Watchmen: Chapter IV - Page 17


Panel 1:  The fact that Dr. Manhattan has chosen to relieve himself of a good portion of his suit, leaving him with something akin to a gymnast’s leotard, is a sign that he is moving farther away from humankind. 

Panel 3:  As noted above, Laurie – in 1985 – has the same earrings that Dr. Manhattan gave to Janey in 1963. 

Panel 8:  Dr. Manhattan’s comment that he is “standing still” is a remark on how he no longer ages, but is also a statement to the fact that, in this panel, he is standing still while staring at the stars.
