    Description

    Dave Gibbons and John Higgins Watchmen Les Gardiens (French Edition) #2 Cover Painting Dr. Manhattan Original Art (DC/Zenda, 1987). The seemingly omnipotent Dr. Manhattan is featured on this original cover art that combines elements from issues #3 and 4 for the original run of 1986's Watchmen. This French language edition condensed the 12-issue series to a 6-issue hardback edition with all-new covers by the original pencil/inker and colorist. On this issue, the Doomsday Countdown Clock from the back covers has been set to four minutes until midnight. 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 across the top left corner, just barely into the blank part of the image area, and a minor rip in the top margin. A nice frame would make these hard to notice. Otherwise, in Excellent condition.
