Quote Of The Day: Dan DiDio on Before Watchmen

Posted by Tom Mason Categories: Editorials, DC Comics

Before Watchmen

"I hope he looks at them with an open mind and a chance to understand this is a love letter to what he created, and more importantly that the strength of his work is allowing other people to grow and tell other stories which will hopefully inspire other creators along the way. In the way he was inspired by the creators when he was younger, we're hoping these ideas and these books are inspiring new people, so that we continue to grow the comics business as a whole."
