MAD’s ‘Botchmen’ Explores The Lighter Side Of ‘Watchmen’

In all the excitement surrounding Before Watchmen, we’d completely forgotten that DC Comics had already published a new Watchmen comic by creators other than Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons. It was called Botchmen, and it happened all the way back in 2009, in issue #499 of a magazine called MAD.As MAD’s blog The Idiotical reminds us, the long-running humor mag lampooned the classic graphic novel a few years ago, around the time of Warner Bros. and Zack Snyder’s Watchmen feature fim adaptation. The “Botchmen” strip was created by Desmond Devlin and Glenn Fabry with colors by Melvin Coznowski and a cover by Mark Fredrickson. Auspiciously, Dave Gibbons and original Watchmen colorist John Higgins contributed a variant cover for an New York Comic Con edition of the issue.

Check it out, it’s pretty good!
