Issue #9: Watchmen: The End is Nigh (2009)

Comics on Consoles returns for its first new issue of 2017!

In this issue, we inch the doomsday clock ever closer to midnight by profiling 2009's WATCHMEN: THE END IS NIGH. As the sole dedicated console game ever created out of the legendary limited series by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons, THE END IS NIGH aims to tell a story worthy of the characters and setting...even though the game itself may not be a great fit for such a legendary, engaging and subversive work.

Listen as host CHRIS CLOW tells the story of what led to the creation of this WATCHMEN gaming experience, and stick around for the discussion portion for an in-depth chat with this issue's special co-host PETER APERLO: an author and screenwriter who was charged, along with the WATCHMEN film director ZACK SNYDER, with creating much of what appears in the final game.

So, download the show, crack open a can of your favorite beans, and listen to the latest issue of COMICS ON CONSOLES!

Theme music by BenSound.com. "Desolation Row" written by Bob Dylan and performed by My Chemical Romance from Watchmen: Music from the Motion Picture.
