From Publishers Weekly

Jun 17, 2013 – The much-hyped Before Watchmen project attempts to tell new stories featuring characters from the landmark Alan Moore/Dave Gibbons graphic novel. Since pretty much all that needed to be said about these characters can be found in the original Watchmen, the result seems like a corporate-mandated product rather than a creative endeavor. The spotlight here is Ozymandias, aka Adrian Veidt, the world s smartest man. The bulk of the volume chronicles Veidt s life, from his years as a childhood prodigy through his pivotal role in Watchmen, ably scripted by comics veteran Len Wein and illustrated by Jae Lee (The Dark Tower), who turns in some impressively staged art, with every panel a striking tableau. The volume is rounded out with the Wein-scripted one-shot featuring 1940 s hero Dollar Bill, with stunning art by Steve Rude (Nexus); and the entirety of a backup featuring the pirates who appeared in the original, also written by Wein and drawn by Watchmen colorist John Higgins. Art notwithstanding, the latter material is superfluous, but the main event is worth a read, even if it s not essential for one s collection.
