The most anticipated comic book to drop in recent memory and it certainly lives up to the hype. Picking up as a direct sequel to the highly critically acclaimed Watchmen series from the eighties Doomsday Clock is set in the nineties and sets up this epic crossover event in a fascinating way. Artist Gary Frank does a spectacular job of emulating the art style and tone from original series making it feel like you are reading something that is already a classic.
The Newer Mutants story arc continues in part 2 with plenty of action and drama plus we see a couple of exciting new additions to the roster. If you can get past the painfully '90's Rob Liefeld style artwork complete with the avoidance of drawing feet you will have fun with this book and be transported back in time in true sweet nostalgic Cable fashion. Colourist Jesus Aburtov lights the shots brilliantly in this issue which certainly elevates this book up a notch with colour pallets that mirror the retro tone in the artwork.
