Doomsday Clock #5 Will Release in May, DC Comics Confirms

DC Comics has confirmed Doomsday Clock #5 will be out on May 30th, only a few days later than its original release date of May 23.

Earlier today, DC’s website listed the issue’s release date as June 20. However, it appears as though that was a mix-up. Writer Geoff Johns has since addressed the confusion on his Twitter and released a few preview pages of artist Gary Frank’s drawings for the latest issue.

“Gary [Frank] and I are working diligently to deliver a thought-provoking and beautifully drawn series that’s unlike anything else on the shelves today,” Johns said in a statement. “It’s incredibly important to us to keep up the quality of Doomsday Clock, but also to deliver it on the bimonthly schedule and we intend to keep our word.”

“Issue #5 will begin the countdown for the DC Universe as the worlds of the Watchmen and DC collide full-on. Expect to see characters known and obscure step into the spotlight. And the strangest team-up you’ve ever seen,” he added. Doomsday Clock #5 will sic Mime and Marionette on Gotham City as Rorschach struggles to escape Arkham Asylum.

Debuting in November 2017, Doomsday Clock continues themes introduced in 2016’s DC Universe: Rebirth #1 and in the subsequent crossovers Superman Reborn and The Button. It serves as a direct sequel to Watchmen, the seminal 1986-1987 comic series by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons.
