Panel 3:The remark “Here be tygers” by the police
officer refers to the quote from the William Blake poem that gives this chapter
Panel 9:The officer’s reference to Rorschach as an
animal plays on the manner in which Rorschach has previously described the city
in animalistic metaphors (. . . city is
dying of rabies.Is the best I can do to
wipe random flecks of foam from its lip?), while also referring once more
to the Blake poem, “Tyger Tyger” from which the chapter title comes.
