Default has anyone here read the "Before Watchmen" comics?

I'm not really a comic guy, but I just recently read the Watchmen graphic novel...it's amazing, I now understand why the fans of it didn't feel like the movie lived up to it what it is. I still think the movie is great though...

anyway, I see there were prequel comics released but they were not written by Alan Moore...I am wondering if they are any good or worth looking into.

anyone?

i read watchmen, but had no interest in reading the prequels...i heard they were ok though, but nowhere near the level of the original graphic novel.

if you're not a comic guy, no. I haven't heard any are above "ok to good". Nothing great.
