DC Comics Before Watchmen has been under a scathing attack by purists and critics of the way DC treated Alan Moore, creator of the Watchmen. However, most reviewers have not even read the comics before attacking.

A Google search on the situation between Alan Moore, the eccentric creator of the Watchmen, and DC Comics would fill a novel. Many opinions exist on the matter, most of which are negative towards the way DC Comics handled the situation. Unfortunately for DC Comics, the decision to make a set of miniseries based on the characters in the Watchmen showing adventures before the graphic novel has been met with criticism.

Most of the Beyond Watchmen series are now on their second issue of release, out of seven for each series. However, this did not preclude a few reviewers for some major web sites. Laced with profanity, inaccuracies, and trying to be cute by somehow channeling Moore, the reviews are proof as to why Lagspike.tv has come into existence. Reading the supposed review, it was obvious the author of the article had yet to read a single issue, instead parroting what other critics have stated about the series.

This is not a review.

Lagspike.tv, whether it is a televsion series, a movie, a video game, or a comic book, vows to actually read, watch, or play the material before giving a brutally honest review. Lagspike will not pull punches, but our experiences will be our own, not taken from some other critic elsewhere and regurgitated for consumption.

This author has not read the comics involved, and thus will not be reviewing them until he has. This is the way it should be done.
