Jack Kirby’s work space.
Absolutely my favorite and most inspiring image I’ve seen in a while.
I love how unpretentious and no-b*llsh*t it is. It’s a plain desk, with a plain chair and a plain side chair, all of which are beat up from use and covered in ink. It faces a corner, one that’s covered in unorganized comics. It’s inspiring to see the desk that held the home of creation for countless characters was so practical. Nothing fancy about it. Just a place to sit down, shut up and do the work.

DC Comics Announces Before ‘Watchmen’ Prequel Miniseries
The worst kept secret in comics recently has been the upcoming DC ‘Watchmen’ prequel titles, but that has all changed today. DC’s The Source Blog has officially announced that this summer will see the release of seven ‘Watchmen’ prequel talents but some of the biggest talent at DC and in the comics industry. The seven Watchmen prequel titles will included:
- RORSCHACH (4 issues) – Writer: Brian Azzarello. Artist: Lee Bermejo
- MINUTEMEN (6 issues) – Writer/Artist: Darwyn Cooke
- COMEDIAN (6 issues) – Writer: Brian Azzarello. Artist: J.G. Jones
- DR. MANHATTAN (4 issues) – Writer: J. Michael Straczynski. Artist: Adam Hughes
- NITE OWL (4 issues) – Writer: J. Michael Straczynski. Artists: Andy and Joe Kubert
- OZYMANDIAS (6 issues) – Writer: Len Wein. Artist: Jae Lee
- SILK SPECTRE(4 issues) – Writer: Darwyn Cooke. Artist: Amanda Conner
Each new issue that is released will feature a two-page back-up story called Curse of The Crimson Corsair that will be written by original series editor Len Wein and with art by original series colorist John Higgins.
‘Watchmen’ is considered the best graphic novel ever written and some comics fans consider it sacrilegious to come back and add onto such a complete and perfect work of art. I might feel differently if this was a direct sequel, but being a series of prequel miniseries with amazing talent working on them I’m actually very excited to see the early beginnings of the established characters that we have seen in ‘Watchmen’. Some of these miniseries could truly be outstanding and will make for something different and interesting to read this summer when Marvel is putting out nothing but Avengers books.
