    Description

    Dave Gibbons and John Higgins Watchmen Les Gardiens (French Edition) #6 Cover Painting Ozymandias Original Art (DC/Zenda, 1987). Ozymandias and his genetically-engineered pet lynx Bubastis are flanked by images from the original 1986 Watchmen issues #11 and 12. This all-new cover was created for the French language edition that reprinted the originals in a hardback format. The Doomsday Countdown Clock from the original back covers has been included here, set to straight up midnight. All six of the original covers for this French language edition were also reprinted in DC's 1988 Watchmen Portfolio. 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 very small ding in the top margin. A nice frame would make it hard to notice. Otherwise, in Excellent condition.
