Watchmen: Chapter XII - page 17


Panel 1:  The meta-commentary continues from Veidt, as he states that the new world he hopes usher in does not need “…obvious heroism, making [Dreiberg’s] schoolboy heroics redundant…”

Panels 2-4:  The remarks by Veidt in panels 2 and 3 – “…usher in an age of illumination…” which will lead to humanity turning “…instead towards the [light]…” – is also a commentary on what is occurring in these panels, as Veidt and the others turn, in panel 3, toward the light being emanated by Dr. Manhattan, who has quickly reincorporated himself just outside the window of the main hall of Karnak.
