Award season is here! We are pleased to share that SAUCER COUNTRY has been nominated for a Hugo Award and BEFORE WATCHMEN: SILK SPECTRE artist, Amanda Conner, has been nominated for a Reuben Award!

This Just Happened: The Comedian Gets His Pin

The S shield. The bat symbol. A Green Lantern’s ring. All of these iconic stamps symbolize who the characters they belong to are and what they represent.

 

Fans of the original WATCHMEN are more than familiar with the classic smiley-face pin that belongs to the infamous Comedian. Who could forget the iconic spattering of the character’s blood across the pin in the book’s opening scene?

 

But how did the Comedian get this smiley pin? What’s the sentimental value it holds that causes him to keep it on him at all times?
