Even though Dark Nights: Metal is currently unfolding, DC has decided to make a bold move by launching yet another event series in the form of Doomsday Clock. Sure, “event fatigue” is a very real thing, but when you factor in that the latest project coming to us by way of the all-star team-up that is Geoff Johns and Gary Frank, and that the last year and a half of Rebirth storytelling have led up to this, well, then I’ll most definitely welcome such a 12-issue series with open arms.
Oh yeah, there’s also the Watchmen factor.
