Geoff Johns explains to us today at SDCC what the Doomsday clock is all about that will be coming late this year.
If there was any remaining doubt that Watchmen's Doctor Manhattan is the unseen antagonist behind the events of DC Rebirth, Johns officially put those to rest when he confirmed that Doomsday Clock is a story about Superman finally confronting this all-powerful foe. Johsn said that Manhattan was really the only character with the means to bring about such massive changes to the fabric of the DCU, though he did admit to being very nervous about drawing the cast of Watchmen into DC continuity. He noted that he didn't want Manhattan's inclusion to be a mere gimmick.
Johns also revealed that it will be a 12 issue mini series and that the series will take place a full year ahead f the rest of DC's ongoing books.
Look for Doomsday Clock #1 to hit stores on November 22, 2017.
