The Abyss Gazes Also. Rorschach Origin Story Review
Watching The Watchmen Episode 7. In what is our best (or at least fourth best) episode thus far, Tom and I discuss the Rorschach origin story issue: The Abyss Gazes Also. We see how Alan Moore uses psychology to discuss what horrific event could happen in a child’s life to cause them to become a vigilante. We both absolutely loved this issue and think you will find it as fascinating as we did. Throughout, we discuss how Moore uses the black and white solidity of a Rorschach mask to depict the personality of the unhinged superhero. This is a great look at one of comic books greatest heroes and we recap the story in full.
This one is really not to be missed.
