Geoff Johns Reveals REBIRTH Followup DOOMSDAY CLOCK

The mystery surrounding the Button, which started in last year’s DC Universe: Rebirth #1 special, will continue on in a miniseries called Doomsday Clock this November.

Revealed through an interview with Syfy Wire, Geoff Johns, Gary Frank and Brad Anderson will collaborate once again to deliver this series. Johns clarified, however, that Doomsday Clock “is not a Watchmen sequel” and will strictly be a standalone story.

“It is all about the story; it is only about the story,” said Johns. “There are no crossovers. No watered down one-shots or mini-series on top of this one. This is a standalone story. There is only Doomsday Clock. We had no interest in doing a crossover with this. We didn’t want to see Doctor Manhattan facing off against Superman in Action Comics, with all due respect. That is not what this is about. It is about something different … It will have an impact on the entire DC Universe. It will affect everything moving forward and everything that has come before. It will touch the thematic and literal essence of DC.”


We’ve already got a little taste of The Button storyline, which will conclude with this week’s The Flash #22, but it seems the mystery will only be fully explored in Doomsday Clock this November.
