Well Johns certainly mimics Rorschach's narration. Though I question instilling 2017 hot button topics in a 1992 setting. Or are we supposed to think that because of the giant squid incident, Trump became president 25 years earlier?

So, you're saying they're more concerned with baseline nostalgic feels than making this story a more spirited successor to the original novel?

Because that would be both unsurprising, and force me to make the obvious comparison to James Tynion IV.

Ah, Sporkbot, nothing you have said is even remotely what this issue is about. What this issue does is give the reader quite a few fun teasers of what is going on as "Rorschach" gathers a small team so that he and Adrian Veidt can go in search of Dr Manhattan who has taken off for "another galaxy". And since you asked, yes, this does feel like a "spirited successor to the original novel".

I look forward to Spacedog's obligatory posts trying to convince us that Johns is the Anti-Christ and must be made to pay for his sins. :P

Geoff Johns, the Anti-Christ? Not even close. :roll: Johns is just a writer whose work habitually oscillates between average and mediocre, promoted beyond his level of ability. The Anti-Christ is way cooler.

So...the pages I read DIDN'T contain obvious references to modern day political talking points when it's supposedly taking place in (albeit alternate) 1992? Because I could've sworn that's what I read.

My other post was trying to figure out Jack Charlemagne's single picture response.

I'm pretty sure I didn't read that. :smt102 I don't recall them saying who the president is at all, and I secretly hope it's Reagan like he was still president in 1991 in alien nation. :lol:

President Redford (who won the 1988 election) is mentioned a couple times.

I don't know, maybe it's because I never paid attention to political and sociological issues in the 90's, but some of the stuff mentioned feels very much like 2017 stuff. Kind of like the Supergirl TV show, where Maggie's Dad talks about "them building a wall", when their President is the kindly alien Wonder Woman, not the straw-haired yam...it's just...feels kind of off.

I was thinking the same from the third panel of the first page - the "Make America "Safe" Again".

While it's a play on a particular orange bastard's slogan, I never felt anything similar again for the rest of the book (because the theme quickly gets set and it's unlike anything that's happened (irl).

I see they got rid of Etrigan's "Rhyming Demon" status. All the more reason to respond with "Meh."

Geoff Johns, renowned for his Shakespearean style of writing and superb grasp on character development, putting words in the mouth of Ozymandias - "the smartest man on the planet". The sheer absurdity of this situation...
