Watchmen: Chapter IV - Page 19


Panel 1:  Another sign of Dr. Manhattan’s disinterest in humanity is the revelation here that he never told his father that he was not dead, after the military informed him of his son Jon’s death soon after the accident with the intrinsic field experiment.

Panel 4:  Does the fact that Dr. Manhattan thinks of Edward Blake as “deliberately amoral [emphasis mine]” mean that he looks upon himself as unable to have any morality because he is no longer human?

The woman hugging Blake is the one he impregnated and then killed, as readers saw in Chapter II, Page 15.

Panel 6:  Note the drop of sweat that has fallen onto the smiley face button (just beneath the lowest caption box), just where the blood splattered on it in the first chapter.
