A Year of Cool Comic Book Moments – Day 63

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 superhero sex…


In Watchmen #7, we get one of the more famous scenes in the series, where former superheroes Dan “Nite-Owl” Dreiberg and Laurie “Silk Spectre” Juspeczyk attempt an intimate encounter, but it does not go so well. They fall asleep together on the couch and Dan has a freaky dream…

That sets up the later scene, where Dan and Laurie decide to go out superheroing for the first time in forever, and after they save the day, suddenly, well, things go much better than before…

Definitely, the “moment” is the costumes line, which is where writer Alan Moore makes it clear for the folks in the cheap seats that he is making commentary about the fetishistic nature of superheroes.

Dave Gibbons is out of this world in these pages.

Great scene, with that hilarious off kilter climax.
