    Description

    Dave Gibbons and John Higgins Watchmen Les Gardiens (French Edition) #4 Cover Painting Nite Owl Original Art (DC/Zenda, 1987). When reprinted just a year later in France, Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons' groundbreaking 12-issue Watchmen series was condensed into a 6-issue hardback series with all-new painted covers by the original art team. Here elements from issues #7 and 8 are used on this cover, including the golden statue of the "Golden Age" Nite Owl, and the photo of the 1940's heroes. The Doomsday Countdown Clock from the back covers has been included here, set to two 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 and re-attached to a board. There is a very small ding in the top margin. A nice frame would make it hard to notice. Otherwise, in Excellent condition.
