Ozymandias - absolute - Ozymandias: Section I (Lines 1-8) Summary - Shmoop

The rumblings first started when CBR’s own Kieran Shiach noticed that Cena’s Instagram account , which is notorious for containing photos completely devoid of context, featured an image of The Comedian’s blood-stained smiley-face button and a piece of fan art seemingly depicting the WWE Superstar as Doctor Manhattan (the chin and ears definitely give it away). From there, the speculation began to spread like wildfire, with countless comic and entertainment-centric websites and podcasts weighing in on Cena’s ability (or lack thereof) to faithfully portray the stoic, God-like blue being.

Creatively, the focus of Watchmen is on its structure. Gibbons used a nine-panel grid layout throughout the series and added recurring symbols such as a blood-stained smiley face . All but the last issue feature supplemental fictional documents that add to the series' backstory, and the narrative is intertwined with that of another story, an in-story pirate comic titled Tales of the Black Freighter , which one of the characters reads. Structured, at times, as a nonlinear narrative , the story skips through space, time and plot. In the same manner, entire scenes and dialogue have parallels with others through synchronicity, coincidence and repeated imagery.
