Wednesday marked the launch of BEFORE WATCHMEN: COMEDIAN, and while old Eddie Blake might see the world as a dark and twisted place, we personally like to take a look at the positives—namely the existence of totally awesome comic creators like Comedian writer Brian Azzarello.
“This is going to sound really weird, but there's a certain innocence to him that I haven't done in a character in a really long time,” Azzarello revealed about SPACEMAN protagonist Orson to USA TODAY. “Definitely in 100 Bullets, a lot of the characters were street smart. He's not. He's a bit naïve about things — not stupid but not as worldly."
Orson was created for a space program to Mars that never happened. Now, the hulking loner is making his way in a decrepit world dreaming of the life he was promised, only to accidentally get involved in a celebrity kidnapping scandal.
