Description

A lovely nine panel page with no text from Watchmen by Dave Gibbons.

Dan goes for an early morning stroll to look at his Nite Owl suit after awakening from a nuclear bomb explosion nightmare and a failed fling on the couch with Laurie. Dan feels powerless and impotent... time to try some goggles on...

A great page containing the nine panel grid and no text whatsoever. It's signed and inscribed by Dave Gibbons, "To John, with thanks and best wishes, Dave Gibbons" as this was originally a gift from the artist to the colourist John Higgins. John has also signed the page in pencil.
