Image
just a weirdly haunting image.

Bad. Ass.

Image
this was a big 'oh shit' moment for me.

that's about as handsome as you can look with your face covered.

The original colour version of this panel on p6 (my next tattoo in a few weeks :D).
I remember just staring at it for ages when I first read the GN - our first look at that mask, the level detail in the background...Dave Gibbons; I love you :P

Obviously I've quite a few more but will need to hunt for some pics.

That's one I would have put up. It conveys so much without a word. (I was really pleased with how well it was done in the film too).

The following panel on the next page too - Rorschach on the roof, writing in his journal.

Here are a few of mine.

I probably quote this one the most of any part of Watchmen. The words on top of Blake's grin, it's horrible but just so awesome.

Image
This one's my desktop right now.

Image
The look on his face in this panel is the reason why I don't think that Veidt should be called the comic's "villain."

The one after the Archie sex. The nude silhouettes against the window.
Of course blake through the window.

I had a friend that saw watchmen and he said, as soon as Dr. M killed Rorschach I just sat in my seat and said "You Dick."

One of my favorite set of panels are the two leading up to and the 'Veidt-asshole-smile'.
Gotta love it.
