DC Gets a New Website, Fans Get a New Look at ‘Before Watchmen’

The DC Universe, its heroes and their costumes apparently weren’t the only things that DC Entertainment had in the works for a reboot over the past several months — the DC Comics website has also gotten a makeover. Chief among the new reveals is a look at some Before Watchmen promo art, though the official site redesign will probably ring much less controversial among fans.The company announced the overhaul of the site-along with those for VertigoComics.com and MADMagazine.com-in a press release yesterday, noting that the intent was to offer fans “Exclusive new content, integrated community and social media features, and in-depth character franchises,” and also including “key navigation areas for movies, TV, games, shopping and community.”

Perhaps of greatest interest to DC fans is that the site will now allow commenting through Facebook and Twitter. The publisher’s site has been without any sort of commenting feature for some time now.

To entice readers, fans and online rubberneckers to check out the publisher’s new online digs, one piece of new content time for release with the update of the site is a new piece of promotional art related to their most controversial upcoming project.

Artist Lee Bermejo has a new Before Watchmen image, “the first group image of the BEFORE WATCHMEN characters,” according to the press release.

Additionally, Watchmen has its own “franchise hub” now, and an entry in the company’s small but presumably growing “characters” section, which discusses the original graphic novel itself rather than the ensemble cast.

There’s much more that’s new at DC Entertainment’s trio of sites, so go poke around and see what you think. And say, you can now let DC know exactly what you think, thanks to the new interactive features…!
