Watchmen: Chapter VI - page 25


Note:  Again, Higgins utilizes various hues of red to accentuate this harrowing scene with Rorschach. 

Panel 7:  Rorschach stepping out of the dressmaker’s with the fire fully engaged behind him can be seen as a phoenix-like symbol, as this whole incident is the turning point where Kovacs transforms into Rorschach, reborn in an episode of blood and fire like the mythical Phoenix.

Panel 9:  Again, the “butterfly” Rorschach blot is evident on the table, symbolizing the metamorphosis of Rorschach, as just recounted by Kovacs.
