Saturday Morning Watchmen[edit]

Since we have so few articles in the template, I see no harm in adding Saturday Morning Watchmen to it. You are right WesleyDodds, it is a parody, not an adaptation. Perhaps a misc. category. We don't want so few articles that the template gets deleted again. Cheers! Scapler (talk) 11:35, 11 March 2009 (UTC)

Creators?[edit]

how about Len Wein being credited as a creator?

No... at best all Wein's work did was serve as an insperation for the unique things Moore created. - J Greb (talk) 13:29, 19 July 2009 (UTC)

Before Watchmen[edit]

Now that the prequel series has been announced and confirmed, how about adding it to the template right now? NP Chilla (talk) 23:13, 1 February 2012 (UTC)

How about not?
The section at the main article cover whet is know. We aren't going to start a separate article on nothing, especially since it still falls under WP:CRYSTAL. Nor are we going to create stubs for the comics. Same reason. Without the articles there is nothing to add to the template.

The article's already been done. Make of that what you will. NP Chilla (talk) 12:08, 3 February 2012 (UTC)

At the moment, we have articles on each of the Before Watchmen comics (that have been released, anyway) but not articles specifically on all of those characters. So we have a Before Watchmen: Silk Spectre article but not a "Silk Spectre" article. In a few days, the Ozymandias comic will be released, so we could potentially have one article on "Ozymandias" and one on "Before Watchmen:Ozymandias". This is not without precendent... but here's a suggestion: Why not have separate articles on each of the characters (with one on the Minutemen as a whole), and merge the "Before Watchmen:Character" articles into the appropriate character article. We could then keep the Before Watchmen article itself for information about the comics series as a whole (and the one-shot epilogue), but do we need the seven articles about each individual line? Anyone object to this happening, or would we rather it was all kept as it is? Kaid100 (talk) 09:08, 1 July 2012 (UTC)
