Watchmen: Chapter XII - page 14


Panels 1-5: where we see Bubastis and Dr. Manhattan have both followed a path to Veidt that leads to their bitter end.

Panel 4 is obviously a direct callback to Chapter IV, Page 8, panel 4, where Jon Osterman was disintegrated in a similar intrinsic field subtractor.

Panel 5:  Note the skull and crossbones on the warning sign beside Veidt, calling back to the Black Freighter comic while further linking Veidt with the protagonist of that story.  Also, slipping in from off-panel right, we can see Laurie standing and watching Veidt, melting snow dripping from her, forming a pool of water at her feet.
