Dog Carcass In Alley This Morning, Tire Tread on Burst Stomach. Original First Page of Watchmen Up For Auction

Got five figures to throw around on a piece of real comics history? Then you can go put in your bid at the Heritage Auction Galleries auction of the original pencil and inks of the first page of Watchmen, scripted by Alan Moore and drawn by Dave Gibbons.

The bidding currently stands at $6,500, but don’t expect it to stay there for long.  In the words of Heritage Auctions themselves:

Watchmen pages do not come along often, in fact Heritage has never offered one before! We know of many people who have read Watchmen who have never read any other comic book, and given that mass appeal, we expect very strong demand for this lot.

Just be careful when reading the rest of their description. It’s got a serious spoiler in it. ಠ_ಠ

For your hard earned cash, you also get the original color guide, and if all you whores and politicians look up and shout “But are the pages signed by Moore and Gibbons themselves?!”

I’ll look down and whisper “Yes.”
