Watchmen: Chapter II - Page 3


Panel 1:  This image of Veidt, Manhattan, Dreiberg, and – hidden just behind Dreiberg – Moloch looking over Blake’s coffin and set above the title “Absent Friends” is ironic considering the fact that none of these adventurers and former adventurers would really call one another friend, at least not at this point in their lives.

Panel 2:  Sally Jupiter’s remark that Byron Lewis is in “the bughouse in Maine,” is ironic considering Lewis’s adventuring identity was Mothman.

Panel 3:  “He (Blake) said he’d bury us,” is another ironic comment on Blake’s death.

Panel 4:  The bottle of perfume on Sally Jupiter’s nightstand is a bottle of Nostalgia, again symbolizing the desire to return to simpler times while also showcasing how pervasive Adrian Veidt’s reach is in this world.
