Grant Morrison and a storytelling technique of Watchmen

Grant Morrison about Pax Americana (art by Frank Quitely), part of his Multiversity project for DC Comics, yet to be published.
"We’re taking the characters and applying it back to Watchmen and seeing what we could get. Nobody has really used those Alan Moore tricks in 25 years so it seemed right to take that very tight, controlled, self-reflecting storytelling and seeing if we can do something new with it.[...] It’s not trying to be Watchmen, it’s more of an echo of a storytelling technique of Watchmen."

  1. Moore would never break a character-shot panel in two like Quitely has on the second page,3rd and fourth panels. Totally pointless story-telling.
