Apparently this here picture has regained some slight internet currency what with the movie looming upon us and all. Around the era in which I still updated my art blog, I got a bit of criticism from other comics dorks, along the lines of “that picture is invalid! Everyone knows that Rorschach has symmetrical markings on his mask!” I thought it was pretty stupid at first, because the mechanism of the mask (two synthetic surfaces and an interstitial liquid, as I recall) would in real life have generated symmetrical markings about as well as your shirt generates symmetrical wrinkles, esp. when shit went down. But, I checked the book, and whoop de doo there is Rorschach with symmetrical markings on his face. I guess Moore and Gibbons were making some sort of metacommentary about the iconic status of (super)heroes with that, though I’m not sure I see where that metacommentary was going or if there was a comment behind it at all and not just mindfucking. Anyway, whatever: here is your freaking symmetrically-splattered chibi Rorschach, comics freaks from like three years ago. I serve it with condiments of social disdain. Taste the bitter flavor, and recoil!
