DC Comics will launch Rorschach, a new 12-issue series written by Tom King with art by Jorge Fornes in October, the company announced.  The new series, to be published under the 17+ Black Label imprint,  is written in the present day,  in which Rorschach is one of a pair of assassins trying to kill the first candidate to oppose president Robert Redford in decades.

King describes the series as “a very political work,”  in the vein of the original 1986 comic series and the recent HBO Watchmen show.

The new series will launch on October 13, the same date as the planned release of previous Watchmen spin-off series Doomsday Clock: The Complete Collection (see "'Doomsday Clock: The Complete Collection'"). The issues will feature card-stock covers and retail for $4.99.  The first issue will feature an A cover by Fornes and a variant by Jae Lee.
