About Dave Gibbons

David Chester "Dave" Gibbons (born 14 April 1949) is an English comic book artist, writer and sometimes letterer. He is best known for his collaborations with writer Alan Moore, which include the miniseries Watchmen and the Superman story "For the Man Who Has Everything". He was an artist for the UK anthology 2000 AD, for which he contributed a large body of work from its first issue in 1977. Gibbons was born on 14 April 1949, at Forest Gate Hospital in London, England, to Chester, a town planner, and Gladys, a secretary. He began reading comic books at the age of seven. A self-taught artist, he illustrated his own comic strips. Gibbons became a building surveyor but eventually entered the UK comics industry as a letterer for IPC Media. He left his surveyor job to focus on his comics career. Gibbons earliest published work was in British underground comics, starting with The Trials of Nasty Tales, including the main cover illustration, and continuing in cOZmic Comics produced by Fe

MattMurdock C'est étonnant cette conversation entre ces deux personnages, amis, mais que tout sépare, et que d'ailleurs le dessin éloigne en permanence dans cette planche pour bien signifier leurs différences.

Philemon Cette case centrale est très caractéristique de l'art de Moore dans Watchmen, cette façon de glisser des éléments graphiques qui "parlent", qui font écho au texte. Ici, cela tourne autour de la question "Future ?" On retrouve les slogans de Rorschach "The end is nigh" qui annoncent effectivement le dénouement, ainsi que les affiches du concert des Pale Horse au Madison Square Garden (que l'on retrouve dans une des fameuses splash pages du dernier chapitre), et déjà la suite avec le flacon de parfum Nostalgia... Et le personnage de Rorschach, a déjà quasi disparu de l'écran... Du très grand art !
