COMICS: J.G. Jones to Provide Art for THE COMEDIAN Prequel Series

The lads over at Bleeding Cool have seemingly confirmed that the artist will lend his talent for one of the prequel mini-series to the classic graphic novel Watchmen, featuring the sadistic vigilante The Comedian.

Recently, there have been a lot of reports regarding the prequel series to Watchmen, which is currently in development. One of them reported that the prequel series will consist of four mini-series, with several names being tied to them. Among the names reported was J.G. Jones, and Bleeding Cool has apparently confirmed that the artist will indeed be involved in one of the mini-series featuring The Comedian.


We’ve heard J.G. Jones linked to Watchmen prequel rumours before. We’ve had reports of Darwyn Cooke writing a prequel mini-series starring The Comedian. And now I’ve come across a rather reliable source that says J.G. Jones is drawing The Comedian. So...do we have a Darwyn Cooke/J.G. Jones Comedian mini-series for next year? It appears we may.


Personally, I think J.G. Jones is one of the best artists on today's comic book industry, yet I still am not sure on this idea of Watchmen prequels. However, what do you think? As usual, share your thoughts on the spot below.

If JG Jones is involved, expect his mini-series to be out a year later than the rest of them.

No need.

I agree with batmanrises, if they are doing it, they should get it finished before they release any, or else we may never get to see it.

This is such a terrible idea

Alan Moore wrote enough material about the loathsome Comedian.

Dr Manhattan returns from Mars, 2011: Bring THAT on!

Moore and Gibbons both stated that the would have loved to do a Minuteman story to tie in with Watchmen, too bad they'll never get the chance...

@batmanrises, good point, but he's still one of the top artists out there. I'm still wishing he and Morrison would finish up their Marvel Boy run, such an underrated mini series.

don't bother unless alan moore is involved.

EditNinja -dr manhattan mars story would kick ass.
but i agree with only if moore was in on it.

this is completely unnecessary

@batmanrises it's hard to understand because he worked like a madman on Wanted, he did insane revisions to entire panels and things like that at the deadline without pay, and worked pretty quickly. anyway i like his work, especially his covers which are always a treat

This is still completely up to the writers to make it work.

Hobo Alan Moore is going to be sooooo pissed!
Shadowelfz - 12/6/2011, 10:18 AM
I wonder if he's actually going to make a joke this time?

JG Jones is a talented artist but his deadline issues bring him down a notch

If any prequels or sequels to the Watchmen were ever to be done, why weren't they done back in the '80s when the series first appeared? As popular as the Watchmen were, that would have been the logical time to do any related materials. Doing it now reeks of desperation- a company whose sales are down so far that they're looking to something from nearly thirty years ago to spark their sales. It's just like Hollywood remaking popular movies from years ago, desperately trying to whore out their past to make a buck today.
