Watchmen: Chapter XII - page 23


Panel 1: and a similar inkblot image on Rorschach’s mask.

Panel 4:  If you look closely at Dr. Manhattan’s foot in this panel you’ll notice that he is standing right on top of the wing of the dead butterfly from the previous chapter, as if he were the one who stepped on it and killed it.  This image foreshadows the outcome of this confrontation between Dr. Manhattan and Rorschach – Dr. Manhattan will kill Rorschach just as easily as the butterfly was killed.
