Is Dave Gibbons' Venom #11 Variant Better Than Watchmen? Joe Quesada Thinks So

Following the historic peace accords reached when global entertainment superstar Donny Cates met with renowned comic book wizard Alan Moore to settle the Watchmen vs. Venom debate, Watchmen artist Dave Gibbons has produced a variant for Venom #11. Gibbons recently apologized for the influence Watchmen has had on comic books, but that influence is clearly strong in the variant cover revealed by Marvel executive Joe Quesada Tuesday.

Never one to shy away from provoking controversy for comic book sales, Quesada also started a new contest:

Hmmm. If this cover is better than Venom, and Venom is better than Watchmen (or at least tied), then that means this Venom cover is also better than Watchmen, right?

Venom #11 will probably come out in February.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
