mysterioususername's Before Watchmen: Moloch #2 - The Eleven-Thirty Absolution; The Curse of the Crmson Corsair: Wide Were His Dragon Wings, Conclusion review

Did we say "Before Watchmen" we meant during it.

I didn't know this would be a two issue mini and I have to say I'm a little disappointed. All things considered the writing was nice, the art was good, and this issue did a great job of making Moloch very sympathetic. But still it's for the best it ended here as the issue leaves little about Moloch to tell. This issue follows Moloch after he decides to redeem himself and find a job working for Ozymandias(who honestly looks a bit weird in this art style) of all people. Anyone who's read the original story can guess where this is heading. It ends just as everyone expects as this comic actually goes into the events of the Watchmen and paints a new light on several events. Mostly it serves to add Moloch's perspective to his last scene in the original, and might of retconed some stuff. Honestly I'm not sure how I feel at this change as it retroactively robs Moloch of a lot of sympathy he had, but this comic and the last issue more than make up for the loss. Still, overall it doesn't detract from the issues quality and I certainly don't regret picking this one up. So check it out if you enjoyed the first and want some more.
