  • Watchmen Adaptation

    backstory jumps around his past in a way that makes sense to his perception of time (Gardner 188). He keeps repeating the dates as he keeps going back and forth between many different times of his flashback, just like how his mind works (see fig. 1 and fig. 2). There were also many scenes that were intercut with each other, rather than getting their own specific sections like in the graphic novel.

After getting revenge on his henchmen and seeing him run into the men’s washroom, Rorschach goes in after him. In the graphic novel, there is ambiguity left to what happens to Big Figure – the illustrations only offer the image of blood pouring out from under the door, and the reader had to have been paying attention to…
