My Review: 5 out of 5 stars

I'm so freakin excited about this! this is one of my most anticipated graphic novel release.

I love the colors,how they're illustrated and the panels looks so beautiful and absolutely brilliant!some are drawn in a way you can see the big picture in small panel/chunks.

The stories told in a memoir sort of fashion,back and forth,lots of flashbacks here and there truly enlightened me how the group Minutemen was formed and the next generation of crimebusters.It cleared up a lot of things for me especially when it comes to watchmen.This made me want to pick up Watchmen and read it all over again.

I like how detailed every panel looks. Byron Lewis's story panels the way it's illustrated that moment he looks down in the building was absolutely fantastic and breathtaking!I felt that I'm there with him.I didn't like Dollar Bill his exposure is so commercialize! and Sally she's so overly dramatic (sometimes) although I'm really proud of Laurie Jane (her daughter),her story line during the woozy hipster era are so colorful and amazing it captured that high feel effect well.I love Ursula,she's so kick ass!her jump scenes greatly executed, truly an avenging angel!her story's so amazing,touching,traumatic and tragic but alas! Justice! best served cold pwahaha! I quite understand the comedian better I mean he's an interesting character alright.I somewhat agree with the other characters about Mason Hollis just want to lighten his load although without it there would be no story,prequel,enlightenment,before anything I'm really glad in some ways I knew what happened.Thank you!

I definitely highly recommend reading this before watchmen especially if you're already a big fan of the series or if you simply want to check it out and have an awesome read.
