The clock ticks ever closer to midnight as the countdown to DC Comics 12-part event Doomsday continues. Writer and DC Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns is the focus in the first trailer for the comic book series that follows up on the crumbs he dropped in last years DC Universe: Rebirth #1 about how Watchmen‘s Doctor Manhattan is potentially behind the causes of the New 52 reboot and years of the heroes lives, relationships and lives being lost.
In the video Johns explains the backstory for how this event came about and his collaboration to find the right story with artist Gary Frank. Johns mentions their love for Watchmen, how they plan to bring the two worlds together and how the United States election helped spark the story.
Doomsday Clock #1 arrives on November 22.
