Artist Dave Gibbons Says 'Watchmen' Video Game Is Canon


Posted January 14, 2009 - By Stephen Johnson

If you're the kind of person who takes the integrity of fictions created by your favorite comic book series personally, you should probably seriously examine your priorities. But before you do all that soul searching, rest assured: The upcoming Watchmen: The End is Nigh series of video games is based on bonafide Watchmen canon material.

Although Alan Moore didn't write the games, here's what original Watchmen artist David Gibbons said about the material's authenticity:

"Alan and I have always resisted doing any sort of back-story to the Watchmen graphic novel - at various times it's been suggested that we could do the Comedian's Vietnam War Diaries or Rorshach's journal, which we thought would be a bit dopey. But the precedent is, at the time the original comics came out, Mayfair games did a role-playing game that Alan helped write bits of, and it's completely canon, so this game uses a lot of that less-well known material."

The game will be available for download in March. For more details,  check out the interview at the link below!
