‘Watchmen: Chapters I & II’ Official Teaser Trailer: New Animated Adaptation Of Alan Moore’s Iconic Graphic Novel

Release date: Rumored August 13, 2024 for Chapter I and early 2025 for Chapter II.

About the comic: Watchmen was created by writer Alan Moore, artist Dave Gibbons and colorist John Higgins. It was published monthly by DC Comics in 1986 and 1987 before being collected in a single-volume edition in 1987.

Watchmen originated from a story proposal Moore submitted to DC featuring superhero characters that the company had acquired from Charlton Comics. As Moore’s proposed story would have left many of the characters unusable for future stories, managing editor Dick Giordano convinced Moore to create original characters instead.

And the rest is history as Watchmen would go on to become one of the most important and best-selling graphic novels of all time.
