Watchmen: Chapter I - page 15


Panel 6: The Pale Horse jacket is again symbolic of the “end of days” feeling during the 1980s.

Panel 7: The remark, “Musta changed his deodorant!” gives us another clue into Rorschach’s personal habits, which are less important than his pursuit of criminals.

Panels 7-9: The 9-grid layout also allows the writer and artist to create a sense of timing within the book. By having this very rigid panel layout, it sets up a rhythm within the readers’ minds, something that is not possible in a comic that does not employ such a rigid layout.
