian Azzarello. Artist: Lee Bermejo
‘Dr. Manhattan’ (four issues) - Writer: J. Michael Straczynski. Artist: Adam Hughes
‘Moloch’ (two issues) - Writer: J. Michael Straczynski. Artist: Eduardo Risso
‘Dollar Bill’ (one-shot) - Writer: Len Wein. Artist: Steve Rude
These 37 issues draw on the classic “Watchmen” publication in many important ways, seeking to expend, enrich and deepen that fictional universe. While “Before Watchmen” lacks both the originality and genius that defined Moore and Gibbins’ work, it’s nonetheless a serious and substantial contribution to the saga (and is amongst the better of the instalments of ‘The New 52’ franchise).
This particular book brings together the 10 issues which, separately, concern the Minutemen and Silk Spectre. If you enjoyed “Watchmen” and you’re interested in reading more about the characters and the dark and often grim world they occupy, then I recommend this book. There are three other collections of 'Before Watchmen' (available in both hardback and paperback).
If you like your comics on the darker side of life, this is for you. It also works great on Kindle
