We continue our look at the career of the late Darwyn Cooke by reading “Before Watchmen: Minutemen,” as proof that a great creator can elevate their work beyond publisher sales gimmicks. This comic examines the career of the Minutemen, a group of heroes who represented a collective effort toward the greater good a generation before the Watchmen. We talk about the fleshing out of the cast, the grey areas of heroics, and the uselessness of capes. Plus, we talk for a long time about all the trailers that have come out in the last few weeks.
