Geoff Johns Announces Doomsday Clock Skip Month as Rorschach Investigates the Batcave
Monday, December 18, 2017
- In a tweet, Doomsday Clock writer and Chief Creative Officer of DC Geoff Johns shared a tease for the next issue in the Watchmen-meet-the-DC Universe event, as the two universes finally meet on the page.
In the panel shown, the new Rorschach seems to find himself in a well known DC landmark, in the form of Batman’s base of operations beneath Wayne Manor, the Batcave.
A look at #DoomsdayClock issue #2 coming 12/27 from the great @1moreGaryFrank and @bdanderson13 as the two worlds collide! There will be a month break in shipping after the first 4 issues, between #4 and #5, to keep the quality and page count as high as possible. Hope you dig it! pic.twitter.com/rqnHADBJ0g

Seems like a rough judgement there from Rorschach, eh?
However, one of the other interesting elements that Johns throws out there in this tweet is that there will be a skip month between issues 4 and 5 of Doomsday Clock, to allow for the art team of Gary Frank and Brad Anderson to catch up and keep the same art team throughout the series – or as Johns puts it, to ‘keep the quality and page count as high as possible’.
So it seems we’ll take a bit of a break between issues, but at least we’ll get a consistent art and no fill in artists. Yet.
The next issue of Doomsday Clock comes out December 27th, 2017.
DC and Watchmen characters collide at last! The story that began in DC UNIVERSE: REBIRTH #1 comes to a thrilling and unexpected crescendo in the pages of this titanic twelve-issue series by the all-star team that brought you BATMAN: EARTH ONE and SHAZAM!
In this second chapter: The Dark Knight discovers another relic from the Watchmen world. Lex Luthor pays a devil’s bargain. And killer clowns trek through Gotham seeking a madman.
