The use of colour in Watchmen

The importance of
 being coloured

It not only narrates how well-used are colours in the comic, but how it has been done in all Comic History. The main part of the project was, however, a visual study on cromatic ranges and colour harmonies.

All the book contains highlights and quotes from the authors. Typography is also a big component, used as a call for attention.
