Upon hearing that DC Comics is releasing prequels to Watchmen, members of Twitter were predictably catty. DC’s move certainly isn’t without controversy. Alan Moore was a little less than pleased with the news. Neil Gaiman wrote on his website, “Mostly, I’m just glad that they didn’t do it 25 years ago. We’ve had 25 Watchmen-Prequel free years.” And then there was Twitter. The place you go when you want a sassy one-liner, snarky complaint, or references to the sexually-explicit versions of classic children’s books characters in Moore’s Lost Girls.

Our 30 favorite reactions to “Before Watchmen” are collected here. Thanks to ComicsAlliance for tipping us off to about a third of these (and you can see some different ones on their list).
