Vaughan & Chiang's "Paper Girls" Builds a Familiar Yet Disconcerting World
Here is the latest cool comic book moment in our year-long look at one cool comic book moment a day (in no particular order whatsoever)! Here‘s the archive of the moments posted so far!
In honor of the opening of Watchmen at the end of the week, here’s a special “Watchmen moments” week!
Today we look at the effects of dealing with Rorschach too long..
Watchmen #6 is the Rorschach spotlight issue, depicting Rorschach’s prison therapist trying to get in touch with Rorschach. Instead, he learns that you really ought not to go messing around with Rorschach’s mind, because it is a terrible place to visit.
Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons do a virtuoso performance on this issue-long look through the tortured psyche of Walter Kovavs, the man known as Rorschach, but perhaps better known as the man CONTROLLED by Rorschach.
By the end of the issue, instead of bringing Walter Kovacs out of Rorschach, the doctor instead found HIMSELF brought INTO Rorschach, in a terrifying ending to the issue…
Again, if you could, please keep the discussion either specific to this moment or general to Watchmen as a whole, as there’s a whole week to discuss other moments from the series! Thanks!
