These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Fanon Discontinuity: Some of the original's more zealous fans are ignoring these titles. They are led by Alan Moore. Even Dave Gibbons, despite encouraging the writers and artists, clarifies that the only thing he considers canon is what he and Alan Moore worked on together.
Dave Gibbons : "As far as I'm concerned, what Alan and I did was the Watchmen graphic novel and a couple of illustrations that came out at the same time. Everything else - the movie, the game, the prequels - are really not canon. They're subsidiary. They're not really Watchmen.They're just something different."
Money, Dear Boy: Widely assumed to be the reason for this series' existence.
Rewatch Bonus: Upon re-reading the Darwyn Cooke penned series, there's two characters named Greg. In Minutemen, Greg was a soldier in Eddie's company who survived an ambush with him and helped take him to safety. In Silk Spectre, Greg is Laurie's boyfriend, and mentions his dad was in the military. The Comedian notes that he and Greg's dad are war buddies from '44. The Comedian mentions Greg was from California, where Laurie and her Greg were raised. Minutemen!Greg may be the father of Silk Spectre!Greg, both have the same hair color and similar jaw structures.
Smurfette Breakout: Silk Spectre is the best-loved of the Before Watchmen series by the old-school Watchmen fandom.
