‘Before Watchmen’ Character Designs and Pages Surface [Art]

A number of press outlets have been invited to visit the DC Entertainment offices in New York and Los Angeles to inspect material pertaining to Before Watchmen, DC Comics’ controversial expansion of Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ hugely popular and influential superhero graphic novel. Among those news sources is Buzzfeed, who was permitted to take photographs of prepared artwork that includes a number of character designs by artists Amanda Conner, Darwyn Cooke, Lee Bermejo, Andy Kubert, Joe Kubert, Jae Lee and John Higgins. Based on the material you can see after the cut, it seems that whatever its creators or critics have to say about the ethics of Before Watchmen, the project will come with some very handsome artwork.Click all images for larger versions.
