Watchmen: Chapter IV - Page 13


Panel 1:  This newscaster looks eerily similar to Clark Kent who worked for WGBS news in the Superman comics during the 1970s, which is appropriate considering the fact that this newsman is breaking the story of Dr. Manhattan’s existence – the Superman of this world.

Panels 8-9:  Janey’s comment that Jon has “arrived” is ironic considering his quantum perception of time, something he emphasizes in the following panel when he says, “I feel as if I’ve been here all the time.”
