35 years on from his death at the hands of Doctor Manhattan, Rorschach seemingly returns to the streets this Tuesday as DC Black Label launches its new Watchmen sequel series Rorschach, and you can check out a preview of the first issue right here…
It’s been 35 years since Ozymandias dropped a giant interdimensional squid on New York City, killing thousands and destroying the public’s trust in heroes once and for all. And since that time, one figure in a fedora, mask, and trenchcoat has become a divisive culture icon.
So what does it mean when Rorschach reappears as an assassin trying to kill a candidate running against President Robert Redford? Who is the man behind the mask, and why is he acting this way? It’s up to one detective to uncover the true identity of this would-be killer-and it will take him into a web of conspiracies involving alien invasions, disgraced do-gooders, mystic visions, and yes, comic books.
Rorschach #1 goes on sale on October 13th.
