"One more from the same issue," he said in the next tweet, accompanied by pencils of an unmasked Reggie Long taking safe haven in Ozymandias's retreat in Antarctica.

Billed as a sequel to Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons' Watchmen, Doomsday Clock, which debuted in November 2017, has been notoriously plagued with delays. In October, Frank revealed he had finished pencilling the 12th and final issue, and in November, colorist Brad Anderson said he was "Getting close to wrapping up this bad boy."
Doomsday Clock #12, by Geoff Johns, Gary Frank and Brad Anderson, goes on sale Dec. 18 from DC.
