Every day here at Doom HQ we receive tons of tips from our readers about really cool stuff from the world of geek, as well as promotional materials for new films, comic books, collectibles, and much more. While we do our best to bring you as much of it as possible, we don’t always have enough geek manpower available to cover it all on a daily basis. But we hate the idea of all of this really cool stuff wasting away in our inbox. How could we NOT cover it? Hence why we’ve resurrected our long-defunct column Bits Of Doom, now rebranded and revamped as Doom Digest, a collection of easily digestible bits of news, videos, photos, and other goodies.
Today: Game Of Thrones season finale recap and a celtic rock song, Before Watchmen begins, a rockin’ Reading Rainbow theme song, Disney-Pixar stamps, plus Bits Of Doom.
Back in February, DC Entertainment confirmed that they would be releasing Before Watchmen, a new comic book series collection that will serve as a prequel to the critically acclaimed graphic novel Watchmen.
There will be 8 different miniseries under the Before Watchmen banner, each with a 4- to 6-issue run, which will begin this Summer. Now, the first issue of four of the 8 miniseries is now available for pre-order — Before Watchmen: Minutemen, Silk Spectre, Comedian, and Nite Owl.
The issues are available for pre-order as single print issues or as combo packs, which will include the print edition along with a code for the digital version.
The Social Blend podcast is back, and this week with a bit of a Geeks of Doom tang to it. Fellow Geeks of Doom contributor, and Associate Editor Hunter Camp aka MK2Fac3 joins us on the podcast this week – and we focus a lot on the latest details on Watchmen, Superman: The Man of Steel, Game of Thrones, and more.
Our first geek diversion in the show is looking at the new trailer for Iron Sky, which leads us into a whirlwind discussion of some of the work by Zack Snyder, including Sucker Punch and more. We debate the merits (or lack thereof) of the Before Watchmen prequel comic series from DC Comics.
Also we take a look at the latest news for Doctor Who Series 7, and the recent legal blues surrounding Ghost Rider.
Outside of our geek culture concentration, we also discuss some other news on the latest Social Blend, including Rick Santorum and the current Election news; and the recent passing of Whitney Houston.
Earlier today, my overlord and master Empress Eve posted an article telling all of you about the “it’s really happening, isn’t it?” Watchmen prequel comics miniseries collection entitled Before Watchmen coming this Summer from DC Comics.
Well folks, I have been tasked to bring you my opinions on the creative teams and titles and to put it shortly, this whole thing is hilarious to me.
