Nite Owl BEYOND by SeanMcFarland Nite Owl BEYOND by SeanMcFarland
Hey Watchmen! Yeah, this aint real by any stretch, just doin' ideas for the inevitable "after watchmen," over at the line.


The ranks have now swolen to an amazing 16 artists, so that's cool. Check em all out, they're all kinds of wonderful!

Good art technically, but in my opinion, what happens after Watchmen's ending should NEVER be depicted beyond a basic headcanon summary of what one would think/prefer happened to the world and the new "utopia".

Thanks. I would be surprised at this point if DC didn't eventually do a follow up, but much like the "Before," stuff it wouldn't be for me.
I don't really know why but I keep coming back to this piece and trying to work out more of the Beyond Watchmen Universe. First off, I can see 'Silk Owl' and 'Night Spectre' from Mic?s piece fitting into this setting. Or at least the idea of Dr Manhattan & Laurie having a kid that would be an adult by this time. Dan and Laurie would also have a kid, but the new Nite-Owl is not related, rather having a similar relation between Dan and Hollis Mason.
I also like the idea of Ozymandias building something comparable to the DCU's Brother Eye system, possibly with Adrian uploading his own consciousness into the 'net.
Then, in the vein of Punisher 2099, we have Rorschach Beyond, a conspiracy nut that finds the Journal and adopts his persona and mission.
And because I am incapable of leaving out a random mashup factor, I think that to rival the Comedianz gang, there's likely a group of anarchists out there calling themselves the V's.

heh, don't they go by "anonymous," these days?

But YEAH! Those are some wild ideas Mike, could totally see them working. Cyber-Veidt seems especially cool to me. :)
Indeed they do, which is part of why I added them in. And also Gordy the Knot-Boy would be worked in somehow :D

Yeah the line has gone pro! Some nutty level of talent kicking around.
I love the Comedianz/Jokerz mashup. Perfection.
