A Year of Cool Comic Book Moments – Day 65

by  in Comic News Comment

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, in honor of opening night, we look at perhaps the most famous scene from Watchmen.

Enjoy!

In Watchmen #11, Nite-Owl and Rorschach confront Ozymandias, who they have discovered is the “big bad” in this scenario.

He sits and details his elaborate plan to save the world. It’s some of the best written exposition dialogue I can recall seeing. Well done by Alan Moore.

Finally, we get THE line, when Nite Owl confronts him about his plans…



Amazing line and a great moment for the series.

This leads to a brilliant page by Dave Gibbons including the amazing human interaction between the newsstand owner and his young nemesis.


Such an amazing sequence and a great genre twist.
