Random Flashes of Watchmen, Part 1

As I continue to digest the Watchmen experience, flashes of cool stuff keep coming back to me that I neglected to put in my review. They may be spoilery, but I'll try to avoid that for now.

In the establishing shot of the Comedian's funeral, the camera is zoomed in on a monument that appears to be the face of an angel, with raindrops splashing against it. As the camera pulls back, we see that a funeral is going on. This is the cover to issue #2 (see left). The unread viewer is going to completely miss this detail, but we "fanboys," as the media is so eloquently calling us, won't.
