Read the Doomsday Clock Ashcan



So, you think you’re clever, do you? Let’s see about that. There’s very little we can say about what awaits you in November, but we’ve managed to hide something away that you’re going to want to see. It’s one final treat for you before the clock strikes midnight and DOOMSDAY CLOCK arrives.

We have to be very careful who we share it with. It’s intended for only the brightest and most dedicated of you—the true believers who understand that good things are worth a little work. Therefore, we’ve stashed it away, and hidden the clues to unlocking it within a series of images that we’ll be sharing over the weeks ahead. Those images will show up in a variety of places. We can’t say exact where and when. (Though you may want to sign up for our newsletter and make sure you’re following us on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.)

This page will serve as your spot to keep track of everything. It will be updated below in real time throughout the hunt and will let you know what new clues may have been discovered…but only after one of you finds them. When you think you’ve discovered a new piece of the puzzle, share it in the comments. If we see your comment, and if you’re the first to identify it, we’ll give you credit when we update the page with that clue.

We encourage you to also use the comments to discuss the hunt in general, and to let us know if you’re stumped. If it turns out many of you are, we might update this page with a hint.

To start, we suggest you look closely at the above image. And remember, it will all make sense in the end…

And the end is here.
