Week 4 Relationships

Here we have two lovers about to embrace into a kiss, their heads leaned slightly into one another, their bodies posed for the big moment. The background a ball of flame signifying their love. That is the Awesome of the Watchmen. Brain child of Alan Moore, writer and Dave Gibbons, illustrator the Watchmen are considered to be in a league of their own. The Anti Heros of the DC Universe. But what i love about this panel is the illustration, both the style and the content. If you ever have had the pleasure to read the Watchmen novels; I call them novels despite the fact they're comics, they're more than that though, you will notice that many read more like a film. And that was the original point Moore and Gibbons was trying to make. 

I have included a side by side of panels from the graphic novels and from the 2009 film.
