A Year of Cool Comic Book Moments – Day 62
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 perhaps the inspiration for the master plan in the book…
The second issue of Watchmen sure had a lot of foreshadowing, didn’t it?
Perhaps the best part of it all was this flashback sequence that Ozymandias has while at The Comedian’s funeral…
There are tons of little threads here, but most important are the belitting of Ozymandias by The Comedian, which clearly struck a nerve with Ozymandias as well as Captain Metropolis’ pathetic cry, “Someone has to save the world!”
What a beautiful piece of foreshadowing by Alan Moore, and Dave Gibbons does a very nice job making the heroes look cheesy. Also, the transitions from present to past were also handled nicely by Gibbons.
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!
