"Insofar as I know, this is it for the Before Watchmen books," he told PREVIEWSworld.

"[DC co-publisher Dan DiDio] had a very specific vision of the cycle he wanted to investigate, and never once mentioned anything about this turning into some kind of long-term franchise.

"Not to say that might not happen someday, but I don't think it's on his or DC's radar at this juncture, and if it's not on theirs it's sure as heck not on mine."

Straczynski has been writing the Nite Owl, Dr Manhattan and Moloch miniseries as part of the controversial prequel project.

He is currently focused on the revival of the Joe's Comics line and the forthcoming Superman: Earth One vol 3.

DC senior vice president of sales Bob Wayne has previously hinted that the franchise's future is uncertain.
