Smith Passed On Writing “Watchmen” Prequel

Kevin Smith has dabbled in a lot of comics over the years. But he says that when asked if he wanted to write a Watchmen prequel for the upcoming series, he declined.


“Talked to Jim [Lee] and Dan [DiDio] about it two years ago. Only passed because I’m not Alan Moore, sadly. If I was Alan Moore, I’d be all over it. As Kevin Smith, I’d likely just make Bubastis “big pussy” jokes and have Rorschach wet himself,” Smith tells Bleeding Cool.

The Watchmen prequel series will hit stores this summer.
