    Description

    Dave Gibbons and John Higgins Watchmen Les Gardiens (French Edition) #1 Cover Painting Comedian Original Art (DC/Zenda, 1987). The French Edition of Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons' seminal 12-issue series Watchmen was reprinted as a 6-issue hardback series instead, with each tome including two issues of the original 1986 run. As such, all-new covers were created by Dave Gibbons and John Higgins. Each cover combined elements from the two issues included, and featured the familiar Doomsday Countdown Clock from the back cover (reset to five minutes until midnight). All of these covers were reprinted in the 1988 Watchmen Portfolio also. This first cover features the Comedian. Produced in graphite, ink, and mixed media paint with an image area of 12.5" x 17.5". The 15" x 20" board has been "skimmed" off of the original illustration board. There is a crease running down the center of the image area. A nice frame would make it hard to notice. Otherwise, in Excellent condition.
