A Year of Cool Comic Book Moments – Day 64
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 some toilet humor, Watchmen-style…
In Watchmen #8, we see the true meaning of what Rorschach said in Watchmen #6 – “I’m not locked up in here with you. You’re locked up in here with me.”
At the end of Watchmen #7, Silk Spectre and Nite-Owl come to break him out of jail, but in the meanwhile, an old adversary of Rorschach, the diminutive villain Big Figure and his gang are out to kill Rorschach in his cell during the middle of a riot.
So far, Rorschach has managed to easily outmaneuver them all and kill them all save Big Figure, and now he is free out of his cell and on his way to take care of Big Figure when Spectre and Nite-Owl show up.
That leads to the following, courtesy of Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons…
I suppose the last panel would be the “moment,” if pressed.
Damn, Rorschach is one chilling figure.
