Love it or hate it, the controversial prequel series Before Watchmen is here to stay—and the journey continues with the latest issue of the six-part Minutemen run. Want to check out the first five pages now?

The second issue picks up with Hollis Mason, the original Nite Owl, still battling to get his tell-all autobiography out to the masses. Needless to say, there's some pushback from the other heroes featured in his tome.

It's actually pretty interesting to see the early 1960s era, as we find Hollis literally watching the world change around him.

Crafted by Darwyn Cooke, this book is an interesting glimpse into the era where the world of Watchmen diverged from our own, and Hollis is a pretty good protagonist to follow through the transition.

"They tell me that these new guys can do amazing things," Mason says, in Minutemen #2. "They say one of them can even catch bullets. Me? I always had to just dodge them, the old-fashioned way."
