Watchmen: Chapter VII - page 11


Panel 6:  Moore & Gibbons waste nothing in this series.  Even apparent throwaway lines from the newscast like the one referencing tenement fires, as Laurie turns the television on, are pertinent.  This line foreshadows the spark that will get Dan and Laurie back into their costumes.

Panel 8:  True to form, as soon as Dan “mentions ornithology [Laurie] sort of switch[es] off” and tunes Dan out so that she can hear what the news has to say about Rorschach.
