This week’s issue of Flash closed out “The Button” crossover with an epilogue that teased DC’s next big event, “Doomsday Clock”. The new event series, announced by DC Comics earlier this week, will further explore the mystery of DC Rebirth as the Watchman finally make their presence felt and known. Brought to us by a creative team consisting of writer Geoff Johns and artists Gary Frank and Brad Anderson, the series is expected to hit shelves this November.
There has been no synopsis released yet, but based on the promotional material shown above, one can expect a conflict of epic proportion between the members of the Watchmen and the Justice League. Just the thought of seeing the likes of Dr. Manhattan and Superman, Nite Owl and Batman, Silk Spectre and Wonder Woman, or any other character pairing you can think of, all together sounds incredibly exciting. It's what fans have been hoping for ever since Batman first found that distinct button in his Batcave.
According to Johns, “Last year, the DC Universe confronted the legacy of Watchmen in Rebirth the way Watchmen confronted the legacy of superhero comics three decades ago…It’s all paying off this November with DOOMSDAY CLOCK.”
There have been many mysteries surrounding the Watchmen and the events leading up to DC’s Rebirth, and this event promises to finally put some of those questions into better focus.
