Personally, I am enjoying Before Watchmen. A friend of mine runs a comic shop, and the customers who swore up and down they would not buy it, because of DC's alleged lack of respect, and alleged soiling the sacred grounds of artistic integrity, and so forth, are the ones buying these books in the droves. Ironic. My local comic shops are selling out of Before Watchmen every week, within hours of being placed on the comics shelves. What is there not to like. DC put together some great creative teams on these books. Yes, Alan Moore is a very tough act to follow, but these works are in no way disrespectful of his creations. Darwyn Cooke on The Minutemen and Silk Spectre, is doing some of the best work of his career. Adam Hughes doing the Dr. Manhattan book, covers and interior art. Come on, how often do we see AH! do a entire book?! This has got to be DC's most ambitious project in ages.

I'm enjoying too and I'm pretty surprised. Really digging Nite-Owl and Amanda Conner's work on Silk Spectre.

My favorites are The Minutemen and Ozymandias. I am a huge Darwyn Cooke fan, and I think his work here is very reminiscent of his New Frontier masterpiece. And I am really looking forward to the Adam Hughes Dr. Manhattan story line. Can't wait for the hardcover collections of this stuff.

Pass, none of it 'feels' in the Watchmen Universe, even Cooke's, and that one's the best of the bunch.
It'll look silly on your shelf with all these BW trades leading up to the thinner classic :-(

Not feeling it. Was not crazy about Watchman until I really think it was a pretty good dark story. This is just filler crap. Should have left it alone. Not buying it at all.

Before Watchmen is exactly as good as it could possibly be without Alan Moore's involvement.. That said, its disappointing on every level.

I liked the art of Rorshach, and I liked the writing in Ozymandias... I absolutely LOVED

{SPOILER} the twist in The Comedian, where he's not Kennedy's assassin, as shown in the film.

Of all the hardcovers, I'll pick up Comedian/Rorshach, but that's it.
