Spinning out of Watchmen, DC Universe: Rebirth,  and Batman/The Flash: The Button, Doomsday Clock rewrites the past, present, and future of the DC Universe and it all starts here! Collects Doomsday Clock #1-6.

My Take on the Book
I had never read any of the Watchmen series of books before but this was a great start, and I will definitely be looking to read more in the future. The author has done a great job at pulling together a compelling story that will keep you on the edge of your seat from beginning to end. The writing in this book was strong and compelling and the story is one that continues to draw you in from beginning to end. I was glad that this book was a stand alone book that did not require that I had read anything about the Watchmen in the past. It is a book that keeps on giving from start to finish and by the end you may just find yourself wanting to read this again.
