COMICS: Cover To OZYMANDIAS #2 Shows The "World's Smartest Man" Has A Kinky Side

Check out this great cover for Ozymandias #2 - part of DC's "Before Watchmen" series - by Jae Lee, which seems to suggest old Ozy can be a bit submissive when the mood takes him!..

Interesting. I must say, regardless of whether these controversial prequel are a good idea or not, I am looking forward to seeing what origin stories they have come up with for the characters. Ozymandias #2 is written by Len Wein with art by Jae Lee, and hits shelves in August.

I like the 70's bra, nice and perky...

Not the biggest fan of the prequel decision.

But these creative teams can't be beat, and I don't want to miss out on something that may be huge in it's own right.

Worst case scenario: The prequels suck and the original limited series will still be awesome.

PatientZero, still whining I see? ..Yes, we do..or I do anyway. Why, what is amiss in this one?

Nope, it was written by mortals I think.

Honestly I always thought Ozymandias was gay.

Isn't he gay
RorMachine - 5/14/2012, 2:36 PM
A typo - god/good which I overlooked. Hardly cause for alarm is it?
johan02 - 5/14/2012, 2:56 PM
WOW! I cant believe how many people are all "but he gay" or "isnt he gay?" GOD DAM IT DIDNT ANY OF ACTUALLY READ THE ICONIC CLASSIC??!!! OR is it just that your all braindead and don remember what happened in one of the most important comic books EVER?
I know Nomis already said it but the ONLY thing having to do with Ozymandias being gay is Rorshachs suspicion. "Veidt possible homosexual" POSSIBLE.

Ok, now that thats out of the way, the art work looks great but I am very doubtfull. Yeah they cant take away from the original, but a prequal can DEFINITLY kill the legacy. Look at Star Wars, 15 years Star Wars was legendary. Now days, it bearly taken seriously

Veidt is GAY?????? To think all this time I just thought Rorschach was making a joke about Veidt's liberal ideas and his extravagant style. Well, thanks for setting things straight guys. I'm really glad I was the only person in the room when I read "possible homosexual".

Well, jeez there goes my favorite book. Ready for others to interpret.

I don't like it. It's not the worst thing they could do, though.
NorrinRaddical - 5/14/2012, 3:46 PM
yes yes and yes. LOVE Jae Lee. Ror you've been on fire with the Watchmen art scoops! makes it harder and harder for me to NOT read them when they come out
BlindLemonShemp - 5/14/2012, 3:47 PM
this is horseshit... shock-comic horseshit... whoever is in charge of DC must be a super-gay 13 year old with brain damage... thats the only way i can make sense of this company anymore...

DC becoming a sick joke of the company they used to be... one horribly pointless idea after another...

I Support Alan Moore... I support the Original Watchmen Books... I Will NOT be supporting this... Piss on you DC.. Piss in your face...

This actually makes a great deal of sense for the character of Adrian Veidt.

The original Watchmen showed clearly that he had a fascination with expanding his horizons, both mentally and physically. We know that he took drugs in the far east and that he frequented Studio 54.

For him to be interested in exploring the "darker" side of sex make is both reasonable, in keeping with the era, and utterly within the established bounds of the character.

Gays = for gay marriage
Obama = for gay marriage
Obama = gay

At minimum his policies suck. And I bet he hates comics :)
