( [READ] Before Watchmen of 4 ) Æ Darwyn Cooke – thereeldoctor.co.uk
D read and respected a lot of those who #were doing this had done so I figured I would give this a chance This book nearly does it #doing this had done so I figured I would give this a chance This book nearly does it story is good they took the right approach by basically telling this story with as little reference to Watchmen as possible and it works The art is eyepopping I have always been an Amanda Conner booster since The Pro and her work here is awesome I love her version of the sixties I don t like the spirit of this book the spirit of Didio s DC where they strip mine their glory days this doesn t hold any candle "to the original but it is well done " the original but it is well done saved this one ntil last because Silk Spectre annoys the crap out of me Old and young I just don t care for the Jupiter women And Laurie as a teenager is just as brash impulsive and petulant as she is when she s an adult Sigh Three books I love the balance in Silk Spectre Laurie is sure whiny teenager but given the fact that she s trained and sort of being controlled
her mother was the first Silk Spectre here emotions and choices are justified or at least nderstandableThe core plot of this series is present in almost all YA novels nowadays a female teenager protagonist who wants to rebel and be free while at the same time wants to make the world a better place Along the story she meets a pretty boy someone with a nice chest she can lean to he makes her weak Problems then arise but in the long run this young lady emerges triumphant and strongBut like the other Before Watchmen titles Silk Spectre is appreciated when you are already familiar with the original Watchmen material. Es of WATCHMEN but before then she was a young girl trying to follow in her mother’s. ,by her mother

"The Endof The Book A Two Page Surprise All In "endof the book a two page surprise All in an interesting read This now is the story of the second Silk Specter Laurie Jupiter It is funny but to me it didn t ite work Manly it missed the darkness of the original series and just became a story about a rebelious teenagerAlthough it has some nice aspects to it The Comedian is well made you can really see his insanity and the relation between Hollis and Laurie is interesting However It just is serious enough for the watchmen niverse
