DAWN OF THE BRAVES They keep our cities safe, our world unharmed, they are our greatest heroes!
NEW WATCHMEN #9 Written by ED BRUBAKER Plot by GLOBAL HONORED Art by NICK DRAGOTTA Cover by BRIAN BOLLAND "Some will win. Some will lose. Some were born to sing the blues..." The President has been assassinated on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. New elections to be held this year in hopes of restoring order to this great land. But as of now, civil unrest runs rampant. Trust is all but lost. Hope is following closely behind. Even our so called heroes are looked upon with suspicion. The candidates have declared their intentions. Adrien Veidt is among them. The media sensation, the self made superhero with a billion dollar bankroll promises to lift America on his shoulders back to greatness while bringing its costumed heroes in under his cape. And like Teddy Roosevelt before him, he claims to carry the biggest stick - the universe's most powerful game changer, Doctor Manhattan! General Frank Rock recovers from his gunshot wound while attempting to save the president. The ol' Sarge doesn't like what has been going on in Washington and isn't sure who he can trust. He doesn't fully believe the intel he is receiving about rogue Kryptonians and their plan to overtake the country. To get to the bottom of it, he himself declares his candidacy. Sometimes to get the job done right, you have to do it yourself. Meanwhile famed gonzo journalist Jack Hunter publishes an editorial on the Rolling Thunder website warning Americans to not trust what they are being told by their government or mainstream media. That the aliens aren't the bad guys. The true super villains are the powerful manipulators in dark offices in D.C and the Pentagon. He may be labeled as a crazy conspiracy theorist, but he is certain that a Comedian is trying to silence him. And until he feels safe, he is staying hidden. But before the Comedian can find Jack Hunter, he himself has been found. In a dark tenement in Baltimore, the Spirit tracks down the man responsible for the murder of Central City's mayor, of the Octopus, and even his own! Finally he will get answers. But what he finds is a desolate Edward Blake. Resigned to his own end. "You see Colt, it wasn't personal. I am simply a dog at the mercy of his master. I sic on command. A rabid dog perhaps, but with good breeding and well trained. And it is time to let this dead dog lay. You never did see it coming did you kid?" And with that, two shots scream through the night. The first puts Edward Blake's head on the table. The other, a hole through the Spirit's gut as his body hits the hardwood floor. His last vision will be a smoking gun from the shadows and those beautiful red lips. He should have listened to the Spectre. Who can you trust? Don't forget to vote in this month's Democratic Primary!
