'There is good and there is evil, and evil must be punished. Even in the face of Armageddon I shall not compromise in this'

Rorschach is a character from the wonderful graphic novel by Alan Moore (art by Dave Gibbons): Watchmen.

If you haven't read it, I cannot recommend it enough. I bought it a couple of years ago and I'm bloody glad I did.

A movie of this should be released in 2009. It's directed by '300' director Zack Synder and the trailer looks amazing:


It probably won't make much sense unless you've read the Graphic novel, which again I say 'Go read it...Now!!!' :D

stupid question, what is watchmen about? i can't find any plot synopsis or a copy of it or the film. so just a breif summary would be nice

Fantastic picture, i grew up with this graphic novel for 17 years since i was 14 when it with Killing Joke were my first graphic novel purchases and it blew me away, made me think and dazzled me.

The movie did a fantastic job and i saw it 4 times in theaters, the ultimate cut on Blu-Ray is the best version which makes it a more authentic experience

Rorschach: I heard a joke once: Man goes to doctor. Says he's depressed. Says life is harsh and cruel. Says he feels all alone in a threatening world. Doctor says, "Treatment is simple. The great clown Pagliacci is in town tonight. Go see him. That should pick you up." Man bursts into tears. Says, "But doctor... I am Pagliacci." Good joke. Everybody laugh. Roll on snare drum.

I would give 5 trillion stars for this painting, because Rorschach is one of my favorite characters in history. :D

I do believe Rorschach watches the Watchmen. :D
Aw, now you've gone and gotten yourself a spot on my watchlist. :3 XD

This is wonderful! I too was completely blown away when I first read the GN.

Im in a photoshop class, and for our final project we have to create a calender with a theme. for my theme i chose DC Comics characters. I wanted to know if i could use your art for photo manipulations for my project.

That sounds cool. When I was at school we didn't have photoshop classes. In fact I'm not sure the computer was invented yet XD

Yeah, you can use my art. I'd be honoured :hug:

I loved the movie but, I must admit, I am a bit confused.
It's not like Batman Begins and The Dark Knight where you don't have to read the comics to understand.
Luckily, I just ordered the graphic novel so I expect that will shed some light on my confusion. XD

Anyway, I LOVE this!
