Time for a little more insight about the devil you know.
During today’s DC Entertainment-All Access panel at Fan Expo in Toronto, the publisher announced a new addition to the Before Watchmen line. In the two issue Before Watchmen: Moloch, writer J. Michael Straczynski and artist Eduardo Risso will amaze and astonish with the origins of Edward William Jacobi. Just who is Moloch the Mystic, and how did his own fate entwine itself so inextricably with that of the Minutemen?
Here’s our first look at the first issue, due out in November. Is this a young Edward Jocobi’s first encounter with the mystic arts?
Joining the roster of seven mini-series, BEFORE WATCHMEN: MOLOCH will be written by current BW: NITE OWL, BW: DR. MANHATTAN and upcoming SUPERMAN: EARTH ONE Vol. 2 writer J. Michael Straczynski with art by Eduardo Risso (SPACEMAN and 100 BULLETS).
If you don’t know who Moloch is, he’s a villian in the Watchmen universe. In fact, you may have recently seen a glimpse or two of him in BW: COMEDIAN or BW: OZYMANDIAS. And now, you’re about to learn a lot more.
BEFORE WATCHMEN: MOLOCH #1 will be on sale November 7 and issue #2 will be available December 26.
