Darwyn Cooke tells the tragic tale of the Minutemen, assembled to fight against evil in a world spinning out of control. Can these heroes from completely different backgrounds and with completely different attitudes on crime come together? Or will they fall apart before they begin? Then, Cooke and Amanda Conner take an look at the Silk Spectre's early years with her overbearing, Super Hero mother, chronicling her journey down the winding path toward becoming her own kind of hero. This volume collects BEFORE WATCHMEN: MINUTEMEN 1-6 and BEFORE WATCHMEN: SILK SPECTRE 1-4.
