It actually adds and advances the story and while you see the big twist coming miles away you are very happy with the execution of said twist.
I am very skeptical about prequels in general, and even more when they try to expand stories which I feel are closely detailed already(you know how well explained the universe of Watchmen is, along with it's characters). But I'll probably read these prequels eventually.
