1986 - The Watchmen House Ads


  1. Really cool. I believe Warner Bros. recreated them for the movie campaign.

  2. I never saw these in any comics, but I remember seeing some on display in comic stores after the series was finished.

    They're mostly cool, although oddly the Rorschach one is, for me, the weakest one (odd because he was my favourite character). I don't know, it just seems like a corny quote, sort of on-the-nose, compared to the dark, layered monologues in the series. I assume Moore wrote all these (I assume he would have insisted) so maybe he kind of rattled that one off before breakfast.

    Great Gibbons art all around, though.


  3. Hey David, I believe you might be right. Looking at the Rorschach one, it looks like it was a poster...
