Watchmen Posters

Just came across this promotional poster for Watchmen in Infinity Inc #29 from the summer of ’86:

Gibbons’ art looks gorgeous in black and white; again, I’m tempted by the black and white version of Watchmen as I was when I found the last poster.

The quote at the bottom didn’t sound familiar to me and a quick hunt around the net seems to confirm my suspicion that it’s original to the poster and echoes a famous line from Caligula . . . because, you know, that’s someone you want to emulate.

While hunting on the net, though, I found the film version of the above:

which is pretty faithful to the original.

And look at that release date – was it really nearly eight years ago?
