The Mime and the Marionette, who we were first introduced to all the way back in Issue #1, take center-stage in our preview of next week's Doomsday Clock #6.

Writer Geoff Johns and artist Gary Frank team up once more as we reach the halfway point of their DCU/Watchmen-centric 12-issue miniseries. This time, though, the focus is on the mad power couple, as we learn what brought them together back when they were children and what led them to the violent lives they live today. Plus, if that's not enough, Mime and Marionette also have to deal with a certain Clown Prince of Crime, who's none too happy to see a pair of pretenders in makeup stealing his shtick.
