Dave Gibbons Watchmen #2 "Cemetery" Cover
Original Art (DC, 1986). "And I'm up while the dawn is
breaking, even though my heart is aching. I should be drinking a
toast to absent friends instead of these comedians
." -- the
by Elvis Costello. This chapter revolved around the
burial of Eddie Blake, The Comedian, in the New York Cemetery. The
tale was built around four flashbacks to the actions of Blake, and
Rorschach's unhindered attempts at unraveling who was his murderer.
What more can be written about the Watchmen
already been duly noted in the past 26 years? For many, the
mini-series represented a transcendent work of
genius that showed how a comic book narrative could be constructed,
as well as a revolutionary take on a post Cold War world that no
longer worships superheroes. Watchmen
was a turning point in
comics history, one of only a handful of stories that shattered the
limits of what the medium could achieve. Visionary co-creator Alan
Moore used the series to deconstruct the traditional superhero
mythos in a nihilistic way, never seen before. Dave Gibbons'
magnificently moody and somber cover opener for "Absent Friends"
has an image area of 10" x 15", and the art is in Excellent
condition. From the Shamus Modern Masterworks Collection.
