Before Watchmen: Ozymandias and Crimson Corsair

Another great installment in the Before Watchmen series. It focuses primarily on Ozymandias and fleshes out why he has such disdain for Dr. Manhattan, it also touches on his childhood and why he became a masked crime fighter. Also included in this collection is Crimson Corsair, the story of a pirate, the Flying Dutchman, and the price one pays to get his soul back. In the original graphic novel, Watchmen, the little boy on the street corner is always reading this comic. It's really cool that they brought it to life here. Also as a bonus, there is a little section on the rise and fall of Dollar Bill, it's not huge, but it's very enlightening.
